"The Talk" might undergo hosting changes in season 2. Sources say Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete are not expected to return for the upcoming second season since their options have not been picked up, while the show evaluates its creative direction.

Meanwhile, the CBS talk show has renewed deals for other co-hosts Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen. Sharon, however, will only return after the fall because she wants to spend some time off with her husband Ozzy Osbourne.

The network says producers are currently working on the show's creative game plan for season 2. Deadline adds that decision about hiring new co-hosts will be made afterwards. The new season itself is set to be kicked off on Tuesday, September 6.

"The Talk" was premiered in October 2010 and averaged 2.2 million viewers in July, which marked its largest audience since February. Marissa Jaret Winokur, one of the original six hosts, has left the show in early this year.

SO SAD TO SEE LEAH REMINI GO, "THE TALK" WAS GREAT TO WATCH, LEAH ALWAYS CRACKED ME UP. I HOPE CBS DOESN'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES AS ABC HAS THIS PAST YEAR. LET'S TALK - PUN INTENDED ABOUT "BRINGING LEAH BACK".

I never understand decisions like this. They were the best of the bunch. Sharon is so unprofessional, Sarah is boring and Chen is married to the boss.

I LOVE Leah Remini! She cracks me up and is mostly the reason I watch the show in the first place. I love the 5 current hosts. I think they are a great mix. Would be so sad to see Leah and Holly go.
