The host of “The Late Late Show” is set to clear his seat in 2023, concluding what will then be an eight-season period.
“Seven years ago, James Corden came to the United States and took television by storm, with huge creative and comedic twists that resonated with viewers both on air and on the Internet,” said CBS President and CEO George Chicks. Statement submitted to CNN.
Corden’s show was home to popular segments such as “Crosswalk the Musical” and “Carpool Karaoke,” which drew millions of views on YouTube and led conversations throughout the show, despite its slow time.
Corden is expected to speak about his decision to extend his contract for another season in his monologue Thursday night.
“During my two years at CBS, I have had the privilege of seeing James’ creative genius up close and experiencing his valuable partnership with CBS, both as an actor and producer,” Cheeks added. “We wish he could stay longer, but we’re so proud that he’s made CBS his home in America and that this partnership will span another season on The Late Late Show.”
Corden has hosted the show since 2015.
