Seth Meyers has renewed his deal with NBCUniversal, cementing him as the host of “Late Night” through 2028.

The extension comes months after the renowned writer and comedian hit his 10-year anniversary as host; “Late Night With Seth Meyers” first launched in February 2014.

Meyers’ production company, Sethmaker Shoemeyers, has also extended its deal with Universal Studio Group to produce content across NBCUniversal platforms. The banner previously produced “A.P. Bio” for NBC and “The Amber Ruffin Show” for Peacock.

“Over the last 10 years, Seth has resonated with his audience night after night with a sharp monologue and established segments such as ‘A Closer Look’ and ‘Day Drinking,’” said Katie Hockmeyer, executive vice president of late night programming at NBCUniversal Entertainment. “We’re so happy to continue this legacy franchise with Seth at the helm and watch him continue to elevate the success of ‘Late Night.’”

“Late Night With Seth Meyers” is executive produced by Lorne Michaels, with Mike Shoemaker as producer. Universal Television is the studio. Throughout its run, the series and its digital offshoot, “Corrections,” have earned two Critics Choice Awards, seven Writers Guild of America Award nominations and 11 Emmy nominations.

Before hosting “Late Night,” Meyers was best known for his tenure on “Saturday Night Live,” where he was a cast member from 2001 until 2014. In 2006, he was promoted to head writer and anchor of “Weekend Update.” Meyers’ other prominent credits include keynoting the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, hosting the Emmys in 2014 and the Golden Globes in 2018, and producing the films “Hot Rod” and “MacGruber.” In 2018, he returned to “Saturday Night Live” to host an episode.
