Late-night host and “Saturday Night Live” veteran Seth Meyers has extended his contract with NBC Entertainment through February 2021.
Meyers began his tenure at “Late Night” in February 2014 and since his arrival the show has remained a vital component of NBC’s late-night dominance.
“I can’t thank NBC enough for continuing to support our show and this more than makes up for my disappointment in not getting cast in ‘The Wiz,’” said Meyers.
“As a writer, performer and host, Seth has a rich history at NBC and we are thrilled that he’ll be at the helm of ‘Late Night’ for many more years,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “His knowledge of both current events and pop culture is unparalleled and he brings that expertise to ‘Late Night’ every night. The show couldn’t be in better hands.”
