The 57-year-old comedian will host an hour-long, current affairs series that will explore topics of national interest on Apple TV+, it was announced on Tuesday (27 October).
Each season of the show will have a companion podcast to “continue the discussion”, Apple TV+ said.
As well as Stewart serving as an executive producer, Apple also has a deal with his production company that gives it first shot at other projects.
The series is expected to debut in 2021, meaning that if Stewart wants to weigh in on a presidential race, as he relished doing on his long-running Comedy Central show, he'll have to wait until the 2024 contest.
Stewart, writer and director of the recent film Irresistible with Steve Carell and Rose Byrne, is also an executive producer for CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The Daily Show was presented by Stewart from 1999 to 2015, and is now hosted by Trevor Noah.
