The 39-year-old comedian is joining the streaming service for a series of stand-up specials and her own talk show. Handler is the host of the E! late night talk show Chelsea Lately which she will leave in August after a successful seven-year run.
The comedian is starting her Netflix partnership with a standup comedy special based on her current tour Uganda Be Kidding Me, slated for an October 10 release. The streaming service will then release four “docu-comedy specials” featuring Handler in 2015 which will touch on a variety of issues including politics, pop culture and sports.
She will also host a talk show starting in 2016 that will “encompass Chelsea’s unfiltered opinions on topical entertainment and cultural issues, as well as her signature guest interviews,” according to a statement by Netflix.
