Jon Stewart Returning to TV With New Apple TV+ Show!!

Former The Daily Show host Jon Stewart is set to make a big return to television thanks to a multi-year deal struck with Apple. Stewart will inaugurate his new Apple deal by delivering a new show dedicated to current affairs to viewers. For nearly 20 years, Stewart was a go-to political pundit via The Daily Show, which went from just jokes about the state of American politics to a must-see broadcast which turned our increasingly dire political landscape into riveting, legitimate TV. Stewart left The Daily Show in 2015 and has been, by and large, engaged in his advocacy work. He did also gift us the political satire Irresistible starring Steve Carell and Rose Byrne earlier in 2020, which he wrote and directed.

Stewart’s multi-year deal kicks off with a new current affairs show consisting of one-hour episodes focused on a single issue per episode, according to a press release from Apple. The show “will explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work,” and, with multiple seasons of the show already greenlit, “each season of the series will be further explored in a companion podcast to continue the discussion.” In addition to this still-untitled current affairs show, Apple TV+ has also partnered with Stewart and his production company, Busboy Productions, on a first-look deal on projects to be produced and developed for the service.

We’ll keep you posted on Jon Stewart’s new show as it develops.
