After a 17-year hiatus, Arsenio Hall will return to late-night television.

Yes, you heard correctly … the Arsenio Hall Show returns and will debut on Sept. 9 later this year on DC50.

On Tuesday night, a group of movers and shakers from all media gathered in Northwest D.C. to welcome Hall back to late nights.

After focusing on raising his son for nearly two decades, Hall is eager to get back to Late Nights to give us that “little something” that’s been missing.

When he took the stage to answer questions, you could sense his excitement.

He reminisced about the then and now — and mentioned interviewing Robin Thicke when the R&B star was a kid. He also talked about Bill Clinton and the saxaphone, and thought Rihanna would make a good opening night guest.

He also gushed about all the support from his industry friends he has received since he announced his comeback.

Set your calendars for Sept. 9!
