Many people probably thought that David Letterman rode off into the sunset after passing off hosting duties to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show in 2015. However, the iconic host is returning to the format with a new show on Netflix, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, which premieres January 12 and will air in a non-bingable, monthly format.

Touting forthcoming guests like JAY-Z, Tina Fey, George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai and Howard Stern, his inaugural guest will be none other than former US President, Barack Obama, who will be doing his first post-Presidency appearance on late night since departing office.

According to Netflix, the “interviews will take place both inside and outside a studio setting. The conversations are intimate, in-depth and far-reaching, with the levity and humor Dave’s fans know and love. Field segments will bring Letterman to locations far and wide, expressing his curiosity and desire to dig deeper on a specific topic related to the iconic guest featured in the episode.”
