David Letterman Comes Back From Retirement For Netflix Deal

It’s been 2 years since David Letterman left his long-time run on “The Late Show.” Now, he’s coming out of retirement to be the host of a new Netflix special, set to premiere in 2018.

The show is a yet-to-be-titled 6 episode series, and will be a “late night” talk show much like his old days as a host on CBS. The difference with this program is that the interviews will be longform conversations, and Dave will also explore different topics outside of the studio.

Letterman said about the new series, “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.”

When Letterman’s last episode of “The Late Show” aired in 2015, nearly 14 million viewers tuned in to see him signing off–so it’s safe to say this Netflix show will have a a lot of interest once 2018 rolls around.

Congrats, Dave!
