Just hours before the final episode, CBS will air the one-hour special The Last Last Late Late Show with James Corden Carpool Karaoke Special, which airs at 10 PM ET before the final episode at 12:37 AM ET.

Tom Cruise will also join Corden for one final ‘over-the-top’ sketch that will debut during the primetime special.

Corden revealed during an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show that a conversation with his son Max was what lead him to quit the late-night talk show and move his family back to the U.K.

‘I was filming on a Sunday and I came downstairs, it was about six a.m. and my son, who was ten at the time, was sat on the stairs and he said, “Are you working today?” and I said, “I am.”

‘He said, “I thought, well it’s Sunday,” and I said, “I know buddy but this schedule’s just all over the place. 

‘We just got to get it done because we only have a tiny amount of time before we have to go back and do the show,” and his face just kind of dropped,’ Corden said.

‘I got in the car and I called my wife Jules and I said, “I’ve realized, best case scenario we have six more summers where Max is like, even remotely wants to be around us and I cannot waste another one,”‘ Corden explained. 

‘So, really the choice was to go, “Well if I really want to do this other work, that cannot be at the expensive of our children, our family,” and that is really all it comes down to,’ Corden added.
