The shock announcement arrived through a 10-minute performance titled Redemption Track posted to Chappelle’s Instagram account late Thursday night time. The clip closes with news that the sketch comedy will return to Netflix commencing right now.
Netflix commenced airing Chappelle’s Show on November 1st but pulled it on November 24th soon after the comic complained that Comedy Central’s proprietor ViacomCBS certified the exhibit with no his approval. “I identified as them and I advised them that this would make me really feel lousy.

And I acquired my license back again, and I acquired my exhibit again, and they paid me hundreds of thousands of bucks. Thank you pretty a lot.”

“Finally soon after all of these years I can finally say to Comedy Central, ‘it’s been a enjoyment doing business enterprise with you,’” mentioned Chappelle in closing.
