Good Morning America and Robin Roberts have finally announced a return date for the anchor, and it’s Feb. 20.
Five months to the day she underwent a bone marrow transplant for myelodysplastic syndrome, which is a rare blood disorder, she will make her official return to the show.
"Robin will be back on an abbreviated schedule," co-anchor Sam Champion explained, USA Today reports, "but eventually we'll get her five days a week."
Roberts has said she is "excited to re-join my wonderful GMA family,” adding she is, “also looking forward to thanking YOU ... for your many prayers and well wishes. Your compassion has been an enormous source of comfort to me and my family."
Last month, Roberts made her return to the GMA studios to start her practice run, in order for her to ease her way into working and for her skin to get used to the bright lights.
"My doctors want me to see how many people I actually come in contact with," she explained. "How my body reacts to the stimulation, that's code word for stress, of being in the studio environment."
