The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will have a new look when it returns on Monday, September 13.
Comedy Central has announced that the award-winning late-night show will be broadcast from a brand new studio at the ViacomCBS headquarters in New York City (after moving from host Trevor Noah’s apartment).
“It drops the Social Distancing moniker while holding onto the intimacy and creative elements that drove the success of the Emmy-nominated hit during the pandemic,” according to Comedy Central. “The new studio will include state-of-the-art production capabilities, allowing the show to create and deliver a greater range of content across all platforms.”
In addition to Noah, the show features correspondents Ronny Chieng, Michael Kosta, Desi Lydic, Dulcé Sloan and Roy Wood Jr. along with contributors Lewis Black and Jordan Klepper.
“Just like the rest of the world we’re excited to leave our homes and get back to working in the same space as other human beings,” Noah said in a statement. “We’re not 100% back to normal yet but we’re gonna make the best of it and enjoy making the show from the heart of Times Square.”
