Late night talk show host David Letterman is returning to television next week with an interview of former United States president Barack Obama, streaming giant Netflix announced Friday. Two years later in August 2017, it was revealed that he would be launching a new show with the streaming network.

The people he refers to include President Barack Obama, 30 Rock's Tina Fey, ER alum George Clooney, Jay-Z, Howard Stern and Malala Yousafzai, each of whom will appear in one installment of the six-episode first season. Netflix will air one episode a month.




Unlike most Netflix shows, My Next Guest won't drop all at once.

David Letterman's anticipated return date to television is set. It will be his first talk show appearance since leaving the White House in January of previous year. Obama's episode - which marks the former Commander in Chief's first talk-show appearance since leaving office - will be released on January 12; subsequent episodes will follow monthly. Interviews will take place both inside and outside a studio setting. He ended a storied 33-year run in late-night TV that began with his 1982-1993 residency on NBC's "Late Night". In addition, Letterman will participate in field segments to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the guest featured in the episode.
