Last year comedian and YouTuber Lilly Singh broke a glass ceiling by becoming the first woman of color in US television history to host a late-night show.

Singh is currently the only woman, the first person of South Asian heritage and the first openly bisexual person to host a late-night talk show on a major network.

And she isn't going away anytime soon. On Wednesday night NBC announced that her talkshow was coming back for a second season.

"Lilly is an incredible talent. 'A Little Late' has brought an expanding global audience to NBC and we look forward to another season of her unique showmanship and style," said Katie Hockmeyer at NBC Entertainment.

Her first season premiered in September 2019, replacing "Last Call with Carson Daly."

"Hosting my own late night show and interviewing guests from Malala Yousafzai to Snoop Dogg has been a fun ride for me. I learned so much during this first year of creating the show from scratch," she said in a press release.

Her acting credits include Fahrenheit 451, Bad Moms and Ice Age: Collision Course.

She also wrote a best-selling book called 'How to Be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life'.
