The Wrong Mans is to return for a Christmas special later this year.
"We're doing one-hour specials for BBC Two that I think will play at Christmas," Corden told Radio Times.
"It was hard working out whether we do a whole new story, or try and pick up where we left off. I think we've found an outcome that we're all happy with."
"Last year we wrote a character for Dawn French. She's coming back this time, and we've also got Bertie Carvel. He's one of the best actors in the country, so it's brilliant he's agreed to be part of it," Corden added.
The Wrong Mans is centred around council workers Phil and Sam, »
At the end of July, Craig Ferguson told Larry King that he would be willing to do another talk show, but “not right away”.

James Corden may not be a familiar face in the Us yet, but over at Popsugar UK, we've been watching the guy for years. From TV dramas to self-penned comedies, stage appearances, and sci-fi cameos, not to mention hosting gigs and charity skits, you can't go far in the UK without stumbling across this man. The good news is that despite us reaching peak Corden capacity and deciding to send him over to the Us to be the (rumored) new host of The Late Late Show, he's a little more loved than other recent British exports (I'm so sorry about Piers Morgan, but please do feel free to keep him). From his memorable role as Smithy to his well-documented obsession with a particular British boy band (no, not that one), there's a lot to love about Corden. So sit back and allow me to introduce you to the English lad »
This will always be the year that David Letterman announced his retirement, paving the way for a million voices to cry out for a female replacement, the eventual instatement of Stephen Colbert as his successor and Chelsea Handler‘s attempt to make a Netflix talk show work. In the middle of all the keruffle, Craig Ferguson announced his own retirement from his own late night show, putting The Late Late Show into its own (albeit less splashy) flux. It was never quite clear what would become of Ferguson’s after-Letterman slot. Would CBS jettison the talk show format? Would they hire a woman? Would they just use it as a depository for old Letterman reruns? We just didn’t know! Well, now we do – The Late Late Show is going to live on, with a new host that, let’s be honest, most Americans have probably never heard of. And, guess »

There is a possibility that you do not recognize James Corden’s picture or his name. There’s also a possibility that, while looking at his picture, you are feeling a sense of disappointment over the rumor that the UK actor will likely replace Craig Ferguson as the host of The Late Late Show, because once again a network chose a white male to anchor one of these much discussed and coveted late night hosting slots, eschewing the chance to add a bit of diversity to late night.
There are people who will say that CBS didn’t even add “a name” like they did when they picked Stephen Colbert to ...

The Wrap is reporting that English actor, comedian, and writer James Corden will take over The Late Late Show hosting duties in Ferguson’s stead, making for a somewhat surprising (and yet not surprising) choice.
