Conan O' Brien's late-night TV talk show is coming to an end after 10 years on TBS. Fans will tune in for the last episode of "Conan" in June, when the 10th season concludes, the parent company of TBS and HBO Max, WarnerMedia, announced Tuesday.

It is not goodbye forever though. O'Brien's travel specials, "Conan Without Borders," will continue to be produced and the TV talk show host will also be joining a new variety series on HBO Max.

"In 1993, Johnny Carson gave me the best advice of my career: 'As soon as possible, get to a streaming platform,'" O'Brien joked. "I'm thrilled that I get to continue doing whatever the hell it is I do on HBO Max, and I look forward to a free subscription."

O'Brien has worked as a late-night host for 28 years. Upon David Letterman's retirement in 2015, he became the longest-working of all current late-night talk show hosts in the U.S., according to CBS News. He previously worked as a writer and producer on various TV shows and briefly hosted "Late Night" on NBC in 1993.

"Twenty-eight years is a monumental achievement in late-night television,” said Brett Weitz, General Manager 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."

"We can’t wait to see what he and the rest of Team Coco will dream up for this brand new, variety format each week," added Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer, HBO and HBO Max.
