Six years after quitting the satirical “daily show,” Jon Stewart will return to television next month with a new venture to scrutinize the current situation.

Apple said Monday that “The Problem With Jon Stewart” was launched on the Apple TV + streaming platform on September 30th, seeing Stewart delve into a single important issue in the country, Reuters reports.

In a statement, Apple will discuss in each of the hour’s episodes with people affected by a particular topic, “concrete steps that could lead to progress in the solution.”

The show is displayed biweekly and comes with a weekly podcast of the same name.

Apple said it would include “a lot of jokes.”

Stewart’s irreverent political and media satire brands have made him a television lover with far more than two to three million viewers each night at Comedy Central’s Daily Show. The “Daily Show” won 20 Emmy Awards during his 16-year term as a host.

Stewart resigned in 2015 and is rarely publicly available, including defending injured veterans and medical benefits for the first responders who became ill after the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, DC. I didn’t get it.

Last year he wrote and directed a political comedy film called “Irresistible” starring Steve Carell.
