The first episode will stream on Friday, January 12, and a new episode will be made available each subsequent month in 2018. While it's been two years since Letterman said sayonara to his late night talk show, the 70-year-old said he doesn't watch it now with host Stephen Colbert, or stop by his old stomping grounds for a visit.

He is certain to be asked about Donald Trump, even though the former Democratic president has been extremely reticent about his successor.

Netflix has now officially announced that David Letterman's show, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction", starts streaming on January 12.

The show will consist of six-episodes, and will feature other guests such as Jay-Z, George Clooney, Tina Fey, Howard Stern, and Malala Yousafzai.

The streaming service said the interview will mark Obama's "first television talk show appearance since leaving office".

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction will be a much more intimate affair, with Letterman spending each episode talking one-on-one with personally selected guests that he admires.

The new show will consist of 6 hour-long episodes built around Letterman's star guests.

"You never know when you might learn something, and that's what this is about for me", he says in the just-released teaser. Netflix and the Radical brothers put this show idea together.
