Meyers has renewed his deal to continue as host of the 12:35 a.m. show through 2025. The four year-extension comes as his current deal, signed back in 2016, was set to expire.
The new deal will take Meyers through his 11th year hosting the show, which will tie him with David Letterman for the second-longest tenure at Late Night. Meyers took over as host from Jimmy Fallon in February 2014.
Additionally, Meyers and producing partner Mike Shoemaker have signed an overall deal for their Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions at Universal Studio Group. That deal also runs through 2025. The company is behind Peacock’s A.P. Bio and The Amber Ruffin Show.
“Seth is a rare talent who makes America laugh and think every night,” said Katie Hockmeyer, executive vp late night programming at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “His ‘Closer Look’ segments are classic combinations of comedy with commentary. Seth is a brilliant stand-up comedian, interviewer and political commentator. His voice matters more now than ever.”
Late Night With Seth Meyers has been nominated for Emmys for outstanding writing for a variety series in each of the past four years. The show leads its 12:35 a.m. time slot in both total viewers and the key ad demographic of adults 18-49.
