James Corden will stay on CBS’ Late Late Show for one more year before bidding adieu. The comedian has been the host of this series since 2015. During his appearance on Late Late Show, he’s created segments with executive producers Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe like “Carpool Karaoke,” “Drop The Mic,” and “Crosswalk The Musical.” He spoke about his departure yesterday on air.
“This will be my last year hosting the show. When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know? And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I think in a year from now, that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there… this has been the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. It has. I’ve never taken this job for granted.”
CBS allegedly offered Corden a three-year renewal, but the host “just felt like it was time.”
The Late Late Show is produced by Fulwell 73, a production company managed by Corden and Winston.
