Network chairman Bob Greenblatt made the announcement during NBC’s panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena.
Meyers began his tenure at “Late Night” in February 2014.
“As a writer, performer and host, Seth has a rich history at NBC and we are thrilled that he’ll be at the helm of ‘Late Night’ for many more years,” Greenblatt said in a statement. “His knowledge of both current events and pop culture is unparalleled and he brings that expertise to ‘Late Night’ every night. The show couldn’t be in better hands.”
Meyers will also host a 2016 New Year’s Eve “Late Night” 10 p.m. primetime special that will highlight all the news and current events of the year.
From Universal Television and Broadway Video, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” is executive produced by Lorne Michaels (“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Saturday Night Live”) and produced by Mike Shoemaker (“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Saturday Night Live”).
