The Netflix special is set to be released in the fall, Variety reported. Several stars have already signed on to the project, with Natasha Lyonne directing and Maya Rudolph serving as an executive producer.

The special will reportedly feature short interviews, sketches and vignettes and focus on "politics, race, gender, class, and other light subjects."  

“It’s true! I’m getting a Netflix special!” Cooper tweeted Wednesday. 

After Trump said earlier this month that he plans to ban TikTok from operating in the United States over concerns of its ties to the Chinese government, some social media users joked that he was doing so to spite Cooper.

Trump later issued an executive order barring any transactions between U.S. companies and the Chinese parent company of TikTok, ByteDance, beginning on Sept. 20.
