So far, no. But last year the team of Conan O’Brien Must Go released a sneak peek video. The video had a duration of two minutes and 37 seconds and generated a lot of excitement among fans and people who had been waiting for him to return on television. It opens with a lovely visual of some cold place consisting of mountains covered with ice.

Suddenly, Conan appears in a Viking costume as he walks around with full head gear and a weapon in his hand. He then meets a bunch of similarly dressed people and says something inaudible.

After a second, Conan breaks character and says, ‘I have to say I’m not feeling it.’ This leaves all of them in splits. The video then continues with Conan going around the globe to meet his fans who had appeared on his podcast. This includes countries like Norway and Thailand.

Apart from meeting people, Conan also spends some time engaging with the country’s culture and cuisine as well. The video also consists of some really funny scenes including one where he is getting punched by a kid. Overall, it helps in generating excitement for the show and has the trademark humor Conan is known for.


Conan O’Brien has been a part of the popular culture in America for years. There is an entire generation that has grown up watching his talk shows. For years, he entertained audiences with his distinct style of comedy and self-deprecating humor that was loved by people across the world.

But all this came to a halt after he said goodbye to television recently. Since then, he has been more active doing different things including hosting his podcast. Conan O’Brien Must Go can be called a loosely inspired off-shoot or spin-off of his podcast.
