David Letterman Takes Netflix

Some more late nights are coming David Letterman’s way. The star is returning to television in a new Netflix series.


According to a press release from the streaming service, the show, which is yet to be named, will air six episodes.


Over the course of the series, Letterman will experiment with two segment forms. In each hour-long episode, the former “Late Night” and “Late Show” host will have the opportunity to have a long-form conversation with a singular guest, while also exploring topics in field pieces outside of the studio.


Letterman was last seen on TV as a late show host in May of 2015, after an impressive 33-year, 6,028-episode career. He is the the longest-running late-night broadcaster in American history.


Here's what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first,” Letterman joked in the statement.


The show does not yet have a specific release date, but is set to air some time next year.
