“Well, I made the announcement yesterday that I am leaving The View and today is officially my last day,” Bure, who joined the show in 2015, told audiences.
“I will miss all of you, too. They told me I’m welcome back any time and I would love to come back, so I won’t be a stranger,” the mother of three told her co-hosts.
Asked by Joy Behar if she’s enjoyed her time on the show, Bure, 40, responded, “Very, very much. I really have learned so much and I’ll take it with me forever. Listen, this show is legendary and to think that I have been a part of it is really incredible, so I’m very blessed and thankful for the opportunity that I had.”
“Everyone, have a great day and take a little time to enjoy the view,” she signed off the weekly show.
On Thursday, Bure said of her reasoning for leaving the show: “It wasn’t an easy decision, but before I started The View, I had already had my commitments to Fuller House and my work with the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries. And because of the success of those, my commitments have become even greater with those shows.”
“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 said. “And I want to make sure that I’m able to spend at much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent.”
“It’s a lot,” she added. “I’ve tried to be superwoman and I’m going to not try anymore.”
Sitting down with PEOPLE Now, Bure said of leaving the show, “Honestly, it’s the travel. I have traveled coast to coast every single week so I could be at home on the weekends with my family, and then back to work in New York during the week,” and added, “I’ve enjoyed the experience so much. I really grew and learned a lot from the show, but I’m happy to be able to spend more time in LA and do more of my full-time jobs there.”
On Friday, the second season of Fuller House dropped on Netflix, on which Bure stars as D.J. Tanner-Fuller.
