Dave Chappelle Announces 'Chappelle's Show' Is Returning to Netflix

Dave Chappelle‘s show is coming back to Netflix!

The 47-year-old comedian revealed that Chappelle’s Show would be returning to the streaming service on Friday (February 12) in a video posted to his Instagram.

The clip shows Dave at a stand up set in Austin, Texas as he discusses his recent COVID-19 diagnosis and shares his thoughts on the attack at the Capitol.

Dave made the announcement at the end of his performance and told the audience, “I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes, it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.”

Netflix removed Dave‘s show in November after the comedian shared that he was unable to receive royalties from the show due to a contract he had signed with Viacom-CBS.

HBO Max is honoring Dave Chappelle‘s request to take down his show, Chappelle’s Show, from the streaming service.
