James Corden is looking to stay at the helm of The Late Late Show. 

The host and executive producer of The Late Late Show is in negotiations on a new multi-year deal with CBS. According to sources, the two sides have been in talks for quite some time. Variety reports that final terms were still being discussed so there’s no certainty that the deal will close.

Corden first signed with the network back in 2014 taking over as host replacing Craig Ferguson. CBS took a chance with Corden, back then a largely unknown personality from the UK. But that’s history — the acclaimed show is officially a success with Corden at the helm, earning Emmy nominations for an outstanding talk-variety show for the past three years.

Corden’s deal expires at the end of the 2019-20 season. CBS would not comment.
