Corden has been the host of 'The Late Late Show' since 2015.

The year 2023 will mark James Corden's final one as the host of 'The Late Late Show', as he has only extended his contract for one more year with the network and is set to depart afterwards, Deadline reported.

"It's been [...] a really hard decision to leave because I'm so immensely proud of the show," he told the outlet, adding that he was also "thrilled" to be extending for the year. "I've really been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure."

It doesn't look like a lot of fans are going to miss him, though.

Some people have already asked the network to bring back Craig Ferguson, who was the show's host from 2005 to 2015.

There's no particular reason for all the hate towards Corden, it's just that a lot of people do not think he has the necessary sense of humor. Others believe he's "too annoying".

For instance, his recent take on the Will Smith slap at the Oscars, when he covered the song 'We Don't Talk About Bruno', changing 'Bruno' to 'Jada', has not garnered a lot of success. In fact, many people pointed out that the joke has been stolen from social media.

Still, everyone's gotta give one thing to Corden: his 'Carpool Karaoke' series has become an incredible success, with the episode featuring Adele being the most viral video of 2016, watched more than 250 million times on YouTube. Among other celebrities who also shared a musical ride with Corden were OneDirection, Lady Gaga, Sia, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber and many others.
