Dave Chappelle has teamed up with Netflix to release three brand new comedy specials set to air on the streaming platform.

The site announced the news today (November 21) on Twitter, writing, “News: 3 new Dave Chappelle comedy specials, coming soon.”

News of the upcoming comedy specials comes shortly after Chappelle made his debut hosting appearance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live during the show’s November 12 episode, where A Tribe Called Quest performed as the evening’s musical guest.

What can we expect from Chappelle’s comedy specials? While details regarding the releases are still forthcoming, Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw revealed on Twitter that two of the specials will showcase material from the comedian’s “personal comedy vault,” while the third one will reportedly revolve around his most recent stand-up tour.

Shaw also referenced the streaming platform’s recent partnership with Chris Rock, who signed a record $40 million deal with Netflix just weeks ago in exchange for two stand-up specials and a successive world tour, according to Deadline.

Netflix — which plays host to several stand-up specials from comedians like Aziz Ansari, John Mulaney and a slew of others — expects to record the first show in 2017. It will also mark Rock’s return to stand-up after an eight year hiatus.

“I’m very excited to be working with Ted and Lisa and all the good people at Netflix,” Rock said via The Hollywood Reporter. “I can’t wait to get back on stage.”
