‘The Late Show’ sets return date
The show will return Monday, March 30, 2020, at its normal timeslot.
That night’s show will air on the date a planned hiatus, scheduled before the coronavirus outbreak, was slated to end.
“The Late Show,” like most other late night talk shows, ended up stopping production on new episodes about a week before that break.
The show will not, however, originate from its home at the Ed Sullivan Theater, which has been commandeered as the temporary home of “CBS This Morning.”
Hey everybody! I’m staying at home and so is everybody who works for me, but thanks to some amazing work by my staff and the CBS broadcasting folks, we will be back on Monday with new Late Shows. Until then-Stay Strong!

Instead, Colbert is expected to host from home with the production team working remotely as well. Guests will join via video calling.
Colbert and many of his other late night counterparts have been posting video clips or airing repeat episodes with original content added in.
