Late Night With Seth Meyers Renewed Through 2028

Seth Meyers has got plenty more “A Closer Look”s coming. The SNL star-turned-late-night-talk-show-host has signed on to stay seated behind the desk of NBC’s Late Night through 2028. 

NBCUniversal just announced the show’s renewal, alongside news that Meyers’ production company, Sethmaker Shoemeyers, has also extended its contract to continue creating content across the network’s many platforms.

Meyers has spent the bulk of his career working within 30 Rock. The comedian joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2001, and was promoted to writing supervisor four years later. In 2005, Meyers began serving as SNL’s co-head writer alongside Tina Fey and Andrew Steele. When Fey departed the legendary sketch series in 2006, he took over her spot on “Weekend Update” and served as the show’s sole head writer for the next season.  

Meyers, ever the workhorse, performed his final episode of SNL on February 1, 2014. Less than a month later, on February 24, 2014, he took over Late Night from Jimmy Fallon (with Amy Poehler as his first guest).

Meyers and team celebrated the show’s tenth anniversary with a special episode of Late Night in February.

“Over the last 10 years, Seth has resonated with his audience night after night with a sharp monologue and established segments such as ‘A Closer Look’ and ‘Day Drinking,’” said Katie Hockmeyer, NBCUniversal’s executive VP of Late Night Programming. “We’re so happy to continue this legacy franchise with Seth at the helm and watch him continue to elevate the success of Late Night.”

Expect the show’s renewal to come up tonight as he welcomes fellow late-night host Jimmy Kimmel to Late Night for the first time ever. Kimmel set tongues wagging earlier this year when he suggested that he might step down from Jimmy Kimmel Live! when his current contract ends.
