After almost 30 years in the industry, Conan O’Brien has decided to step away from the talk show world, announcing the departure of Conan and himself from TBS after an 11-year run.

According to the comedian and talk show host, Conan will run for another two months, with its final episode to air on June 24. Despite stepping back, O’Brien reassures his fans that they’ll still be able to watch him on TV, announcing at the same time his move to HBO Max to host a weekly, variety-format show.

O’Brien originally began his talk show career when he took over from David Letterman in 1993, leading his own Late Night With Conan O’Brien. After a turbulent stint which saw O’Brien take over Jay Leno‘s The Tonight Show and then get replaced again by Leno, O’Brien left NBC, starting Conan over on TBS in 2010.

“28 years is a monumental achievement in late-night television,” said Brett Weitz, GM for TNT, TBS, and truTV. “We’re incredibly proud of the groundbreaking work that Conan and his team have accomplished during the 10 years at TBS and are so glad that we will continue to have his presence on our air with the Conan Without Borders specials. We celebrate his success and are glad to see it grow across our WarnerMedia family.”

Fans can catch the last two months of Conan over on TBS.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Riot Games is teaming with Netflix for a new League of Legends animated series.
