During Thursday's episode, Candace Cameron Bure announced her plans to leave the show to focus on other projects and her family.

"It's a little bittersweet today because I'm announcing that I will be leaving The View," Bure said during the show. "It wasn't an easy decision. Before I started The View, I had already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel... Because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows."

Bure has been a co-host on The View for less than two seasons. She joined in 2015 while she was simultaneously filming Fuller House. Having commitments to both shows meant commuting across the country, another reason for her departure from The View, she said.

"The commute of going west coast to east coast every single week for me has been tough on me and hard for my family as well," she explained. "I want to make sure that I am able to spend as much time with my children."

The show's producers wished Bure well in a statement released after she made her announcement.

"On behalf of everyone at The View, it's been a pleasure working with Candace, a devoted mother, talented actress, and passionate co-host who never hesitated to speak her mind," the statement read. "We are thrilled for her success with Fuller House and her Hallmark movies. She will always be a part of The View family and we will gladly welcome her back to the show to support her with all of her endeavors."
