According to sources, the infamous TBS talkshow led by Conan O’Brien is coming to a close in June of 2021. Conan has reportedly signed on to a deal with HBO Max to crate a weekly variety show, though no information with regards to a premiere date or a plot have yet to be announced. The travel special, Conan Without Borders however, will still be airing on TBS.
Conan had this to say in a statement: “In 1993 Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: ‘As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform,’” Said Conan. “I’m thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription.”
Conan O’Brien first entered the spotlight back in 1993 after replacing David Letterman on Late Night. Then in 2009 he replaced Jay Leno on The Tonight Show but he quit following the NBC announcement that pushed his program to 12:05 a.m. instead of the usual 11:35 p.m. In 2010 he moved over to TBS and started hosting his own talk show in November of the same year.
