Here are five late night television guests coming this week that fans should be excited to watch.

It’s Monday and that means the start of another week in late night television. Fans should especially be excited to know that the entire lineup of shows is set to debut new episodes, meaning there will be no shortage of celebrity interviews.

While the COVID-19 pandemic suspended production on television series and films, there is still a number of new releases set for the coming weeks and months. Among Netflix, Amazon, and other streaming services, there remains plenty of ways to deliver entertainment right to audiences’ homes.

And that means that the stars are on promotional tours unlike any other they’ve likely experienced. Late night television remains one of the best ways to promote a show, movie, album, or just about anything else.

Here are five guests coming to late night this week. Not only do they have something new to share with audiences but fans should be excited just to see them on screen with their favorite late night host.

Evan Rachel Wood

Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood kicks things off. You can catch her on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday, May 4.

We won’t spoil anything from the season three finale that aired Sunday night. But Westworld fans will definitely want to catch up on the latest twists and turns before tuning in to Wood’s interview with Jimmy Fallon.

If Fallon asks Wood what is next for her career, she may talk about her film Kajillionaire. Directed by Miranda July and co-starring Richard Jenkins, Debra Winger, and Gina Rodriguez, the comedy-drama is set to be released on June 19.

Jerry Seinfeld

In times like these, comedians are more valuable than ever. And there is nobody better to hear from than Jerry Seinfeld. You can see him on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, May 5.

Seinfeld will be out promoting 23 Hours to Kill, his new Netflix stand-up special. It will be released on the same day he connects with Jimmy Kimmel.

Expect Kimmel to let Seinfeld do his thing and explain what life in quarantine is like for him. Between spending time with his kids, watching television, and missing the Mets, Seinfeld should have plenty to say in a way only he can say it.

Pete Davidson and Judd Apatow

Saturday Night Live and comedy fans will want to catch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, May 7. Pete Davidson and Judd Apatow will appear together in a two-for-one deal on late night guests.

The pair are promoting their movie The King of Staten Island. The semi-autobiographical film stars Davidson and is directed by Apatow from a script they co-wrote. Also appearing in the cast are Bill Burr, Marisa Tomei, and Maude Apatow.

The comedy was originally set for a June 19 theatrical release but was canceled due to the pandemic. Instead, audiences can get the movie on-demand starting June 12.

Lizzy Caplan

Close out your late night television week by watching an interview with Lizzy Caplan. The actress visits Conan on Thursday, May 7.

With credits like Mean GirlsCloverfield, and Masters of Sex, Caplan has put together an impressive and diverse resume. And as the interview above shows, Caplan and Conan O’Brien have a solid chemistry that has made for entertaining interviews over the years.

Caplan’s name has been in the news recently both for her work on a Tribeca Film Festival Jury and rumors that Now You See Me 3 is picking up steam. There should be plenty to discuss on Conan.
