The late-night television shows, along with HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” and “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” will return following news that the Hollywood writers’ strike has ended.

Some of your favorite late-night television talk show hosts are returning to the air now that the Hollywood writers’ strike has come to an end.

NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers” will return Monday. Also back on the same night will be CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”

The announcements came on the shows’ respective social media accounts Wednesday morning.

Several of the late-night hosts teamed up for a podcast called “Strike Force Five” while their shows were off the air. It was a limited series featuring Fallon, Meyers, Colbert, Kimmel and John Oliver, and profits from the podcast went to their out-of-work show teams.

In a joint statement from “Strike Force Five” announcing the return to television, they said that “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” will return to HBO on Sunday.

HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” also took to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, to tell viewers that the show will be back with new episodes Friday.

The restriction for writers to work ended during the early hours of Wednesday, after it was announced that the Writers Guild of America had agreed to a three-year agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers

Among the issues hammered out in the deal were higher wages, a raise in the rates of health care and pension contributions, bonuses to residuals based on viewership for streaming, and other details and rules about artificial intelligence.
