Good news for fans of John Oliver's comedic takes on cigarettes, Thanksgiving, and whatever else is happening in the world: HBO has just renewed Last Week Tonight for two more seasons. The weekly late-night news show recently returned for its second season after a critically praised first season in 2014 — which just won a Writers Guild of America Award. Last Week's third and fourth seasons will air in 2016 and 2017, respectively, with 35 episodes each.
