Want to know the Last Week Tonight with John Oliver 2020 return date, or a number of things to expect?
If you didn’t know in advance of tonight’s episode, this marks the end of the season … sad as that is. We’re going to have to wait a little while in order to see more of the series — think in terms of 2020, to be specific. We know that there are a lot of people out there who don’t understand why Oliver’s show isn’t on as often as a Tonight Show or most other products in late-night, and one of the big reasons why is simply the nature of the series. Every episode is a well-researched, thought-out piece. While Oliver does a lot of comedy, most of it is related in some way to facts that the team put a lot of time into. It takes a long time to piece all of this stuff together!
Would we love more of Last Week Tonight? Sure, but at the same time we understand that 30 episodes is more than the standard half-hour comedy on television.
Typically, new seasons of Last Week Tonight tend to kick off in February, so that is what we would anticipate this time around, as well. Yet, the sad thing about the long wait is that there are a lot of things that will likely happen between now and when new episodes air. Think in terms of impeachment hearings, Presidential primaries, debates, and a whole lot more. The Iowa Caucus happens on February 3; by the time the show comes back, the politics in this country could feel very much different.
Granted, there is no official premiere date as of yet courtesy of HBO, so there’s a lot of time and room for things to change. For the time being, though, we can only go based on some of the information that we have. It’s too bad that we can’t have John Oliver, on demand, offering up takes on various headlines along the way…
