The show's distributor, Debmar-Mercury, announced that the Fox Television Stations Group approved a three-season pickup Tuesday.  

The renewal comes after a year of ratings growth for the syndicated talk show host, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In the key demographic of women 25-to-54 the show grew 43 percent in the past year.

"We have such an eclectic show on The Wendy Williams Show. It is the only place where you could see Nas, on the couch, rip the mic and in the same show you will see Rachel Maddow," the daytime talk show host told ABC News Radio previously.
