TBS said the show’s final weeks will feature special guests and “an extended one-hour finale looking back over the past 11 years of this iteration of O’Brien’s long late night career.”
O’Brien joined TBS in 2010, where he has been for more than a decade.
He discussed the end of his show at Conan on Monday.
“A very old Buddhist monk once told me that in order to take something, you must first leave something,” O’Brien said. “I’ll be honest with you, he was drunk on the skull and very militant. And I say you can take two things if you use both hands. He just got angry and started rocking me, so I ended the conversation and listened to his advice. “
O’Brien added that he was “very proud of what we have achieved” on the show.
“So, what I would like is, I would like in the last few weeks to be happy to look back at all the absurd madness that my team and I have invented,” he said. “Best of all, I just want to point out, there will be shockingly few, if any, references to Donald Trump, because it’s always been my favorite kind of comedy.”
