The Opposition with Jordan Klepper is coming to a close, as Comedy Central has cancelled the late-night talk show ahead of the conclusion of its first season. For fans worried this might be the last you see of Jordan Klepper on the network, you can take heart; there is good news. While Comedy Central has cancelled his current show, they are giving him another one. The comedian is set to star in a new half-hour series. Here is what you need to know.
The new show is currently titled Klepper, per Deadline, and it will feature the comedian stepping outside of the climate-controlled comfort of the studio full-time. Klepper will find the comedian heading out to venture across the country as he chats with "real" people, he presumably and purposefully encounters along the way. But getting out of the studio and back to his correspondent roots is not the only the difference between the two shows.
While The Opposition was a daily show that aired new episodes from Monday to Thursday, Klepper will not. Jordan Klepper's next show will air weekly and for one-hour. No day of the week has been announced for the show to air on, so fans will have to stay tuned. The network is looking at the 10 p.m. time slot, so you will not have to stay up as late to watch live.
The choice to end The Opposition coincided with the decision to green-light Klepper. It is one of those true silver lining scenarios. For Jordan Klepper, it means leaving his character on The Opposition behind to create something new. Fans of Klepper's can definitely breathe a huge sigh of relief, as the network seems to appreciate what they have in the former Daily Show correspondent. Just as they transitioned him into his role on The Opposition, they are ready to see him take on this new adventure for the network.
Few networks have that much faith in the talent they have stored, so it is a huge compliment to their belief they have a star on their hands in the form of Jordan Klepper. Find out how it all works out and how the final episodes of The Opposition shake out when the show ends over the course of the next two weeks.
The Opposition with Jordan Klepper will air its final episode on June 28 at 11:30 p.m. ET on Comedy Central. The network is hoping for an early 2019 premiere date for Klepper, so fans of the comedian may have to wait less than a year to see him back in action.
