Don’t even think about counting Larry Wilmore out of the comedy game just yet.
On Thursday, The Nightly Show will air its final segment after a year and a half run on air, following the show’s cancellation by Comedy Central earlier in the week. And along with the show goes the popular host, Wilmore.
Though, on Tuesday, when Vanity Fair asked the late night comedian how he would feel if other late shows incorporated his special “formula” into their own programs, Wilmore gave fans a glimmer of hope that he wasn’t quite finished with TV.
“No! Don’t do what I did!” he said. “A brother might be coming back, you know? You never know!”
So, onto the question everyone is wondering – will fans get to see Wilmore on their television screen again in the near future?
“Definitely,” the 54-year-old host said. “I’ll take some time to think of what my next moves are; I started in scripted, then half-hour, and that type of stuff. I love storytelling and I’ll probably be looking to get back into that somewhat. And who knows? Maybe I’ll wind up somewhere else doing something similar.”
“That’d be great; I’d love to do that,” he added. “That’d be fun.”
The Nightly Show‘s final segment airs Thursday at 11:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
