Apple has once again pushed back the premiere date of “Carpool Karaoke: The Series,” its first original video series that is inspired by James Corden’s popular segment on his late-night talk show. The series was supposed to debut this Monday, but Tim Cook’s company decided to move its launch to “later this year.”

On Monday, Reuters learned that Samsung’s biggest rival delayed the release of its original Apple Music video series offering. This is the second time that Apple moved the premiere of the show. Previously, a premiere party for the series was scheduled to happen in Los Angeles in March; however, the team behind it announced at the Code Media conference in February that the show will instead debut this April.

Apple did not give specific details as to why it is delaying the release of the 16-episode series. It simply said in a statement that fans should expect “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” to arrive later this year. The company did not give a specific date, for it could still be in the process of thinking of the perfect timing for the show’s launch.

A CBS Television Studios representative did not comment on the delay, but in an email the rep noted that they are excited for the Apple Music show’s debut and they “look forward to everyone seeing it later this year.”

Apple reportedly bought the rights to the “The Late Late Show with James Corden” segment back in mid-2016. Then in February, the tech giant proudly showed the world the first trailer for its music-filled series that features John Cena, Shaquille O’Neal, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Alicia Keys, John Legend and many other big names in Hollywood.

According to AppleInsider, the “Carpool Karaoke” series pairs musicians, sports stars, actors and other famous personalities together. Each pair or group is tasked to go on a road trip and sing their favorite tunes while on the road.

The show is said to be Apple’s new effort in luring more subscribers to its streaming service Apple Music, which has struggled to gain traction since its launch in mid-2015. Another show that the Cupertino giant is planning to exclusively release on Apple Music is “Planet of the Apps,” a game-style reality TV show that is due this spring.
