Two years after ending his run as host of The Late Show, television icon David Letterman is returning to the small screen with a new talk show! I specifically say small screen because he’s not returning to television, he’s going to the streaming world of Netflix.
Two years after signing off CBS’ ‘The Late Show,’ David Letterman is returning to the small screen. Details: https://t.co/bAGQSsMoux

The show is currently set for a six episode limited run and each episode will feature long-form interviews with a single guest. I’m thinking the show will be less Jimmy Kimmel and more Charlie Rose, which I’m all for.
I’ve missed Letterman’s presence as a late night host and while he hasn’t been totally absent from the screen since leaving CBS, he’s been a correspondent for the excellent NatGeo series, Years of Living Dangerously, I’m glad he’s back in an interview format.
David’s yet-to-be titled Netflix show will debut in 2018.0
