If your late night TV viewing hasn’t been the same since David Letterman left ‘The Late Show’, well, do I have some good news for you.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Letterman will be making his return to TV hosting a new talk show that will be coming to Netflix.

“The series will premiere in 2018 and consist of six pre-recorded hourlong episodes in which Letterman will conduct longform conversations with a singular guest as well as exploring topics on his own — outside of the studio, THR notes.
“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 in a statement.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos added, “Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together. David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can’t wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We’ll have to see if he keeps the beard.”
