CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” has set a return date for all new original episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic.

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.”

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.

“The Daily Show” returned with new episodes Monday, March 23, 2020 and “Full Frontal,“Real Time,” “Last Week Tonight” and “Conan O’Brien” have also announced return dates.
