Why Candace Cameron Bure Is Leaving ‘The View'

Earlier this morning, Candace Cameron Bure made a big announcement on “The View.”

She told viewers, "It's a little bittersweet today because I'm announcing that I will be leaving 'The View.'”

Bure, who had been a co-host on the show for less than two seasons, also revealed the reason for her exit. "It wasn't an easy decision. Before I started 'The View,' I had already had my commitments to 'Fuller House' and my work with the Hallmark Channel… Because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows.” Watch!

Though her contract on "The View” was renewed, her show “Fuller House” was picked up for another season on Netflix. Her packed schedule also played a part in her difficult decision. "The commute of going West Coast to East Coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well. I want to make sure that I am able to spend as much time with my children."

After the announcement, Bure made sure to show her appreciation to her co-hosts. She shared, "I thank everybody — Whoopi [Goldberg], Joy [Behar] — for welcoming me to this table. I've learned so much from you and I'm so grateful for you… I tried to be Superwoman, but I'm going to not try anymore."

Executive producer Candi Carter had similar sentiments about Candace, saying, "On behalf of everyone at 'The View,' it's been a pleasure working with Candace, a devoted mother, talented actress, and passionate co-host who never hesitated to speak her mind. We are thrilled for her success with 'Fuller House' and her Hallmark movies. She will always be a part of 'The View' family and we will gladly welcome her back to the show to support her with all of her endeavors."
