Aisha Tyler exiting The Talk to pursue directing

After six seasons as a cohost on The Talk, Aisha Tyler is leaving the CBS daytime show. Tyler recently directed her first feature film, titled Axis, and her experience on the film has made her realise it is the direction she wants her to career to go in.

In addition to "The Talk", the 46-year-old Tyler has a recurring role on "Criminal Minds" and hosts The CW's rebooted version of "Whose Line Is It Anyway?". She also cited the success of Wonder Woman and the likes of Ava DuVernay for making her realize "this is a really important time for female directors".

Tyler seemingly teased the news ahead of Thursday's show when she posted a cryptic message on social media.

Tyler came aboard in 2011 along with comedian Sheryl Underwood.

Julie Chen confirmed that Tyler would be on the show until July, and said that Tyler "made the last six years of my life so solid and amusing and smart and just secure, I couldn't fly this plane with any other person to my right".

Tyler said she intends to return to "The Talk", both as a guest and a drop-in host. "I knew that was what I wanted to do the rest of my life, what I wanted to put my energy into".

Aisha struggled to contain her emotions as she broke the news and cried. I could not have done with this without you. 'I have had an awesome six years with you guys. Who should replace her at the table?

Today during the daytime series, Tyler confirmed that she is departing the show. I'll never be able to thank you guys enough'.

The "biggest breakup of my life" is likely her recent divorce from longtime husband Jeff Tietjens, which she also discussed on The Talk. What do you think of her decision to leave The Talk?

After being a part of The Talk on CBS for many years, Aisha Tyler is preparing to walk off into the unset.
