NBC announced today that The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has been extended for an additional two years. The late night talk show had already been renewed through 2026 back in 2021.

"For nearly 30 years, Jimmy Fallon has brought laughter into the homes of millions and charmed audiences from the stages of 30 Rock," said Mark Lazarus, Chairman, NBCUniversal Media Group. "It's been a privilege to witness Jimmy at the helm of 'The Tonight Show' and we're thrilled to see what innovations he and the incredible staff will deliver in the years to come at the network."

"Throughout his time at NBC on 'Saturday Night Live,' 'Late Night' and 'The Tonight Show,' Jimmy Fallon has demonstrated his extraordinary talent and been an integral part of our iconic comedy brand," said Frances Berwick, Chairman, NBCUniversal Entertainment. "We couldn't be more excited to continue our relationship with Jimmy and to see him carrying 'The Tonight Show' torch into the future."

Fallon hosts this seventh incarnation of 'The Tonight Show' on NBC. He has been the face of the storied franchise since 2014 when he took it over from Jay Leno. Airing weeknights at 11:35pm, the show features an opening monologue, comedy sketches, interviews with celebrities, and games that often include competitions between Fallon and his guests.
