Carpool Karaoke is possibly Apple’s most successful TV show yet. It is an in-house production of the company and has been broadcast for the first season through Apple Music for subscribers of the service. A second season is about to come , what is not clear is if it will be on Apple Music or on a separate service
Carpool Karaoke is an extension of James Corden’s late show on CBS . Small episodes where either the presenter or the famous guests themselves drive a car, sing and tell curiosities about their lives, usually in a humorous tone. The first season began in the summer of last year, and had successful guests such as John Legend, Alicia Keys, Shakira, Camila Cabello, Will Smith, John Cena or the group Linkin Park.
As announced by CBS Executive Director Leslie Moonves, Carpool Karaoke has been renewed with Apple for a second season . However, there is no release date for the second season, no details about possible changes in the structure of the episodes and no news about the distribution channel. It is expected to be released in summer and through Apple Music as the first season, but taking into account that Apple is preparing its own video service… anything can happen.
Although Carpool Karaoke was one of Apple’s first bets in the world of television, since it took over the rights, Apple’s philosophy has changed slightly. Now the bet is on big TV series and not so much on small programs. Steven Spielberg’s ‘Amazing Stories’, a series by Ronald D. Moore, or a morning series with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. But all this will come in 2019 possibly, in the meantime we will have to entertain ourselves with Carpool Karaoke.
