James Corden extends CBS contract through 2022

James Corden, winner of seven Emmy Awards and nominated for another seven this year, has extended his contract with CBS through 2022.

Corden took over The Late Late Show in 2016.

“James Corden has burned his way to the top of American television with a daring, energetic and inventive broadcast that stands out in the late night space,” said David Nevins, Chief Creative Officer for the CBS Corporation. “He is a host and performer whose considerable talents shine on every stage, and he has created a cutting-edge comedy factory with shows that have resonated across multiple platforms. James and his shows are a great source of pride to CBS, and it’s exciting to extend our relationship well into the future.”

Corden’s contract was due to expire next August, but he’ll stick around at least two years after that. In addition to his hosting of The Late Late Show, Corden’s CBS duties have included hosting World’s Best, and twice each hosting the Grammys and the Tonys. He’s also spun off two Late Late Show segments into series on other platforms — Carpool Karaoke for Apple TV, and Drop the Mic for TBS.
