After being off the air for 5 years, one of the most beloved hosts on TV Jon Stewart is set to return with a new show on Apple TV + next year. The former Daily Show Host has signed a multi season deal to host a current events talk show series.
This is a major move for Jon and for Apple TV + who are in the process of producing as much can’t miss content with A list stars as they can in order to compete with HBO Max, Disney + and of Netflix.
Jon Stewart has a loyal fan base of millions so this will no doubt be a major boost for the platform. Since his departure from The Daily Show Jon Stewart has broken the internet when he appeared on his friend and former coworker Stephen Colbert’s late night talk show.
He also forced congress and America to pay attention and take action about the 9/11 First Responder’s bill after spending years protesting and fighting for their rights. This fight culminated in a speech to congress that instantly went viral and actually got congress to pass the bill which had been in limbo for over 15 years.
Stewart said in a recent interview that his new show “will explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work.”
Looks like we can expect more thought provoking and wildly entertaining work from Jon Stewart! Not all is bad in 2020!
