David Letterman Leaving Retired Life for Netflix Talk Show!

David Letterman is officially returning to television!

Two years after exiting his CBS talk show, the 70-year-old entertainer has signed on for an untitled six-episode Netflix series which will feature interviews and other topics. Each episode will be pre-recorded.

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. 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,” David said in a statement.

“Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together,” Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos added. “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.”
