After retiring from The Late Show on CBS a couple years ago, David Letterman will be returning to the small screen on a new Netflix show.

Do you miss David Letterman? Then I’ve got some fantastic news for you!

News outlets across the web such as Fox News are reporting that Letterman will be stepping out of retirement for a new small screen program. Currently untitled, Letterman’s new show will premiere on Netflix sometime in 2018.

But this isn’t going to be a weekly talk show for the streaming service, similar to how new episodes of Chelsea premiere every Friday on Netflix. This will be a mini-series consisting of six episodes. It’s not yet clear whether Letterman will do more episodes following the release of these ones, but it’s probably depending on the reception.

In 2015, Letterman stepped down as the host of The Late Show after 33 years. He’ll always be known as one of late night’s all-time greats, and as fantastic as Stephen Colbert has been in his absence, the world still misses Letterman. It’s safe to say there’s going to be a lot of fan interest in this show.

Episodes will be an hour long and consist of two segments. First, Letterman will have a sit down interview with some yet to be named guests. Then he will apparently bring the action outside of the studio to do some segments “sparked by his curiosity and humor.”

We will of course be keeping an eye on this as it develops, so continue to come back to Last Night On for more updates!
