My Next Guest Needs No Introduction
David Letterman is out of retirement and returning to television with a six-episode, 60-minute Netflix series -- My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. The first episode will premiere on Friday, January 12, 2018 with each subsequent episode streaming monthly from February to June. Dave’s lineup of influential guests includes George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey, Howard Stern and President Barack Obama.
The interviews take place both inside and outside a studio setting, with Letterman traveling to "locations far and wide," according to a Netflix press release. The episodes will take an in-depth look at Letterman's guests.
When Letterman announced the new show, he said in a statement, "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."
He also told the New York Times that the new series "feels like exactly what I want at this stage of my life." Letterman said he plans to keep his outgrown beard.
