James Corden is putting a condo on his wrist and he’s cashing out of “The Late Late Show.”
The Brit has extended his contract with CBS for one year and will depart the late-night talk show ahead of summer 2023 after an eight-and-a-half-year run.
He told Deadline:
It’s been it’s a really hard decision to leave because I’m so immensely proud of the show.
I’m thrilled to be extending [for a year].
I always thought I’d do it for five years and then leave and then I stayed on.
I’ve really been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure.
I’ll miss the adrenaline of thinking ‘Next week I’m going to jump out of a plane with Tom Cruise or in two weeks’ time, we’re going to drive around the White House in a car with Michelle Obama or sing Penny Lane with Paul McCartney driving down Penny Lane.
All of my greatest ambitions for what it what [the show] could be, it’s absolutely surpassed all of them.
My intention is to try and go out in exactly the same way we came in, which is just going out with a bang.
One thing is for certain, James Corden has given us some classic moments on the show with his “Carpool Karaoke” segment.
And we can forget his rap battle with Method Man!
Will you be sad to see James leave the show?
