David Letterman Is Coming to Netflix

David Letterman is coming to Netflix.

Letterman––whose run in network late night lasted for over three decades––is returning to TV three years after ending his long run at The Late Show.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Letterman’s Netflix show will be a talk show as well––joining Chelsea Handler‘s Netflix show––but with a different format:

Unlike The Late Show, each hourlong episode of the Netflix series will be prerecorded and feature Letterman conducting longform conversations with a singular guest as well as exploring topics on his own — outside of the studio. A guest list has not yet been revealed.

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here’s what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely,” Letterman said.

Letterman has been mostly out of the spotlight since his CBS departure, save for a few interviews and public appearances.

And Letterman isn’t the only old late night host making a TV comeback––Jay Leno is currently on season 3 of his CNBC show Jay Leno’s Garage.
