James Corden’s late-night talk show time slot will be helmed by comedian Taylor Tomlinson.
Tomlinson, known for her Netflix specials “Look At You” and “Quarter-Life Crisis,” has been tapped to host the CBS talk show series “After Midnight.”
“I got a job,” Tomlinson, 29, wrote Wednesday night on Instagram.
The big reveal was announced on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” as Colbert will serve as executive producer of the series, launching in 2024.
The new show is based on Comedy Central’s “@midnight,” which ran from 2013 to 2017.
“I’ve never had a real job,” Tomlinson told Colbert Wednesday. “No, I’ve been doing stand-up since I was 16, which is not a job.”
“So like this has been a really fun couple of months like I was on TikTok searching like how to nail a job interview — TikTok is Google for children. How do you impress your maybe boss?”
Her new boss, Colbert, responded, “As it turns out, the best part of having one of these jobs is being able to find and hire really good people.”
The show will fill the 12:30 a.m. slot, previously held by “The Late Late Show With James Corden.”
Corden announced his departure from the hit CBS talk show last year and officially wrapped the show in April.
The British actor-turned-broadcaster addressed his departure at the time, reflecting that leaving the show was “the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make.”
“When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination,” Corden shared.
“I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
The “Gavin & Stacey” star revealed he will be shifting his focus onto theater work after feeling a sense of “urgency” to leave the CBS show and the Golden State as a whole.
Despite feeling a mix of emotions, Corden, who officially took over the desk chair at Los Angeles’ Studio 56 in March 2015, believes he’s making the right decision to call time on “The Late Late Show.”
“I’m so certain it’s the right thing to do. I’m so absolutely certain that we did everything we wanted to do and I think it’s really important to have things end,” he added.
Prior to Corden’s presenting stint, actor-comedian Craig Ferguson helmed CBS’s 12:30 a.m. ET slot between 2005 and 2014, following comic Craig Kilborn’s five-year stint starting in 1999.
