Back in early April, when all the talk show hosts started broadcasting from home, there was one person that was noticeably absent from the lineup and still airing reruns. James Corden. Aside from hosting a televised prime time benefit in late March, he was seemingly staying away from broadcasting anything new.
Finally, by mid-April, The Late Late Show had returned, with Corden broadcasting episodes from his garage and conducting interviews via Zoom. What may have contributed to his late return may have been some issues he was experiencing with anxiety. He talked about it during the primetime special on March 30th.
“You feel so out of control. It feels so beyond our comprehension, all of it, that I’ve found I get sort of overwhelmed with sadness in it all.”
Now, he has taken to twitter to announce that he’s taking some time off after getting eye surgery and needing time to recover.
Hey all. I had to have minor surgery on my eye yesterday. I am doing well and recovering, but won’t be able to film new episodes for a few nights. Thank you to everyone who has been watching the Late Late Shows from my garage. I’ll be back soon. Stay safe and well everybody. x

“I am doing well and recovering,” Cordon wrote, “but won’t be able to film new episodes for a few nights. Thank you to everyone who has been watching the Late Late Shows from my garage.“
Corden didn’t mention how long of a break he would be taking, but we imagine he should be back filming new episodes from his garage relatively soon.
