HBO has renewed Real Time with Bill Maher through 2018, the network announced Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Having just aired special election coverage during the Republican and Democratic conventions, the show will return for season 15 in 2017, while season 16 is scheduled for 2018.
“Bill Maher’s fearless and irreverent insights make him an important voice of common sense,” said HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys. “We are happy to extend our partnership and continue to provide him with the same uncensored forum that he’s enjoyed on the network since the late ’80s.”
Added Maher: “As long as Washington keeps serving up crazy, we’ll be there to push it around the plate. In these turbulent, uncertain times, I can’t think of anything more important than me being on TV.”
