Netflix will present a posthumous Norm Macdonald comedy special, an individual with knowledge of the plans confirmed to the TheWrap on Thursday. The special — which doesn’t yet have a title — is expected to premiere on May 30.

The former “Saturday Night Live” star left behind an hour of unused material that he filmed at home during the COVID lockdown. He intended to re-shoot it in front of an audience, but did not get a chance before his death in 2021.

in to CTV article about Netflix’s May 3 “Celebrating Norm” event, his sister-in-law, Joyce Napier, wrote that Macdonald recorded a comedy special in his apartment that will now be released by the streaming giant.

“Oh wait: there was an Easter egg. It turns out Norm left an hour of new material behind, recorded in his apartment from him during the lockdown. It’ll be a Netflix comedy special soon. So, we have that. Which is precisely what Norm wanted.”

Macdonald died of leukemia on Sept. 14, 2021 at age 61. The comic’s death from him came as a shock, as he had n’t previously shared his nine-year battle with the disease with the public.

This will be this third special: “Me Doing Stand-Up” aired on Comedy Central in 2011 and “Hitler’s Dog, Gossip & Trickery,” debuted on Netflix in 2017.
