Letterman to Come Out of Retirement to Host Netflix Talk Show


Former Late Show host David Letterman is coming out of retirement to host a six-episode talk show that will premiere on Netflix in 2018.

The format will be far different than Letterman’s late-night foray, as he’ll conduct a single hourlong interview with one guest per episode. 

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix,” the 69-year-old Letterman said in a statement. “

Here's what I have learned: If you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching; drive safely.”
