Conan ends in June after 11 years – Check out the on-air announcement
TBS has set a date for Conan’s farewell episode: Conan O’Brien’s late night talk show ends Thursday, June 24th.
The announcement came on Monday’s broadcast, which you can see in the video above. “We’re making it official,” he told the audience. “We’re finishing our TBS show. The plan will pop up again on HBO Max at some point in the near future, which I think will be my fourth iteration of a program. “
According to a TBS publication, Conan’s final weeks of the show will “include a number of special guests as well as an extended hour-long finale looking back over the past 11 years of this iteration of O’Brien’s long late-night career. ”
While O’Brien will continue to host Conan Without Borders travel specials for TBS, he will also turn his attention to HBO Max, where he is developing a weekly variety show as part of his deal with WarnerMedia.
“In 1993, Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career:” Get on a streaming platform as soon as possible, “said O’Brien when his HBO Max show was first announced in November 2020.” I’m thrilled to keep doing whatever the hell I do on HBO Max, and I’m looking forward to a free subscription. “
Conan premiered on TBS in November 2010. O’Brien previously hosted Late Night With Conan O’Brien on NBC from 1993 to 2009, and then hosted the short term Tonight Show from 2009 to 2010.
