Netflix snags new David Letterman series

David Letterman is going from late night to any time.

Netflix has snagged a new series with the longtime “Late Show” host, which marks his return to television.

The untitled one-hour series will feature one in-depth interview per episode, as well as in-the-field segments, Netflix said.

The six-episode first season is expected to air in 2018.

Letterman acknowledged his coming out of retirement in a statement released by the streaming network.

He is the longest-serving host in U.S. late night television, having also hosted “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC from 1982 to 1993.

“Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix. “David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can’t wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We’ll have to see if he keeps the beard.”
