What is James Corden going to do next?

At the time of writing, it's unclear what James Corden will do next; but, it's safe to assume he'll look to expand his acting career. James recently starred in and executive produced Prime Video's black comedy series Mammals, so there's a good chance he'll return to the show if it gets renewed for a second season.

He's also starred in a variety of movie musicals, including Cats, Into the Woods, The Prom, and Cinderella, and it's likely he will return to the genre for one or more projects in the future.

However, the comedian also seems eager to spend more time with his family.

In January 2023, he sat down with Drew Barrymore on her daytime talk show and revealed the decision to leave the show became "crystal clear" while filming Mammals. James explained that his son, Max, was upset over his father's busy filming schedule, which, in return, made James upset because he couldn't spend time with his son.

"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 even remotely wants to be around us, and I cannot waste another one,'" he recalled. "If I really want to do this other work, that cannot be at the expense of our children, our family... that is really all it comes down to."

James continued, "But I will know, at my core, that the best thing for me and the best thing for us as a family is to put down some roots in London, and it feels absolutely right in every single way."
