Will there be a Season 2?

As of right now, Netflix has yet to confirm whether there’ll be another season of My Next Guest With David Letterman. Letterman has not announced any other project which would prevent and looking at the hosts past, it’s likely he’ll stick around for the long haul.

As for a release date for a second season, it’s likely that it’d premiere in 2019 although you could see the series switch formats or adding a Christmas special.
