CBS and James Corden have come to terms on a contract extension that will keep Corden with CBS thru 2022. The Hollywood Reporter states that Corden’s current deal secured the host through the end of the next season.
Corden has become a late night darling. He has had multiple viral hits with his Carpool Karaoke and Drop The Mic segments.
“James Corden has burned his way to the top of American television with a daring, energetic and inventive broadcast that stands out in the late night space,” said David Nevins, chief creative officer at CBS Corp. “He is a host and performer whose considerable talents shine on every stage, and he has created a cutting-edge comedy factory with shows that have resonated across multiple platforms. James and his shows are a great source of pride to CBS, and it’s exciting to extend our relationship well into the future.”
This deal extension should see a nice pay raise for Corden. According to Variety, Corden started at CBS with a salary in the $4-5 Million range.
