The dark comic series we love returns just in time for Valentine’s Day.
To update, Sunday, February 14: Consider this your friendly reminder that Last week tonight with John Oliver finally returns for season 8. The new season begins tonight, Sunday, February 14, with John oliver once again guiding us through these uncertain times. The season 8 premiere will air on HBO at 11 p.m. and then head to HBO Max the next day. The new episodes of season 8 will also follow this launch strategy. Buckle up, because if the trailer (which you can see below) is any indication, Season 8 is going to be a wild ride.
It’s silly to wonder, but since the attack on the Capitol, one of the things I’ve wondered is how Last week tonight with John Oliver will cover it. I admit how weird it is that we look for a comedy to dig into the news, but we’ve been that way for most of the century since The Daily Show with Jon Stewart I tried to find the story among the stories, looking beyond the media narrative to see the social, political and economic powers that cause our current conflicts.
We’ll probably only have to wait a month for that story (unless something even more tragic and horrifying happens in the next month, which, let’s be honest, is completely in the realm of possibility) as a new trailer for Last week tonight with John Oliver announces that the show will return on Sunday, February 14. The trailer shows the highlights of the past season, which is a good reminder that even without the benefit of an audience or their studio Last week tonight It was still the best comedy show in the darkest of times, and I doubt anything will hold them back. The only ones they are really competing with right now are themselves, and as long as they keep having wacky ideas like trying to track down the erotica of rats and thirst for Adam Driver on a regular basis, they should be fine.
Review the Last week tonight with John Oliver Trailer of season 8 below.
