A voice we’ve dearly missed is finally coming back to late night. David Letterman has officially booked his Netflix debut with new series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction; setting a monthly schedule with guests like George Clooney and Barack Obama. Watch the first teaser!
Like so many famous Davids, you’d never know if Letterman was content to enjoy retirement, or stage an unexpected comeback. The revered interviewer and former Late Show host is officially making a return to our lives, leading – what else – a new Netflix series doing what he does best.
Anyone following David Letterman (and his giant beard)’s post-retirement from The Late Show can’t help a smile at the veteran comic’s irreverent outlook. To wit, Letterman reveals in a new interview that he “couldn’t care less” about Stephen Colbert’s new Late Show, or any other series out there, wondering why the job didn’t go to a female host.
