James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" is returning to primetime.

The hugely popular Late Late Show segment will be the subject of a second primetime special set to air in May.

The hourlong telecast will feature new "Carpool Karaoke" and "Toddlerography" segments, as well as highlight Corden's favorite clips from his CBS late-night show. 

Featured guests and additional details will be announced closer to the special's May 22 airdate. 

The installment comes roughly a year after the first Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special, which featured special guest Jennifer Lopez. The special drew a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 in live numbers and won an Emmy for outstanding variety special.

The 2017 edition also comes as Apple Music, in conjunction with producer CBS TV Studios, prepares to launch a Carpool Karaoke series that will feature a revolving group of guest hosts in place of Corden.

Corden's other popular Late Late Show segment, "Drop the Mic," is also getting its own series on TBS later this year.

"Carpool Karaoke" isn't the only late-night segment receiving the primetime treatment. NBC is set to roll out several Weekend Update specials based on the long-running Saturday Night Live segment in August.

The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special 2017 airs Monday, May 22, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
