The host has been off television since leaving CBS' "The Late Show" in 2015.

Late night talk show host David Letterman is returning to television next week with an interview of former United States president Barack Obama, streaming giant Netflix announced Friday.

Last August, David Letterman revealed plans to come out of retirement to host a new talk show on Netflix.

Subsequent episodes will be released once a month from February through June, adding up to a total of six 60-minute episodes.

Hov's longtime friend, President Obama, will be the show's first guest when it debuts January 12.

Former President Barack Obama will be Letterman's inaugural guest, and you couldn't ask for a bigger name to debut the series.

Former President Barack Obama will be the first guest on comedian David Letterman's new Netflix show, which is set to launch next week, according to the streaming service. The series is produced by RadicalMedia and WorldWide Pants Incorporated.

"I got exhausted of people saying 'What do you want to do?'" Letterman told Variety in August.

The company, home to shows such as House of Cards and Stranger Things, streams to most countries in the world and has a customer base of about 115.6 million. "In interviews that take place both inside and outside a studio setting, the conversations are intimate, in-depth and far-reaching, with the levity and humor Dave's fans know and love".
