Netflix is keeping David Letterman in the talk-show game a little longer. The streamer announced Friday it has renewed the late-night legend’s “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman” for a second season.
Letterman’s series will return with six new episodes in 2019, “combining humor, curiosity and in-depth conversations with extraordinary people.” Guests for Season 2 will be announced at a later date.
The first season of “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” launched in January 2018, with Netflix releasing six episodes (usually one per month), each featuring one guest. Over the course of Season 1, Letterman sat down with Barack Obama, Jay-Z, Malala Yousafzai, George Clooney, Tina Fey, and Howard Stern.
The Emmy-nominated series is Letterman’s first since he vacated his seat at CBS’ “The Late Show” in 2015.
Letterman hosts and executive produces “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” which is also executive produced by Lydia Tenaglia, Sandy Zweig, Chris Collins, and Chris Cechin-De la Rosa for Zero Point Zero Productions and Tom Keaney and Mary Barclay for Worldwide Pants.
