What started as a stunt for ratings, the “Carpool Karaoke” sessions featured on CBS’ Late Late Show with James Corden has grown into a monster hit that is about to take on a life of its own.

This week, Apple announced that it has signed a deal with CBS Television Studios and Fulwell 73 to turn the musical segments into its own standalone series. The new Carpool Karaoke show will first be shown only to subscribers to Apple’s music streaming app. The new series will begin with 16 episodes that will stream weekly on Apple Music.

Love it or hate it, Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” has been hugely popular, with many being re-broadcasted in the form of YouTube videos, so it would appear that this new project will also be a huge hit. However, here’s the rub: Corden will most likely not appear in the new videos, according to the Daily Mail. Apple has yet to announce who the new host will be, and although Corden won’t be crooning this time around, he will serve as the series’ executive producer along with Ben Winston.
