Seth Meyers Is Taking Two-Week Break From Late Night

Studio 8G is going dark for two weeks as Late Night with Seth Meyers takes an extended two-week break starting Monday.

Meyers’ will be the only in-season show to take off next week. (Saturday Night Live airs its season finale this weekend, then goes dark until the fall.) If this feels a bit like déjà vu, it may be because Meyers returned from another extended break just three weeks ago.

While he won’t be producing new episodes of Late Night, Meyers won’t likely be lounging on the beach, as he’s got a plate full of extracurriculars.

In addition to regularly performing standup (he’s set to tape his second comedy special this June), he hosts a podcast with his brother Josh called Family Trips with the Meyers Brothers and another podcast with The Lonely Island called The Lonely Island & Seth Meyers Podcast

He also co-created the Emmy nominated IFC series Documentary Now, and wrote the 2022 childrens book “I’m Not Scared, You’re Scared,” which debuted at No. 3 on the New York Times best sellers list. His production company, Sethmaker Shoemeyers, also produces content for Peacock and other NBC-owned properties, including, most recently, Good One: A Show About Jokes, a documentary following comedian Mike Birbiglia on the road as he builds a new comedy set.

Meyers just signed a new contract extension with NBC that will see him sitting behind the Late Night desk through at least 2028.
