Chelsea Handler: Netflix talk show title revealed
Chelsea Handler announced the premiere date for her upcoming Netflix series Wednesday, and now that series has a name: After asking Twitter users to send in their suggestions, Handler revealed during a Thursday press conference that the talk show will be called Chelsea.
“We thought long and hard about the title for my new Netflix show,” she said. “After two to three long hours, we came up with the name Chelsea. That’s it, just Chelsea. Not Just Chelsea. Chelsea, because that’s my name.”

Chelsea is part of Handler’s deal with Netflix that includes the previously released Chelsea Does docuseries, a stand-up special, and a talk show. She reached the deal just about two months before her E! talk show, Chelsea Lately, ended in August 2014.
Handler also revealed that she’ll make 90 episodes of the talk show per year, and, like Chelsea Lately, will perform in front of a live audience. New episodes of Chelsea will debut on Netflix every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning May 11.
