Taylor Tomlinson’s ‘After Midnight’ Renewed for Season 2 at CBS

“After Midnight,” the late night show hosted by comedian Taylor Tomlinson, has been renewed for its second season at CBS.

The series is a revival of “@Midnight,” which was hosted by Chris Hardwick on Comedy Central from 2013 to 2017. Like its predecessor, Tomlinson’s show features celebrity guests as they compete in pop culture and internet trivia games. “After Midnight” premiered in January and airs directly after “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” with Colbert serving as an executive producer.

Tomlinson recently spoke to Variety about vying for a Season 2 renewal — and what that would mean for the TV landscape, given that she’s currently the only female host in late night TV.

“It feels like pressure when people ask me about it,” she said. “Should I be more worried about that? I’m more worried about how we get a second season so that this crew of people gets to keep working together. I’m not coming to work going, ‘You’re the one. You’re the woman, so you better make this work.’”

“I don’t want to be dismissive of being the only woman in late night. I would love to see a traditional talk show helmed by a woman. I would love to see more shows like ours,” she continued. “There are lots of different ways to do this, a lot of different perspectives, and they aren’t being represented currently.”

CBS Studios produces “After Midnight” with Colbert’s Spartina Industries and Funny Or Die. Along with Colbert, executive producers include Evelyn McGee Colbert, Carrie Byalick, James Dixon, Tom Purcell, Whitney Hodack, Mike Farah, Joe Farrell, Henry R. Muñoz, Jason U. Nadler, Jack Martin and Eric Pierce.

Deadline was first to report the news.
