The news of Comedy Central canceling The Jim Jefferies Show broke a few weeks ago, leaving some audiences puzzled by the decision. Fortunately, this isn’t the end for Jim Jefferies.

It may not have been the most popular late-night talk show, but The Jim Jefferies Show touched on a lot of current issues we’re dealing with today, all of which made the show worth watching. Jefferies himself ventured out to other countries to cover controversial topics like the ongoing political demonstrations in China. They’ve gained attention in the media but the seriousness of the matters has been glossed over. Jefferies sought to change that.

With The Jim Jefferies Show providing such pivotal commentary on important topics, it should be a no brainer for another network or streamer to recruit the comedian now that Comedy Central has canceled his show. Jefferies is reportedly starring in a multi-cam for Universal TV, according to a report by The Wrap, but that doesn’t mean his late-night career is over.

Regardless of what he has planned next, Jefferies will likely be courted for another position as a late-night host. His particular brand of comedy isn’t appropriate for network television but a streaming service could use him. Perhaps Netflix is willing to take a gamble on the comedian.

The streamer has housed a number of talk shows in recent years, making it a suitable home for Jefferies and a new talk show. Neither Jefferies or Netflix has expressed interest in developing a new series, of course, all it takes is a simple phone call.

If there’s skepticism on the streaming service side, Jefferies’ social media presence may persuade them to reconsider. He hasn’t amassed a crazy following as a comedian but Jefferies has about a half a million users following him on Twitter. And that element could play an important role in gathering audiences for a new show.
