Jon Stewart, the longtime star of “The Daily Show”, embarks on a new career in the streaming world with a deal to host a current affairs show on the Apple imprint Apple TV +.

The multi-season series on Apple TV + will bring the comedian back to TV regularly for the first time since he ended his Emmy-winning run as host of “The Daily Show” in 2015.

The yet-to-be-titled show will reportedly find Stewart exploring topics related to national headlines and his advocacy work and each season will be accompanied by a companion podcast.

The series is expected to debut in 2021 and it will be executively produced by Stewart himself along with Richard Plepler and his longtime manager James Dixon. The Cupertino based company has also partnered with Stewart’s production company “Busboy Productions” will have the rights to launch other  Apple TV projects.

Since leaving “The Daily Show,” Stewart has appeared occasionally on talk shows and made two films, Rosewater and a political comedy film called “Irresistible” that he wrote and directed.

Over the past 16 years, Stewart has redefined political satire in American culture from his perch atop the anchor chair on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” Stewart and “The Daily Show” received a collective 56 Emmy Award nominations and won 20 times.

He also paved the way for several well-known American faces in the world of political comedy, including John Oliver and Stephen Colbert, both of whom appeared on The Daily Show. With his current affairs program at Apple, Stuart is the latest presenter to develop a series for a streaming platform. Chelsea Handler and David Letterman, among others, preceded him with a show on Netflix.
