It's been a long two years since we last got to see the hilarious David Letterman interact with our favorite celebrities. His popular Netflix show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, has made waves for showing stars in a whole new light. From Barack Obama to Kim Kardashian, there's no one Letterman can't access. Not only does he hit them with the hard-hitting questions we all want to know, but he's known to venture out with them into the real world with his 'on location' segment. Season four's guest list includes; Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Will Smith, Kevin Durant, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Ryan Reynolds. So what to expect from the new season?

For those unsure if the six-episode release is worth the binge, the preview clips promise laughter and chaos. In a sneak peek from the Billie Eilish episode, uploaded to the Netflix YouTube channel, the Grammy Award singer and Letterman are seen being briefed by an instructor before taking to the race-karting track. "I'm worried because I'm elderly, and I just don't want something to snap," David jokes. "Why don't we go miniature golfing?" he suggests. "Because I'm good at this!" Eilish responds wittily. Suited and booted, they began to race.

"No bumping... Please go easy," the instructor pleads with Billie, who he claims crashed into people the last time she visited the course. "Oh, please!" she responds. Starting slow, the pair behave as instructed. That's until Billie crashes into David's cart, laughing like a naughty schoolkid as the instructor glares at her unpleased. "The kid should be barred for life," David teases as they take off their helmets.

In another preview clip, Letterman sits down with guest Ryan Reynolds who recalls the time he got himself an earring in an attempt to be like his idols, Wham!. In anticipation of his parents' response, all three of his brothers had gotten an earring in solidarity to protect their younger brother from parental punishment.
