James Corden leaving The Late Late Show in 2023

James Corden is preparing to say goodbye to his late-night talk show.

A source tells EW that the host of The Late Late Show With James Corden has extended his agreement for one more season, meaning he will leave in the spring of 2023.

CBS released an early look at Thursday's episode, which features Corden's announcement, where he tells the audience, "This will be my last year hosting the show. When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know? And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there."

Corden, an actor and comedian, took over as host in 2015 and quickly became an internet favorite, delivering more than a few memorable interviews and moments, from the creation of Carpool Karaoke to Crosswalk the Musical and every Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts moment in between. But now, those moments will be numbered.

"Seven years ago, James Corden came to the U.S. and took television by storm, with huge creative and comedic swings that resonated in a big way with viewers on-air and online," President and CEO of CBS George Cheeks said in a statement. "From 'Crosswalk the Musical' to the legendary 'Carpool Karaoke,' and every unique comedy segment he introduced, James has truly reimagined many elements of the late night format. He has also been the consummate network showman, entertaining audiences from his nightly perch at Television City as well as the Tony and Grammy stage.

"In my two years at CBS, I've had the privilege to see James' creative genius up close and experience his valuable partnership with CBS, both as a performer and a producer. We wish he could stay longer, but we are very proud he made CBS his American home and that this partnership will extend one more season on The Late Late Show."
