The veteran presenter announced his retirement in 2015, after 33 years presenting his late night television show.
David Letterman is coming out of retirement with a new talk show, two years after ending his 33-year-long stint at CBS.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 70-year-old presenter has signed a new deal with Netflix, to host a six-episode series in 2018.
“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix,” Letterman said in a statement on Tuesday.
“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.”
Letterman announced plans to step down from The Late Show in 2014 and signed off in 2015, after 33 years holding a late night spot first on NBC and then on CBS.
Nearly 14 million viewers tuned in to see his farewell in the US, with appearances from former US presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and the then president Barack Obama all repeating the words: “Our long, national nightmare is over”.
