NBC announced today that Seth Meyers has signed on to host Late Night with Seth Meyers for another four seasons, taking it to at least 2025. The deal follows up the previous five-year pact for Meyers and the show, which is in its fourth iteration after previously being hosted by David Letterman, Conan O'Brien, and Jimmy Fallon.

Meyers, who used to be the head writer for Saturday Night Live, has done an admirable job of making Late Night his own. His 'A Closer Look' segments have become notably popular in recent years, also finding a sizeable audience on the show's YouTube channel.

Today's deal will bring Late Night with Seth Meyers up to a total of 11 years on the air. Depending on exactly how long it stays on the air, the show could surpass the length of Letterman's 11-year run, though it still has a way to go before it catches up to O'Brien, whose time on Late Night spanned 16 years.
