The “most likely plan” is for Letterman to retire in May 2015, and Stephen Colbert to take over in September
According to late-night expert Bill Carter, “There will need to be a hiatus between the two – most likely for several months – as Mr. Colbert installs a new set to the theater and his staff moves in to old Letterman offices. The most likely plan is a farewell to Mr. Letterman at the end of May, with a September premiere for Mr. Colbert.” PLUS: Why Colbert would never move to L.A.
