CBS is looking to bring back Comedy Central’s raucous late night game show @Midnight to replace their The Late, Late Show after host James Corden leaves the talk show later this spring.

Deadline is reporting that the network is working with Funny Or Die, the producers of the original Comedy Central series, to relaunch it in the 1:30am time slot. Stephen Colbert would also be taking an executive producer credit on the show with it following his The Late Show at 11:30.

Running from 2013 to 2017, @Midnight featured three comedians in a faux gameshow setting making rapid fire jokes about the news and internet culture. Original @Midnight host Chris Hardwick is reportedly not expected to have any involvement in the rebooted show.

CBS had no comment on the Deadline report.
