Netflix is scaling back its Chelsea output.

The streaming giant, which has renewed every single one of its original offerings for at least two seasons, is set to premiere the second season of its talk show foray, Chelsea, beginning on April 14. But whereas the first season of Chelsea, starring comedian and host Chelsea Handler, featured three half-hour episodes hitting Netflix every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, the second season will feature one-hour weekly installments, premiering every Friday night.

Chelsea’s second season will comprise 30 episodes — the same amount as the first season, Variety reports. Check out Handler’s quirky announcement video below:

Netflix initially announced that it had renewed Chelsea back in July — despite the fact that, by some accounts, it had gotten off to a shaky start, with no interviews breaking into the cultural zeitgeist and showrunner Bill Wolff departing a mere three weeks after the show’s premiere.

The streaming giant, has, however, placed a stated emphasis on comic programming in recent weeks, and has acquired standup specials from Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Amy Schumer, and Sarah Silverman.
