Vanna White will be back on the board!

Wheel of Fortune confirmed Tuesday that White, 66, reached a deal with the show to extend her contract for two additional years, meaning she will continue on the syndicated game show through the 2025–26 season. As a result, White will work alongside Ryan Seacrest when he takes over hosting duties from Pat Sajak next fall.

Wheel of Fortune kicked off its 41st season last week, with Sajak's daughter Maggie returning as the game show's Social Media Correspondent.

A source with knowledge of White's negotiations previously told PEOPLE that the mom of two — who became a co-host of the game show in 1982 — was seeking pay parity with the longtime host after earning approximately $3 million a year for the 18 past years without any pay increases.

Sajak, 76, announced in June that he would retire after the show’s upcoming 41st season. The next month, Sony Pictures Television confirmed Seacrest, 48, as Sajak's replacement beginning in the fall of 2024.

Following the announcement, sources told PEOPLE that Sony Pictures Television was "in negotiations" with White and "would like to have her back."
