Good news... and bad news

James Corden has chauffeured everyone from Michelle Obama to Adele to Stevie Wonder as part of his chat show’s unexpectedly successful Carpool Karaoke segment. What started as a one-off with Mariah Carey in the passenger seat in March 2015 soon became the most popular element of The Late Late Show… and now Carpool Karaoke is getting its very own standalone show.

Hurrah!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the spin-off will air exclusively for Apple Music customers, with the first series consisting of 16 episodes, each of which will stream weekly.

However it’ll sadly be a different driver at the wheel, as James Cordon won’t be partaking. Boooo. In good news for him though, he has reportedly signed on as executive producer.

A premiere date for the show has yet to be announced, but it’s expected to be soon. Apple Music will set you back €9.99 a month though, so we’d suggest waiting for an air date to sign up, as you’ll be able to avail of the three-month free trial.

This is not the first time that a chat show segment has gone on to spawn its own show, of course. Lip Sync Battle started as a slot of the Jimmy Fallon Show and is now an (Emmy-nominated!) show in its own right.

Hopefully Carpool Karaoke gets the same success.
