At the end of April we had the very first info
about Chappelle's Show - The Lost Episodes: Uncensored

Dave Chappelle is back! …Sort of. Three completed episodes from the long-lost third season of Chappelle’s Show are finally available for mass consumption. With the success of the first two seasons, Dave finally gets to meet the President of Show Business, spends some time in the limelight on MTV's Cribs, and gives his best impersonations of P.

Combine that with some great musical guests and you've got proof that Dave Chappelle is now and forever will be one of the funniest, most boundary-pushing comedians ever to grace television.

That sounds a bit high for just over an hour of material, doesn't it? Let's hope that's a mistake! Here's the cover art:
