Jon Stewart’s quiet retirement as a gentleman farmer didn’t last long.
Just three months after leaving “The Daily Show,” the comedian and commentator has signed a four year contract with HBO to produce short, online videos and other content – just in time to poke fun at, or prompt serious thinking about, the 2016 election season in the U.S.
“Appearing on television 22 minutes a night clearly broke me,” Stewart said a statement. “I’m pretty sure I can produce a few minutes of content every now and again.”
Unlike most HBO content, viewers won’t need to have a cable TV subscription to see Stewart’s new videos, but you’ll still have to pay for the HBO Now app for tablets, smartphones, and other devices, which may cost up to $14.99 per month. The new content will also stream on HBO Go.
HBO hasn’t announced when Stewart’s work will debut.
