Trevor Noah announced last month that he would be leaving ‘The Daily Show,” after hosting it for seven years. Noah will host his last episode of the Comedy Central program on December 8th. Executives at the network are now considering host rotation for the show.

“The Daily Show’ will go on a short hiatus after the comedian’s exit before returning in January next year. Initially, the network executives amused the idea of filling Trevor Noah’s seat with Roy Wood Jr., who has been a correspondent on the program since 2015. However, it seems much more complicated than that.

Variety reports, the network is considering using a rotating cast of hosts on “The Daily Show” when it returns from its break. Comedy Central is exploring a number of option that were presented to them, and it is unclear whether its plans are finalized at this time.

The 38-year-old comedian said he wants to do everything after “The Daily Show’ departure. “I’m so excited to do everything. I didn’t get to travel as much, doing stand up around the world. I’m excited to — I used to go to a country and I would be there for weeks on end,” Noah stated during his interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Noah is the third host of ‘The Daily Show’, succeeding Craig Kilborn and Jon Stewart, whom Noah replaced in 2015. The Comedy Central program returns on January 17th, and it’s anyone’s guess who the host will be.
