Conan O’Brien Announces End of TBS Show

Conan O’Brien is one of the most enduring names in late night talk TV. Even before he hosted his own show on TBS, Conan, he ran NBC’s Late Show for a long stretch after 1993, taking the reins from David Letterman. Since the beginning of Conan in 2010, O’Brien has tirelessly appeared almost every night, cracking jokes and interviewing guests, signature red hair flipping subtly. But all things must come to an end, and in O’Brien’s case, that end is in June.

At the top of the latest episode of Conan, O’Brien announced that after 11 years, the talk show is winding down to a conclusion. The final episode is slated for June 24, and will feature a reminiscence of some of O’Brien’s favorite clips, special guests, and perhaps a few other surprises.

“We’re going to create, I think, a really fun, special environment and it’s going to be, I think, a lot of fun,” O’Brien said. “And, you know, I just want to point out that for 11 years, the people at Turner have been absolutely lovely to me and everyone here at the staff. They gave me a home when I needed one most and I am eternally grateful and very proud of what we’ve accomplished here. And so, what I’d like is, I’d like these last couple of weeks to be a fond look back at all the absurd madness my team and I have concocted.”

Once the show is over, O’Brien will begin developing a new show to air on HBO Max. News of this deal went out back in November, with the plan being to create a variety show similar in nature to Conan, but also different.

“The plan is to re-emerge on HBO Max sometime in the near future with, I think, what will be my fourth iteration of a program. Imagine a cooking show with puppets and you’ll have the wrong idea,” O’Brien joked.
