Indo-Canadian YouTuber Lilly Singh is set to kick off Season Two of her show, ‘A Little Late With Lilly Singh’ on Jan. 11 at 1:35 a.m. on NBC and across digital platforms with a new late-night format (Goodbye Host Desk!), according to a press release from an NBC Universal.
A spokesperson for the channel said the upcoming season will feature a fresh mix of sketch comedy, interviews and Singh’s unique take on current events and pop culture. The show will also go behind the scenes, letting her audiences into the creative process and seeing how Singh and her team brings the show to life.
“JANUARY 11TH BABY. #LateWithLilly returns with a fresh new look. New vibe. And more of the authentic me. Which means… expect a lot more tomfoolery and a lot less scripting,” Singh tweeted on Dec. 1.
Singh says she was thrust into a new world that consisted of a lot of learning and less creativity in Season One. For the second round, Singh says she knows the ropes and plans to bring more of her creativity to the table.
The writing staff will include head writer Chelsea Davison, plus staff writers Nimesh Patel, Sabeeh Jameel, Vannessa Jackson, Romen Borsellino, Neuli Handa and Natasha Vaynblat.
The show will be executive produced by showrunner Neil Punsalan (Sketchy Times with Lilly Singh) and Polly Auritt (Faking It), on behalf of Unicorn Island Productions.
Singh will give up a traditional stage for a Los Angeles-based house as the show’s location.
The show’s first season included notable guests such as Mindy Kaling, Charlize Theron, Malala Yousafzai, Jessica Alba, Natalie Portman, Ashley Graham, Snoop Dogg, Terry Crews, Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, John Legend, RuPaul, Adam Devine, Tyra Banks and many more.
Singh is an actress, producer, writer and creator with a global audience of more than 38 million followers across her social media channels.
She is also the New York Times bestselling author of “How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life” and has appeared on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Hollywood & Entertainment list.
In October, Singh released her one-woman comedy variety special “Sketchy Times” on Peacock satirizing how we are all adjusting to the new normal. Singh made the special from home and played more than 64 characters.
She appeared in the Emmy Award-nominated HBO film “Fahrenheit 451,” opposite Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan, as well as the films “Bad Moms” and “Ice Age: Collision Course.”
