Netflix renews My Next Guest with David Letterman for season 2


Netflix has renewed My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman. Let’s look at what happened in season one.

With season 2 of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman being freshly announced for 2019, a little recap of the first season is in order.

First, let’s (semi-ironically) give the man an introduction:  After 33 years, David Letterman is the longest-serving late night talk show host in American television history.

Known for observational comedy, acerbic wit, deadpan delivery and occasional self-deprecating humor, Letterman helped bring unconventional comedy further into the mainstream.

Being no stranger to the game, it’s no surprise that David Letterman could get big guests. However, Netflix allows for more in-depth interviews than the standard episode of Late Night would allow.

In case you didn’t know, first season interviews and segments included President Barack Obama, Congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis, actor George Clooney, human rights advocate and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, rapper JAY-Z, music producer Rick Rubin, comedian Tina Fey, shock DJ Howard Stern and paleontologist Christa Sadler.

There’s no word yet who will guest on season 2, but it will be hard to top some of these names in terms of fame level.

However, one thing is likely: Much of the focus will be on his guests rather than just himself. In discussion with Jerry Seinfeld, Letterman even said, “When you’re in show business, it’s so self-consuming and so egomaniacal that you only look at a very small focus, which is yourself.”
