Wendy Williams is further delaying her show return after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

The “Wendy Williams Show” Instagram account announced Wednesday that the daytime host, 57, is battling a “breakthrough case of COVID-19.”

“While continuing her evaluations, Wendy has tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19,” the statement began.

“To allow Wendy time to quarantine and fully recover and to ensure that our production abides by all SAG/AFTRA and DGA Covid protocols, we expect to begin the 13th season of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ on Monday, October 4th.”

The show will air repeats in the interim.

The announcement comes after Williams had to bow out of promotional activities because of “ongoing health issues” that required “further evaluations.”

After news of Williams’ health issues broke, a source told Page Six exclusively that she likely wouldn’t make it to her show’s premiere.

“People are tight-lipped about it, but there are whispers that she won’t be there,” the source shared.

In a conversation with Dr. Oz in March, Williams expressed hesitancy about getting the COVID-19 jab.

“No. I don’t trust it,” she said. “I’ve never gotten the flu shot either, though, and you and I have talked about that. Several of the on my team have told me, ‘Wendy, get the flu shot.’ I’ve never had the flu. I’m not getting a flu shot. I very rarely get a cold. I never have headaches. I don’t take Aspirin because I feel my heart murmur or something like that. I’m not getting it — no! I don’t trust it. There, I said it.”

In May, however, Williams announced that her live studio audience would be able to return on June 1 only if they were fully vaccinated.

A rep for Williams didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment when asked whether she ever got the vaccine, which would explain her “breakthrough” case.
