‘Carpool Karaoke’ Cruises Into Second Season at Apple

CBS boss Les Moonves announces ”Late Late Show“ spinoff series’ renewal

Apple is keeping James Corden in their passenger seat. CBS CEO Les Moonves announced the late-night host’s “Carpool Karaoke” has been renewed for a second season, during a conference call on Thursday.

The CBS-produced series — a spinoff of Corden’s popular segment on the network’s “Late Late Show” — began streaming on Apple Music last summer, with a pilot featuring Will Smith. The  show is one of the tech giant’s first moves into original programming. Other A-list guests in season 1 included Alicia Keys, John Legend, Blake Shelton, Camila Cabello, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

An individual close to production confirmed to TheWrap the series has been granted a second season by Apple.

“Carpool Karaoke” remains separate from Apple’s video programming endeavors, led by Sony TV vets Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht. It is instead considered an addition to the company’s $10-per-month streaming service.
