"Chappelle's Show" is returning to Comedy Central, but that doesn't mean its star is any time soon
The show must go on and so "Chappelle's Show" returns to TV without the star himself Dave Chappelle. The Comedy Central network announced Monday that it will air more episodes of the hit cable series next year using footage shot before Dave abandoned the production in May.
The decision to air the never-before-seen sketches, however, provoked the assumption that Dave won't ever return to complete the third season of the series. "We have to do this because we have no idea what the future foretells," the network's president, Doug Herzog, said. "He hasn't been able to articulate what he would like to do, so we're moving forward."
