Vice President Kamala Harris is talking hot topics on The View.

"Season 25 is a landmark for The View and we are thrilled to make the historic announcement that this Friday, September 24th, in her first television in-studio interview since taking office Vice President Kamala Harris will be here at our table," co-host Whoopi Goldberg said in an announcement on Monday alongside Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin and guest host Carly Fiorina, a former Republican presidential candidate.

Goldberg, 65, added, "We got questions for her! 'Cause that's what we do."

Harris, 56, will be sitting down with Hostin, 52, Haines, 44, Goldberg, Joy Behar and guest co-host Ana Navarro to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. pulling out of Afghanistan after 20 years of war, immigration, voting rights and more, per ABC News.

The appearance is her first for an in-studio talk show since she was sworn in as vice president.

Previously, Harris made two in-studio View appearances as a senator for California and three remote interviews during the 2020 presidential campaign amid the pandemic. (She has made several other media appearances as vice president, including on the morning shows.)

This is also only the second time a sitting vice president has been on the show, per the Associated Press. Now-President Joe Biden was the first, under Barack Obama's presidency.

Due to Meghan McCain's departure from The View in August, Harris will not face a conservative co-host.
