Candace Cameron Bure will leave”The View,” the latest of a long series of shifts of on-air personnel at the ABC daytime talk show.

The actress, who joined the program in 2015, said at the opening of Thursday’s broadcast that her deepening commitments to act in the Netflix series “Fuller House” and in projects backed by the Hallmark and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries cable networks had created a conflict. She regularly commutes from the west coast for her duties on the New York-based “View,” she said, and needed to consider her family’s needs in the situation.

With her departure, “The View” will feature six different co-hosts, rather than the eight with which it began its current season. In October Raven-Symoné said she would leaving the show by the end of 2016 to develop a spinoff of her popular Disney Channel series, “That’s So Raven.”

ABC has been seeking ways to winnow down the program’s unwieldy number of on-air personnel.  

Joy Behar, Paula Faris, Sara Haines, Jedediah Bila, Sunny Hostin and moderator Whoopi Goldberg also appear regularly on the show.
