Two years after going into retirement (and one retirement beard later), David Letterman is making his way back to the small screen — and in a really new and exciting way.

The longest-running television host in late-night show HISTORY is Netflix bound.

He’ll head a currently untitled, six-episode talk show, which will feature intimate one-on-one interviews between Letterman and his guests.

The show will be a lot different from the classic late-night format, and will instead air pre-recorded, long-form interview segments. No word yet on who the guests might be, but here’s PRAYING for Bill Murray reunion.

We’ll also get to see a very new side to Letterman, according to Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

This sounds like something we can definitely get behind.

Letterman is equally excited, explaining that the opportunity couldn’t have come any sooner.

Retirement has been an interesting time for the former television host, who quipped to Indianapolis Monthly that he had both forgotten how to take his own phone calls and live without a hair and makeup team.

Well, we could not be more pleased that the whole retirement thing wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Can’t wait to spend time with Letterman again come 2018.
