Jenny McCarthy has confirmed she’s not returning to “The View,” on the heels of Sherri Shepherd’s own announcement that she’s leaving the morning talk show.

“My View will be changing too. As will with many hard working folks,” McCarthy tweeted.

She went on, “Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year.”

McCarthy joined the series last fall, replacing Joy Behar.

As Gossip Cop reported earlier, Shepherd announced her own exit earlier on Thursday night.

McCarthy also tweeted, “If Sherri goes… I go too. #sisters,” and posted a selfie with Shepherd vowing a comeback — see below.

A rep for “The View” tell us, “‘The View’ will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively.”

The chatfest is expected to undergo a major retooling before the next season begins, with Whoopi Goldberg serving as the only returning co-host.

Creator Barbara Walters, who retired last month but currently remains as the series’ executive producer, has expressed interest in adding a male to the panel.
