THE TALK is back live in studio! The 11th season of the Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show THE TALK premieres Monday, Sept. 21 (2:00-3:00 PM, ET; 1:00-2:00 PM, PT/CT) on the CBS Television Network, hosted by Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Eve and Carrie Ann Inaba. The season premiere marks a return to set since the hosts began shooting the show from home in March. While Osbourne, Underwood and Inaba return to studio in Los Angeles, Eve will join via remote from a studio based in London. Celebrity guests for the week include actress and talk show host Drew Barrymore, actor Sterling K. Brown, actress and radio host Jenny McCarthy Wahlberg, actor Rob Lowe, television host Dr. Phil McGraw and New York Times best-selling author and chef Ayesha Curry.

The season kicks off with newly announced joint executive producers/showrunners Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews at the helm. The multi-Daytime Emmy Award-winning duo have been with THE TALK since season one, which premiered in October 2010.

THE TALK will reveal a fully redesigned open-concept set, featuring eclectic club chairs handpicked individually by and for each host. The new stage layout is reconfigured to observe social distancing and will be without a studio audience. Guests will appear live on the show via Skype.

The overall theme for Season 11 is “Speak Up & Be Heard,” with the show debuting new signature segments, including “The Daily Catch Up,” “The Talk Talks Back,” “Eat Up” and “Feel Good Fridays.” “The Daily Catch Up” will start the show with the hosts sharing personal details of what they did the night before or over the weekend. The show will engage in thought provoking, topical and personal conversations with guests, and the hosts will conduct intimate one-on-one celebrity interviews as part of special episodes throughout the season.

In “The Talk Talks Back,” the ladies will read audience comments from various social media platforms and address them with honesty and humor. “Eat Up” will feature expanded cooking demos with fun and informative themed weeks. Every other Friday, the show will highlight hometown heroes and struggling small business owners in “Feel Good Friday,” giving them a $1,000 gift card in recognition of their work. THE TALK’s home audience will be asked to nominate people in their communities who are making a difference.

Additionally, THE TALK will launch a series of special event-themed episodes called “Having the Talk.” In October, the series will debut with “Having the Talk: Mental Health & Wellness.”
