Midnight talk show host Conan O’Brien will be the last to host his long-running nightly TBS “Conan” talk show on June 24, WarnerMedia said Monday.
In the final week of the TBS show, a lineup of special guests will culminate in a one-hour finale that looks back on the 11-year run.
“I think it will be the fourth iteration of the program, with plans to reappear at HBO Max in the near future,” O’Brien said at the beginning of “Conan” on Monday.
Taking Twitter up, the Team Coco Twitter page shared the announced video and captioned the post. “Conan has announced that the final episode of #CONAN will air on June 24th. Stay tuned for special guests over the next two months and look back over the last 11 years.”

WarnerMedia said O’Brien’s HBO Max show departs from the traditional talk show format.
Known for his clever comedy, often self-deprecating and nasty, O’Brien was the host of the longest-serving late-night talk show in the United States, and NBC tapped him to take over from David Letterman in 1993. Host of a late-night franchise who began his career in the year.
He has won four Emmy Awards and six Writers Guild of America Awards.
