Coming to Netflix: The former star of CBS' Late Show.

David Letterman, the former host of CBS' (CBS) The Late Show, is set to make his return to television by way of a new talk show on Netflix (NFLX) , according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The untitled, six-episode series will premiere in 2018 and mark Letterman's first solo gig since retiring from the Late Show two years ago.

Each show will be pre-recorded and consist of Letterman engaging in long form discussions with a single guest, and feature the comedian touching on several topics on his own.

"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," Letterman said.
