Late Night w/Seth Meyers isn’t going anywhere for the next few years.
The news comes a few days before his contract was set to expire. Meyers of course inherited Late Night from Jimmy Fallon back in 2014, when Fallon moved onto The Tonight Show. And by the time 2025 rolls around, Meyers will have hosted the program for 11 years, the same amount of time that David Letterman hosted the inaugural one for. (Conan O’Brien, however, hosted the show for nearly 16 years from 1993 until 2009).
“Seth is a rare talent who makes America laugh and think every night,” Katie Hockmeyer, executive vp late night programming at NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said in a statement. “His ‘Closer Look’ segments are classic combinations of comedy with commentary. Seth is a brilliant stand-up comedian, interviewer and political commentator. His voice matters more now than ever.”
Meyers and producing partner Mike Shoemaker also signed an overall deal with Universal Studio Group for additional projects. That deal is also set to expire in 2025.
