David Letterman isn’t staying retired. The former late-night fixture is returning to television with a new series for Netflix.
“The yet-to-be-named, six-episode series has Letterman combining two interests for which he is renowned: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor,” Netflix says in today’s announcement. “In each hour-long episode, Letterman will conduct a long-form conversation with a singular guest — and will also explore topics on his own, away from the studio. The series is set to premiere in 2018.”
Letterman comments in the announcement: “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.”
