Max Orders Second Season of Conan O’Brien Must Go

The viewers (and reviewers) have spoken, and all agree: they want more Conan

On Wednesday, HBO/Max head honcho Casey Bloys announced that Max has renewed Conan O’Brien’s return to television in Conan O’Brien Must Go for a six-episode second season. 

“Conan’s ridiculousness knows no bounds,” Nina Rosenstein, HBO’s EVP of Programming, Late Night & Specials, said in statement. “Our audience told us in no uncertain terms that four episodes of Conan O’Brien Must Go is not nearly enough. To which we say: be careful what you wish for.”

The series, which is an offshoot of the Conan O’Brien Needs a Fan podcast, is a travel series/comedy show mash-up that sees O’Brien travel the world to meet listeners of his podcast in person. In the first season, O’Brien traveled to Norway, Thailand, Argentina, and Ireland—where he surprised listeners, immersed himself in the local culture, and even made an appearance on a long-running Irish soap opera

Season 2 will see the beloved former late-night host host tackle six new countries in the hilariously manic way that only hecan.

“This latest travel show has been so fun and rewarding that I suspected it was all a cruel prank,” O’Brien said in response to being asked to film a second season for Max. “My apologies in advance to the next six countries.”
