David Letterman to make comeback with new Netflix talk show

David Letterman to make comeback with new Netflix talk show”

Some more late nights are coming David Letterman's way.

Letterman, who has grown a large white beard since leaving "The Late Show" in May 2015, was succeeded on the CBS show by Stephen Colbert.

The untitled one-hour series will feature one in-depth interview per episode, as well as in-the-field segments, Netflix said.

"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 six-episode untitled series, which is expected to premiere in 2018, will see Letterman conducting long-form interviews with global and local personalities.

"Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together", said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix.

Letterman's Worldwide Pants is co-producing the project along with RadicalMedia.

The combination of the idea of wanting to do something different and the added convenience was too irresistible, according to Letterman.

From his roots in comedy, Letterman also became renowned as an interviewer, sharing the stage with US presidents, cabinet officials, Medal of Honor recipients, and virtually every presidential candidate for more than 20 years.

Known for his quick wit, sarcasm, offbeat humor and silly stunts, Letterman interviewed top stars and political figures on more than 6,000 episodes over 33 years in late-night television.

Since retiring from his long-running talk show, Letterman has reappeared sporadically in media. He only made a handful of appearances which include the time he became a correspondent on the National Geographic Channel documentary series called, "Years of Living Dangerously".

After learning that Donald Trump will run for president, Letterman briefly came out of retirement previous year and made an appearance at Steve Martin and Martin Short's "A Very Stupid Conversation" where he made fun of Trump's presidential campaign.
