Tech: David Letterman will come back to TV as the host of a new Netflix series

David Letterman.

Legendary former late-night host David Letterman has joined Netflix to do an interview series.

Since David Letterman stepped down from his 33-year run as one of the big late-night TV hosts two years ago, he has kept very quiet — outside of the public appearances where he sports his massive grey beard.

But that's about the change.

Netflix announced on Tuesday that Letterman will be joining the streaming giant to host an interview series.

The untitled hour-long show, set to debut next year, will feature “in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor,” according to the release Netflix sent out.

“I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix," Letterman said in the release. "Here's what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely."

Letterman left his CBS show, "The Late Show," in May of 2015. From 1982-1993 he was the host of NBC's "Late Night," where he built a unique comedy style that would turned him into one of the greatest late-night hosts TV has ever seen.

Letterman is just another major notch in Netflix's belt. The streaming giant on Monday landed its first acquisition with the comic book publisher Millarworld.
