Watch: Conan O’Brien Interacts with Fans, Does Muay Thai in Trailer For His New Max Series

Leave it to Conan O’Brien to convince German filmmaker Werner Herzog to narrate the opening of the trailer for his new travelogue series, Conan O’Brien Must Go, which is coming to Warner Bros. Discovery’s Max on April 18.

Conan O’Brien Must Go finds the well-coiffed talk show host visiting fans around the world who’ve tune into his hit podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend, which boasts an audience of 9 million a month.

Season 1 of Max’s unscripted series consists of four episodes that take O’Brien to Norway, where he dresses up as a viking named Conan the Red and goes cod fishing; Thailand, where he goes rock climbing, plays with snakes, and does martial arts; Ireland, where he sings his heart out; and Argentina, where he rides a horse, plays soccer, and learns to dance while arguing over the proper pronunciation of “tango.”

Regardless of where O’Brien travels, there are plenty of fun costume changes to be had as the host goes to great lengths to immerse himself in the the culture — chatting with locals, enjoying their regional cuisine, and above all, “making things weird,” which O’Brien claims is his true gift.

After 28 years in late night, O’Brien continues to reinvent himself and stay relevant, all while giving back to his fans. They followed him from TV to his podcast network, which he sold to Sirius XM for $150 million in 2022.

It’s safe to say that O’Brien can afford to fly private, but mixing it up with his adoring public is where all the fun lies.
