Chelsea Handler Taking Late Night to Netflix

The host of E!’s Chelsea Lately is bringing late night talk to Netflix.

You won’t find women hosting late night talk shows on the major networks, but Chelsea Handler has spent seven years hosting E!’s Chelsea Lately, which will come to an end in August. Now Handler is making the move to Netflix with an as-of-yet-unnamed talk show set to premiere in 2016. The show will feature “an updated format that still encompasses Chelsea’s unfiltered opinions on topical entertainment and cultural issues, as well as her signature guest interviews.” Though this type of show is breaking new ground for streaming media, how many of us already keep up with late night staples like The Daily Show via Hulu or the web? Plus, Handler seems like a great bet for a nontraditional format.

For those of you who don’t want to wait until 2016 there are no Netflix-provided time machines (yet), but Handler will be producing several specials for Netflix between now and then, including a stand-up performance from her current tour (premiering this October) and four docu-comedy specials throughout 2015. So keep your eyes open for Chelsea Handler to debut on Netflix later this year.
