Another Hannah Gadsby special is coming to Netflix.

The news was confirmed Monday by the 41-year-old Australian stand-up comic who is currently touring her show Douglas around the world.

“I’m so excited to announce today that Douglas will be released on Netflix in 2020,” she said. “I’m really enjoying touring with the live performance, but there will be places in the world that I won’t be able to visit, so it’s wonderful that Netflix will bring the show to every corner of the globe.”

Gadsby’s previous special on the streaming giant, Nanette, earned critical acclaim. Gadsby told Variety, Nanette’s her own beast. I’ve pretty much just set up camp in Nanette’s shadow and this is where I live now. The thing about Nanette is, I’ve said what I had to say in that moment, so that’s what I’ve done with Douglas and I’m just speaking to where I am in the moment, and a lot of where I’m at, at the moment is in the wake of Nanette.”

The hour-long forthcoming special is named after Gadsby’s beloved dog. Douglas will debut on Netflix in 2020.
