Comedian Rosie O’Donnell will rejoin ABC’s The View as the program’s producers look to shake things up on one of the longest running day-time talk shows ever, the network confirmed Thursday.

O’Donnell, an often provocative television personality whose own talk show ended in 2002, was previously a panelist on The View but left in 2007 after only one season.

ABC said O’Donnell will co-host The View with current moderator Whoopi Goldberg. O’Donnell will join a heavily modified crew after a series of prominent departures which included the retirement of the show’s co-founder Barbara Walters in May.
