Roy Wood Jr., a longtime contributor to Comedy Central‘s “Daily Show,” will not return to the late-night program when it returns to production, the latest wrinkle to develop at the long-running show as executives continue to hunt for a successor to Trevor Noah.

“I can’t come up with Plan B is while still working with Plan A,” the comedian told NPR, noting he doesn’t want to continue as one of the show’s cadre of correspondents while someone else is being considered for the top role. “The job of correspondent…it’s not really one where you can juggle multiple things. [And] I think eight years is a good run,” he said.
“Roy Wood Jr is a comedic genius and beloved teammate.  His insights and hilarity helped us make sense of the 2016 election, the pandemic, and countless hours of Fox News,” Comedy Central said in a statement. “We thank him for his time with us and can’t wait to see what he does next.”
