David Letterman has set his Netflix return.
Fresh off a (remote) appearance at the Emmys, the former late-night host’s Netflix interview series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, will return Oct. 21 with a four-episode season.
The abbreviated third cycle — down from its previous order of six episodes — will feature interviews with Kim Kardashian West, Robert Downey Jr., Dave Chappelle and Lizzo.
All four episodes will be available when the Emmy-nominated series returns next month. (Season one was a weekly rollout, while the sophomore run was released all at once.)
This marks the first official news about the future of Letterman’s show, which had last released a special in October 2019 after wrapping season two in summer 2019.
While not a traditional talk show — Letterman’s interviews are extensive and pre-taped, often outside of the studio — My Next Guest lends some stability to the genre with which Netflix has struggled. The streamer last month canceled Patriot Act With Hasan Minhaj, which joined a string of fellow Netflix takers to be canceled after a short run including The Break With Michelle Wolf, The Joel McHale Show and Chelsea.
