Stephen Colbert's special post-Super Bowl edition of The Late Show promises to be a star-studded one.

Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Margot Robbie, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will appear on the live telecast on Sunday, Feb. 7, the late-night hosted announced Thursday on Twitter.

The official announcement touting Colbert's lineup also promised "special guests and surprises" along the way. The Late Show will air live from New York, followed by a special edition of The Late Late Show With James Corden. Corden has already announced at least one very special guest: Elton John, who will take part in Corden's famous "Carpool Karaoke" segment that has become one of his signature bits.

The move towards late-night programming is a clear diversion from the trend of primetime shows, particularly scripted entries, getting the plum time slot in recent years. Colbert, who started in September, has been posting gains across the board from where predecessor David Letterman was last season.

Super Bowl 50 airs Sunday, Feb. 7, on CBS.
