Actress Candace Cameron Bure will be leaving ABC's "The View."

Cameron Bure announced her departure on the Dec. 8 episode of the talk show, after taking time off to film in California, reports Variety.

Cameron Bure had previously been traveling between Los Angeles and New York while working on "Fuller House" and "The View," and cited bi-coastal travel as the reason for her exit, according to Daily Mail.

“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, and I want to make sure that I’m able to spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent,” Cameron Bure said.

“It’s a lot,” she added. “I’ve tried to be superwoman and I’m going to not try anymore.”

Cameron Bure thanked Barbara Walters and showrunner Candi Carter for her time on "The View," and expressed gratitude for knowledge gleaned from Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg while co-hosting the show.

“I want to thank you [Behar and Goldberg] for welcoming me to this table,” Cameron Bure said. “I have learned to much for you, and I’m so grateful for you.”

Cameron Bure joined the show in 2015, and was credited as being the strongest conservative voice on the panel in her two seasons with the show.

The actress originally rose to fame for her role as D.J. Tanner on “Full House” in the early 1990s, which she reprised in Netflix’s 2016 reboot of the series, “Fuller House.”

Cameron Bure recently celebrated her 20th wedding anniversary to former NHL player Valeri Bure, which whom she has three children -- Natasha, 18, Lev, 16, and Maksim, 14.

In response to Cameron Bure’s departing words, Goldberg joked "You miss your family ... with all the sex talk we do, you miss your husband."

Cameron Bure laughingly agreed.
