Netflix teases Dave Chappelle's return


Dave Chappelle returned to TV with thunderous applause, as the stand-up comedian rocked his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live.

It has been over 10 years since the end of Chappelle's Show and finally, we will be getting new comedy for Dave Chappelle.


When Netflix triumphantly announced that Dave Chappelle had signed on to premiere three comedy specials on the streaming service, people were elated (including this writer). Though business details like these no longer matter as much, per se, as both it and The Age of Spin - filmed by Chappelle and Lathan at The Palladium in Los Angeles in March 2016 - will be in everybody's Netflix queue soon. This is an exciting time as it follows up with previous rumors of him filming specials in the last couple years. The trio of comical shows cost Netflix $60 Million USD to get Chappelle on board. He's now touring in preparation for his third Netflix special, whose date has yet to be announced. We're curious to see how those subjects come together.

Netflix VP of Original Documentary and Comedy, Lisa Nishimura, released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter emphasizing how excited the company was to be exclusively broadcasting these new specials by Dave Chappelle when the announcement about the deal was made in November. The first of these, Amy Schumer's The Leather Special, is set to drop in early March.
