Dave Chappelle has announced his iconic series, Chappelle’s Show, is heading back to Netflix.
Months after the comedian asked fans to boycott his flagship show due to a dispute about royalties, the 47-year-old has allowed his work to return to the streaming service.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the stand-up comic shared a 10-minute clip that saw him discussing the matter.
He began: ‘I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes, it’s nothing.
‘And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.’
Back in November, Dave claimed that he ‘never got paid’ when he left Chappelle’s Show, which ran on Comedy Central from 2003 to 2006.
‘People think I made a lot of money from Chappelle’s Show,’ he said in the video.
He requested for fans to stop watching because he was allegedly being unable to receive royalties for the show based on a contract he signed with Comedy Central and its parent company, ViacomCBS.
Following the release of the clip, Netflix chose to remove the show from their platform – just one month after it made its debut – as Dave also claimed the show had been licensed without his consent.
The following month saw HBO Max agree to remove the series from their streaming platform.
