Netflix has signed 'The Daily Show''s Hasan Minhaj for his own weekly talk show. The as-yet-untitled series will let the comedian "explore the modern cultural and political landscapes with depth and sincerity."

Minhaj has worked for Netflix before: his stand-up comedy special 'Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King' aired on the streaming service. He also performed at the 2017 White House Correspondents' Association Dinner – the annual event in which comedians roast the current president (though President Trump did not attend the event).

Minhaj will stop working for 'The Daily Show' this summer.

"I'm thrilled to be joining the Netflix family as the country braces for another election season – and like you, I can't wait to find out who Putin picks this time," he said in a statement.

Netflix has commissioned 32 episodes of the talk show. It also recently signed another 'The Daily Show' correspondent, Michelle Wolf, for a late-night series. At this rate, host Trevor Noah will be wondering if he has any staff left.
