His run on late night TV ended last year, but you’ll see David Letterman back on TV next month.

Letterman will return to TV for the first time since leaving The Late Show in May 2015 when he appears on Years of Living Dangerously, a documentary series about climate change that airs on National Geographic Channel.

Letterman, a proponent of clean energy, will talk to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about how the country is making the change from non-renewable energy to solar power. The episode, “Into the Light,” is set to air Oct. 30.

“I’m in no position to editorialize about solar power or any kind of renewable power. I’ve created the excuse, the expression, kind of a love affair with this,” he says in a promotional video for the show. “Think about the coal-fired, dangerous, smoke belching generating plants.”

“And then you look at this,” Letterman says as he stands next to a solar panel. “And it’s friendly. There’s something very appealing about this, and it’s smooth. Look at it. I can touch it and it’s safe. I put my head right there on it.”

Of course, Letterman’s in for a shock when he kisses the solar panel!

Letterman announced his appearance on the program last year. Years of Living Dangerously won the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Nonfiction Series.
