Conan To End TBS Late-Night Talk Show June 24 With Hourlong Finale

Conan O’Brien will host his TBS late-night talk show Conan for the last time on June 24, the network announced Monday. The shows leading up to his grand farewell will feature all sorts of special guests, culminating in an hourlong finale that will celebrate the last 11 years of Conan.

O’Brien is currently the longest-tenured late-night host on American TV, having assumed the reins of NBC’s Late Night franchise following David Letterman’s departure to CBS in 1993. He staked out that slot with clever comedy for 16 years before a brief stint hosting The Tonight Show in 2009. In 2010, he started anew on cable with Conan.

O’Brien will continue his popular Conan Without Border travel specials — which have sent him everywhere from Italy to Greenland to Korea — in some form on TBS. He’ll also re-emerge on HBO Max with a variety-style series down the road. And O’Brien cohosts the podcast Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, which premiered in 2018.

Watch The Trailer For Tracy Morgan’s New Comedy The Last O.G.

Comedy superstar and multiple Emmy nominee Tracy Morgan (30 Rock) returns to television on TBS starring in The Last O.G., a new comedy series that he executive produces alongside creator and executive producer Jordan Peele (Get Out).

The Last O.G. centers Tray (Morgan), an ex-con shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for on good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (played by emerging breakout star actress and comedian Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby & Dante Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading on unfamiliar territory.

The Last O.G. also stars Cedric the Entertainer as the head of the halfway house where Tray is staying, and Allen Maldonado as Tray’s cousin Bobby, who helps him adjust to life on the outside. Executive producing with Morgan and Peele are Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum, John Carcieri, and Joel Zadak of Principato Young.

The Last O.G. will begin on April 3 on TBS, with episodes airing Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
