James Corden is booking a return trip home, and he's bringing viewers with him for the ride.

The Late Late Show will travel to London for three back-to-back shows broadcast from the historic Central Hall Westminster. Cordon's signature late-night segments, such as "Carpool Karaoke," will get a signature British twist with the move, which marks the first international trip for Corden's iteration of The Late Late Show.

The episodes are slated to air June 6-8 in the U.S. Sky, the U.K. home for The Late Late Show, will broadcast the three special episodes June 7–9 at 10 p.m. on Sky 1 and Now TV.

“To bring The Late Late Show to London is a dream come true for me,” Corden said in a statement.. “I'm incredibly proud of the show, and we're going to do our best to make this week in London memorable.”

Although this is Corden's first time bringing The Late Late Show abroad, the late-night has a few stamps in its passport. Former host Craig Ferguson filmed from his native Scotland several times. Jimmy Kimmel has traveled with his show to Brooklyn, Jimmy Fallon to Hollywood and Orlando, and Corden's NBC time slot opponent Seth Meyers filmed a week of shows from Washington, D.C., in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election.

More than anyone, Conan O'Brien has frequently traveled to exotic locales for his TBS show to draw viewers. Recent excursions include Mexico City, Berlin, Cuba, Armenia, the Middle East and even San Diego Comic-Con.

Less than two weeks ago, Corden paid tribute to London after several people were killed in a deadly attack there.
