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
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.
