Get ready to laugh! Netflix has just released its teaser trailer for Dave Chapelle's newest special on the streaming platform. On top of all the other exciting content Netflix is introducing this Fall, Chappelle's newest special The Closer is hitting screens October 5.


Chappelle is regarding The Closer as a culmination of his other Netflix specials, covering the same topics that he's discussed in earlier specials.

In the opening lines of the Netflix trailer, Chappelle even revisited something he's frequently discussed in his other stand-up specials.

Comedians have a responsibility to speak recklessly. Sometimes the funniest thing to say is mean. Remember, I'm not saying it to be mean. I'm saying it because it's funny.

Fans were quite ecstatic with the announcement of the sixth chapter of his stand-up comedy series, however Netflix also disclosed that this will be the final special in the series. In their synopsis of the special, Netflix shared

As he closes out his slate of comedy specials, Dave takes the stage to set the record straight-- and get a few things off his chest.

The name of the series itself also alludes to the disappointing potential of this being Chappelle's last run on Netflix.

Chappelle's end to his Netflix reign comes to no surprise after he had pulled his Comedy Central series, Chappelle's Show, off of Netflix. Chappelle slammed ViaCom in 2020 for selling the show's licensing rights to Comedy Central without paying him, allowing streaming platforms like Netflix to circulate his unpaid work.

Chappelle's Show returned to Netflix earlier this year, so fans can surely catch up on their favorite stand-up routines before The Closer makes its debut. Make sure to also prepare for The Closer 's premiere by watching Chappelle's previous specials on Netflix.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
