The Daily Show with Trevor Noah premieres Sept. 28

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Trevor Noah will take over as host of The Daily Show on Sept. 28, Comedy Central announced today.

The network made the announcement with a video, seen above, in which Noah starts to get comfortable at the desk of outgoing host Jon Stewart.

Stewart said in February that he will be leaving The Daily Show, which he has hosted since January 1999, this year. Comedy Central announced last month that Stewart's final episode will air Aug. 6, which means The Daily Show will go on hiatus for seven and a half weeks until Noah's debut.

Comedy Central revealed in March that Noah will succeed Stewart at the desk of The Daily Show. Noah, 31, is a comedian who hails from South Africa. He debuted on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart in 2014 as a "senior international correspondent."
