Wendy William’s eponymous talk show will not be returning this fall.

The famous host insists she’ll be back in her purple chair in September — but it’s “logistically impossible,” according to multiple insiders.

For starters, TV insiders point out that the production company, Debmar-Mercury, has signed a deal with The View alum Sherri Shepherd to fill Williams’ time slots.

“Where’s she gonna go? It’s done. Logistically, it won’t work. Sherri has her time slots,” an insider told Page Six.

Williams sat down for an IG Live with Fat Joe over the weekend and insisted she’ll “absolutely” be returning, and that she won’t be tuning in for Shepherd’s show.

“I’m coming back to The Wendy Williams Show. Absolutely. Absolutely,” she told the rapper, who has been filling in with Remy Ma as a guest host during Williams’ absence.

And when it comes to Shepherd’s show: “That’s not really my thing… anyway, but I love being on my own show, and I love that people love to watch it all the time,” she said.

Fat Joe has been one of the multiple guest hosts to fill in for Williams during her year-long absence. Williams even told him she only wants him and Ma to fill in for her going forward.

“I love everyone hosting it, but I have to say, I wish you only did that… I love you two or just her or just you,” she said.

Another insider told  Debmar-Mercury “is not happy” that Fat Joe interviewed Williams.

“He didn’t give them a heads-up about it and she did not appear well. She didn’t seem like she was all there. At times, she couldn’t even complete a sentence,” the source said.

They also said the elephant in the room is that “Wendy is uninsurable.”

“She has not been able to consistently work… She did not have the mental and physical capacity to host her show,” they said. “[Debmar] wanted her back more than anybody. They would’ve loved for her to finish out this chapter.”
