E!’s favorite late night host, Chelsea Handler, is in final negotiations with Netflix for a new show.

Last week, rumours began circulating about Handler replacing Craig Ferguson on the ‘Late Late Show’ after an image of the ‘Uganda be Kidding me Author’ was posted to Instagram holding documents with the CBS logo.

Both Handler and the network denied those rumours, with fans of the comedian wondering where she planned on going after her contract with E!’s ‘Chelsea Lately’ ended.

According to The New York Post, it seems like she’s landed at Netflix, with one source saying “Handler has a deal with Netflix, but the format is to be decided.”

While Handler was speaking with Howard Stern on his popular satellite radio show, she criticized E! and their lack of direction, expressing interest in leaving the network and suggested Netflix might be a good fit for her.

Either a deal was already on the table (although this was denied by Netflix at the time) or the online streaming service heard her call… but ultimately Handler’s fans can take a deep breath knowing that her irreverent and intelligent brand of humour will still have a place to call home when ‘Chelsea Lately’ and ‘After Lately’ end in 2015.
