HBO announced today that Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has been picked up through Season 10, giving the weekly satirical late-night talk show another three-season renewal that will see it on the air until at least 2023.
Since its 2014 premiere, the series has become a Sunday night staple on the cable network. Over the years it has developed a devoted fanbase while earning its share of critical acclaim, with multiple Emmy Award wins in numerous categories including Outstanding Variety Talk Series. The show has been nominated for nine Emmys this year.
Last Week Tonight is hosted by comedic personality John Oliver, who uses the Sunday-night forum to review the week's news, politics, and current events. Oliver offers his unique perspective and distinct voice on social and existential issues facing America and the rest of the world.
Season 7 of Last Week Tonight returns from hiatus on September 27 for its final seven episodes. Look for Season 8 to premiere in early 2021.
