Don't worry, James Corden fans — the new Carpool Karaoke series hasn't totally totaled its late night predecessor!
Last year, the Late Late Show host and co-creator Ben Winston sold the viral segment to Apple as a stand-alone series.
This move is similar to Jimmy Fallon's Lip Sync Battle getting its own FX series, which essentially removed the segment from The Tonight Show lineup — aside from a few all star exceptions.

Carpool Karaoke, however, will still be able to rev its engine without roadblocking Corden's late night segment — as the longform version will see different kinds of entertainers behind the wheel!
Late Late showrunner Winston said that while the late night segment will still see Corden singing with recording artists, Apple's version will pair musicians with different comedians, talk show hosts, and other artists!
Winston explained at the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour:
