Jon Stewart is heading back to TV with a new Apple TV Plus show, The Problem with Jon Stewart, which will debut this fall, Apple announced on Wednesday.

“‘The Problem with Jon Stewart’ is a multiple season, one-hour, single-issue series which will explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work,” Apple said in a press release. “Each season of the series will be further explored in a companion podcast to continue the discussion.” Apple didn’t specify how many episodes will be included in each season or how many seasons the show will run.

The iPhone maker says this is the first project of a multiyear partnership with the popular political commentator, so it sounds like we could see more shows with Stewart’s involvement on Apple TV Plus in the future. Apple has also signed a first-look deal with Stewart and his production company.

Apple first announced the show was in development last October. The Problem with Jon Stewart marks Stewart’s return to TV, following the end of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which wrapped in 2015.
