The search is over! Actress Rosie Perez and political commentator Nicolle Wallace are joining The View.

They'll be joining Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg when the new season kicks off September 15th on ABC. Perez and Wallace are replacing Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy, who exited last month.

Perez says she's "beyond thrilled, honored and completely surprised" to be joining The View.

Wallace, who is a best-selling author and political analyst for MSNBC, says she's "honored to join the tradition of compelling conversations that has been the signature of The View for the better part of two decades."
