LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — CBS has renewed its deal with James Corden, paving the way for the comedian to continue hosting The Late Late Show through August 2022.
Corden, who parlayed an acting career into a late-night gig, originally took over as host of CBS’ late-night talk and variety series on March 23, 2015.
According to CBS, 2019 has been a banner year for Corden and The Late Late Show and he earned the most individual Emmy nominations (seven) for any performer, for his work on on the program, as well as “Carpool Karaoke” primetime specials, the “Carpool Karaoke” series for Apple, and The World’s Best, a televised talent competition.
“James Corden has burned his way to the top of American television with a daring, energetic and inventive broadcast that stands out in the late night space,” said David Nevins, Chief Creative Officer for the CBS Corporation. “He is a host and performer whose considerable talents shine on every stage, and he has created a cutting-edge comedy factory with shows that have resonated across multiple platforms. James and his shows are a great source of pride to CBS, and it’s exciting to extend our relationship well into the future.”
The financial terms of Cordon’s deal with CBS were not disclosed.
