Team Coco will continue to play for TBS for four more years. The network says Conan O'Brien will be sticking around to host his late-night talk show through 2018.

The announcement Wednesday comes with the late-night landscape in flux at rival networks. In recent months Jimmy Fallon has taken over NBC's "Tonight Show" from Jay Leno, while David Letterman has announced his retirement next year from CBS' "Late Show," with Stephen Colbert taking over.

Before joining TBS in November 2010, O'Brien had hosted NBC's "Late Night" followed by a brief stint as star of "Tonight."

Recently TBS announced that in 2015, O'Brien will become the first late-night host to broadcast his show from San Diego's Comic-Con.

"Conan" airs Monday through Thursday at 11 p.m. ET.
