The First Lady is set to appear on the Sept. 28 episode of the CBS late-night show.

Stephen Colbert's Late Show wouldn't be a talk show without a visit from Michelle Obama.

The media-friendly First Lady will stop by the CBS late-night show on Monday, Sept. 28, CBS announced Friday. Her appearance will take place the same night Trevor Noah kicks off his new Daily Show on Colbert's old stomping ground of Comedy Central.

Obama has made multiple appearances on Colbert's late-night rivals, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live, as well as David Letterman's Late Show before the longtime host signed off in May. She's also been a frequent guest on daytime talk shows like Ellen and Live With Kelly and Michael. And she appeared on multiple episodes of Colbert's eponymous Comedy Central show and Jon Stewart's Daily Show.



"It's always an honor to have the First Lady," Colbert said in a statement. "Better than that, it’s always fun!"

Obama frequently talks about her healthy-eating and exercise initiatives on her talk-show appearances but with Colbert she's set to talk about education, specifically her "Let Girls Learn" program designed to help girls from around the world, half of whom are adolescent, attend school and her "Reach Higher" initiative, designed to inspire people to complete their higher education.



Her husband, President Barack Obama, has also been a frequent talk-show guest, making multiple appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Letterman's Late Show, Jon Stewart's Daily Show and The Colbert Report as well as appearing on daytime shows like Ellen, The View and Live With Kelly and Michael.

Michelle Obama is just the latest political guest booked for Colbert's new Late Show. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush and Vice President Joe Biden both appeared during Colbert's first week and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is set to appear on tonight's show with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump booked for Sept. 22.
