After playing cultural super hero earlier this month at Saturday Night Live, the glorious return of Dave Chappelle will also come with three comedy specials for Netflix.

The streaming platform announced the big news today (November 21), revealing that three specials are in store for the new year. Details are scarce, however Netflix did note that one of the shows will be a new stand-up special while the other two are from "Chappelle's personal comedy vault" and were filmed from performances at Austin City Limits and the Hollywood Paladium.

The news marks Chappelle's first taped comedy special since 2004 and comes after the comedian wowed viewers during his "SNL" hosting debut, which saw him resurrect signature characters from his "Chappelle Show," deliver a much-needed PSA to President-elect Donald Trump, and introduce the final performance by A Tribe Called Quest.
