British comedian and talk show host James Corden will leave “The Late Late Show” on CBS television in 2023 after eight years in the role, a spokesman for the network said Thursday.
Corden began hosting the late-night US show in 2015 and generated buzz with his viral “Carpool Karaoke” segments in which he sang along with stars like Adele and Lady Gaga.
The comedian’s contract was due to expire in August, but he agreed to host the show for one more season that will run until spring of next year.
Corden announced the decision during a taping of his Thursday night episode in Los Angeles, the spokesman said.
“Seven years ago, James Corden came to the US and took television by storm, with major creative and comedic shifts that resonated greatly with on-air and online viewers,” said George Cheeks, president and CEO of CBS.
“We wish he could stay longer, but we’re so proud that he’s made CBS his home in America and that this partnership extends another season on ‘The Late Late Show,'” added Cheeks.
Corden, 43, has also received Tony and Grammy awards and appeared in films, including the critically panned musical “Cats.”
CBS is a unit of Paramount Global.
