Last Comic Standing will reportedly return for an eighth season next year after three years on hiatus, with the new edition executive produced Wanda Sykes through her new deal with Universal Television's alternative studio. Sykes will work with Page Hurwitz through their Push It Productions production company.
Last Comic Standing's new host and the season's premiere date have yet to be announced. Last Comic Standing has always aired during the summer except for its third edition, which debuted in Fall 2004.
The show's new revival will represent the third time it has been resurrected.
