Netflix has confirmed David Letterman's new show will make its debut on January 12.

Titled My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman, it marks the star host's return to the screen in a six-episode series released monthly.

"I had a show for a long time, and then I didn't have a show for a long time," he said.

"I can't tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house. Wow."

Each chapter will last an hour and focus around Letterman's guest, starting with former US president Barack Obama, who will kick things off.

Other guests include George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Tina Fey, Jay-Z and Howard Stern.

“You never know when you might learn something,” he said.

“And that’s what this is about for me. These are people that I admire.”
