After five years off-air, Jon Stewart will have his own show again as he will be hosting a current-affairs series for Apple TV+, reports The New York Times.

The former anchor of “The Daily Show” will be exploring “topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work,” Apple said. The series will span multiple seasons, featuring hour-long episodes, each dedicated to a single topic.

However, no format was given.

Since leaving The Daily Show” in 2015, Stewart has returned on and off with appearances on Stephen Colbert’s CBS late-night show. Stewart is a producer of that series.

The new show will be produced by Stewart’s Busboy Productions and Richard Plepler’s Eden Productions. Stewart’s longtime manager, James Dixon, will also be a producer of the series.
