Twenty-nine years since his last appearance on the show, David Letterman will return to NBC's Late Night.

As the original host, Letterman is often hailed as a pillar of late night comedy. He was on air from 1982 to 1993, only leaving to host CBS Late Night, now hosted by Stephen Colbert. NBC's Late Night is now hosted by Seth Meyers, who excitedly shared the news to his audience in a special announcement.

"The original version of the show 'Late Night' premiered on February 1, 1982. The fortieth anniversary is next Tuesday, and to celebrate, my guest that evening will be the man who started it all---David Letterman."

His reveal was met with cheers and applause from the crowd, as Meyers continued,

“Now that is a show that would make college-age Seth Meyers very happy. Also, current Seth Meyers."

Letterman left CBS Late Night in 2015, leaving him with a career of over thirty years in the talk show scene. Meyers credits the success of his show to Letterman's legacy, once stating,

“This show, ‘Late Night,’ this is David Letterman’s show. If it wasn’t for David Letterman, this show wouldn’t exist. And if it wasn’t for David Letterman, I wouldn’t be here.”

Meyers is excited to interview his predecessor, and for the show to reach such a milestone. The special will air February 1, 12:35am EST, and will be available to stream on Hulu.
