Chelsea Handler will host a new talk show on Netflix, it was announced on Thursday.

The comedian’s new talk show will air beginning in 2016, and as part of the deal, Netflix will also stream a Handler standup special and four docu-comedy specials.

Her new show will still feature guest interviews and Handler’s opinionated take on the news, although it is not clear whether the new show will be daily, weekly or a few times a week.

Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement, “The Internet has disrupted many of the conventions of traditional television and together with Chelsea Handler, Netflix is looking forward to reimagining the late night talk show for the on-demand generation, starting with the late night part.”

The comedian’s current late night show on E! will end on August 26 after seven years on the air.
