Will there be an all new episode of the Emmy winning HBO series Last Week Tonight with John Oliver premiering tonight? We have the answer here!

It’s Sunday, and the question you’re probably wondering if you’re here now is: Is John Oliver back tonight with an all new episode of Last Week Tonight? Great question. Here’s the answer!

YES, Oliver is back tonight! Gear up because the Emmy winning late night funnyman will definitely be delivering tonight. He always does!

Now, let’s cover a bit of bad news really quick. While Oliver is back tonight, the unfortunate news is that after this, it’s done for a while. Tonight’s show is actually the season finale of the fourth season of the series. It means that Oliver will presumably be going all out to make it a special one, but it still means that he’ll be going on hiatus after it’s over.

Still, HBO has strong faith in the series. Earlier this year it was renewed through 2020, meaning Oliver will remain on the network for years to come. Breaks between seasons are always going to be a little rough, but if we know that he will for sure be back then it makes it a bit less painful.

So, to reiterate, after tonight we won’t be seeing Oliver again until 2018. We will need to wait until Season 5 to premiere, but it’s alright. With the show being guaranteed for at least a few more years, we can handle the break.
