Fresh off his stint as host of “Saturday Night Live,” Dave Chappelle appears to be finally ready to give the people what they want.

Netflix announced Monday that the company has ordered up three new Chappelle comedy specials.

“Dave Chappelle is a legendary voice in comedy — searing, vital, and now more than ever, essential,” Lisa Nishimura, Netflix’s vice president of original documentary and comedy, said in a statement issued Monday. “Dave’s three new specials promise to be some of the most anticipated events in comedy.”

The shows ― one of which will reportedly be a Netflix original special, and two of which will come from past performances at Austin City Limits Live and the Hollywood Palladium ― will constitute his first TV specials in 12 years, after the comedian largely disappeared from the public eye at the height of his celebrity. The two already-recorded specials will be released simultaneously in 2017.
