Sarah Silverman is returning to late-night television. 

Multiple outlets confirm that the comedian is set to star in a stand-up comedy special and has landed a pilot for a late-night series. 

The special will mark Silverman’s return to HBO since 2013’s We Are Miracles. Her most recent special, the Emmy-nominated A Speck of Dust, streamed on Netflix, rather than the premium cabler. 

As to the late-night show in the works, Silverman said Monday in a statement that the show will feature her “weighing in on the mishigas of the week and taking live video calls.”

“I’m as passionate talking about my face-washing routine as I am talking about why billionaires cost us money,” she added. “Nothing’s off the table and nothing’s too high- or lowbrow for me. I mean — look at my face — I’m literally all brow.”

HBO Programming Executive VP Nina Rosenstein said, “Sarah is truly a comedic force of nature, and we’re so happy to have her back on HBO.”
