Through WarnerMedia today, Conan O’Brien announced he’ll be ending his current show on TBS on June 2021 and then moving to a weekly show on HBO Max, which is a streaming service. It’s unclear if his new show will feature an audience.
Given that his current gig will end in June 2021, there is some doubt if the United States will be in a position where he can safely bring back audience members by then. It will mark his twenty-eighth year of hosting a late night talk show, which is incredible. Given the changing landscape of television and the way we consume entertainment, it’s unlikely many will be able to match this feat.
I look forward to Conan’s new show.
