Dave Chappelle's return to TV is slow but reassuring. The comedian hosted SNL two weeks ago and it was simply the best thing to happen that week. Now Deadline is saying that Chappelle's next three specials will be for Netflix -- apparently the premiere place for comedy specials as of late (sorry Seeso, Comedy Central and HBO). One of the specials is yet to be made but the other two, interestingly, are unreleased and in Chappelle's personal archives. Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentary and Comedy, lauded the comedian's work and noted that they nabbed a golden ticket: “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy, and we are honored he will mark his global return on Netflix.” All of the specials are said to be released simultaneously in 2017.
