They’re already doing group hugs on The View.

The talk show released the first official photo of its new hosting panel to PEOPLE in anticipation of its Sept. 15 return to ABC.

Veteran panelist Whoopi Goldberg will be joined by three personalities – the returning Rosie O’Donnell, actress Rosie Perez and former MSNBC analyst Nicolle Wallace – for the show’s 18th season debut.

Expect lots of getting-to-know-you talk among the newest fearsome foursome as they prepare for life without Barbara Walters, one of the show’s founders in 1997. Walters left the show in May.

Perez, best known for her work in Do the Right Thing and White Men Can’t Jump, and Wallace succeed Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.
