The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be taking a hiatus for the entire summer, returning in September with changes and surprises to its studio.
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be taking a long summer hiatus. The Daily Show has been on Comedy Central since 1996 having three hosts over the course of its run. The most notable term has been Jon Stewart, who took over from Craig Kilborn in January 1999 and reinvented the talk show as a news satire and focusing on political events, winning a record 11 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Variety Talk Series over his 16-year tenure. Noah took over hosting duties after Stewart left in August 2015, continuing the tradition of the show and has since made it his own style.
Per Deadline, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is now reported to be taking a longer break for the summer, beginning this upcoming Friday on June 18 and returning on September 13. Noah, like many late-night talk show hosts, has transitioned to hosting the show at his residence since the Covid-19 pandemic. Since the lift of advisories and the announcement of returning to studio productions, talk shows have been steadily moving back to their studios, and Noah has teased that there will be surprises when production of The Daily Show returns back to its studio in New York City, as well as its new look. Noah’s full statement can be read below:
As for going back to the studio, I have a few surprises as to what that will look like. I’m working on a few things with the team, and we’re really excited because I want it to be intentional. People always say, ‘When are you going back?’ I’m never going back, I’m only moving forward.’
The show continues to have its broad support among fans with many viewers continuing to discover it through its YouTube channel and The Daily Social Distancing Show. One of the main reasons for its success is due to Noah’s original voice and stance on various topics, including police brutality and racial injustice this past year. It will be interesting to see what changes The Daily Show with Trevor Noah makes when it returns to its original studio in September.
