NBC’s extremely late at night goes close to the end of A little late with Lilly Singh.
The show, which is broadcast at 1:30, ends with its second season, and the network moves out of the original programming to the castle, which it formerly called a “creative playground.”
The move is a blow to the diversity of late-night TV, as Singh is the only woman to host a show on a TV network, but that’s not surprising given the ratings attached to a show that airs so late. The final episode airs Thursday, June 3rd.
A little late with Lilly Singh launched in September 2019, a replacement for Last call with Carson Daly, and followed Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and Late at night with Seth Meyers in the schedule. However, there was a big gap between seasons one and two due to the pandemic, and Singh returned in January 2021

Singh himself has signed a first viewing agreement with Universal Television Alternative Studio with his Unicorn Island Productions banner. The first-look deal will see her develop unwritten projects with the unwritten division of Universal Studio Group, run by President Toby Gorman, who called her a “creative visionary.”
She is also linked to the star of a Netflix comedy series that she is developing with Kenya Barris. She did not reveal many details about this project, other than to say that it is produced by Barris’ Khalabo Ink Society with writers / executive producers Nell Scovell and Diya Mishra.
“Two years ago, I started on the wild journey of late television. I knew this show was about more than me and I will always be grateful for the opportunity and the support. Today I am writing to you from a similar place with deep gratitude for sharing some news, ”she said. “I want to focus on the ski holiday of projects that my company Unicorn Island Productions is developing, and we say goodbye to A Little Late with Lilly Singh. I have a desire to create longer form content that tells underrepresented stories, which is hard to accomplish on a nightly show. ”
“This is just the beginning; I can not wait to share more with you, but it’s all I can tease for now. I am beyond grateful for your support past, present and future,” she added. Late with Lilly crew, I’m so proud of the progress we’ve made in diversifying late at night. We have given 21 people their debut tonight this season. It’s pretty incredible, and it’s been an honor. ”
Singh is represented by WME and Kyle Kuhns from XX Artists.
