Netflix Sets Return of David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction

Late night legend David Letterman is returning to Netflix with a new installment of his interview series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction featuring comic John Mulaney.

The special standalone episode of the five-time Emmy Award-nominated series will premiere April 30, 2024.

The episode sees Letterman travel to Mulaney’s hometown of Chicago, where they candidly discuss fatherhood, standup comedy and addiction.

In a sneak peek clip released this afternoon (see below), Letterman accompanies Mulaney on a visit to his Chicago high school, where Mulaney recalls his earliest attempts at humor, including shocking his parents’ friends as a five year-old by reciting Dr Ruth quotes to them.

Letterman taped an interview with Mulaney in front of a live audience at Chicago’s Den Theatre on December 12, 2023.

In 23 episodes across four seasons, My Next Guest has lived up to its name, with Letterman sitting down with quite a few notables, including President Barack Obama, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, JAY-Z, Malala and Billie Eilish.

Letterman’s relationship with Netflix extends beyond his just interview show. Next month he’ll be in Los Angeles to tape a series of shows at the Netflix is a Joke Festival under the rubric “The Gods Of Comedy With David Letterman.”
