“If you’re wondering where Whoopi is, the girl’s got a movie she’s making, and she will be back when she finishes whatever she’s doing,” co-host Joy Behar said during “The View” on Monday. “So she’s gone for a while.”

Goldberg is reportedly in Scotland as she films Amazon Prime’s upcoming series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys, according to People.
The news comes shortly after Goldberg was suspended for two months from “The View” after remarks that the Holocaust was “not about race,” despite Nazi Germany specifically targeting the death of Jewish people over their race.
The new film project may have led to speculation regarding the co-host’s absence, but her fellow co-hosts have clearly noted Goldberg plans to return to her role soon, and has not been canceled yet.
