During an episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld, the 59-year-old stated his plans of returning to the comedy stage. It has since been reported that there is a multi-special deal in the works with Netflix for the likes of $70 Million.

If this arrangement goes through, Murphy will join the growing list of other comedy icons to enter high paying deals with Netflix.

Dave Chappelle allegedly earned $60 million for his 3 part stand up special.

Chris Rock is said to have received $40 million deal for two specials.

It’s important to note that some other anticipated deals with the entertainment giant have fallen apart. Female comedians Wanda Sykes and Mo’Nique both bashed Netflix after their reported deals fell through. It was also just announced that Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It will be canceled from the platform after just two seasons.

It hasn’t been reported on when we can expect ‘The Nutty Professor’ actor’s special but TELL US: Will You Be Tuning In?
