Late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien will host his long-running nightly TBS “Conan” talkshow for the last time on June 24, WarnerMedia said on Monday, ahead of his shift to a new show on HBO Max.

The final weeks of the TBS show will feature a line-up of special guests, culminating in an extended hour-long finale recapping his 11-year run.

“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,” O’Brien said at the start of “Conan” on Monday.

WarnerMedia said O’Brien’s HBO Max show would move away from a traditional talk show format.

He has won four Emmy Awards and six Writers Guild Awards. JB
