Apple TV+ has today confirmed that Jon Stewart will come back to our screens on September 30, when the first season of The Problem With Jon Stewart makes its debut.

A new episode of the show will arrive every other week, while a podcast will also premiere on September 30, according to a press release (opens in new tab).

"The Problem With Jon Stewart" is a multiple-season, single-issue series, taking a deep dive on the issues affecting us most. In this new Apple Original series, Stewart will be in conversation with the people who are impacted by the issue — as well as those who have a hand in creating the impact. Together, they will discuss a more productive path towards action. The companion series podcast will extend the conversation from each episode, featuring staff members from across the show who will bring us interviews with activists in the space, the facts on the issue, and yes, lots of jokes.

Viewers will of course need an Apple TV+ subscription to enjoy the new show. That will cost $4.99 per month after any free trial that is available at the time. The streaming service is also available as part of the popular Apple One subscription bundle, too.
