He wasn't gone for long, and he's already back!
It was the end of an era back in August when Jon Stewart left the Daily Show desk after serving as host for an astounding 16 years.
And while correspondent Trevor Noah has done a commendable job leading the Comedy Central late night series, we were still a little curious as to where Jon was going to end up.

Well, that question was finally cleared up for us on Tuesday when it was reported that the 52-year-old would be taking his talents to HBO for a four-year development deal!
Apparently, the comedian will start out by creating short format videos for the premium cable network's digital services, but this could transition further into potential television or movie opportunities, should he want to take on such a challenge.
Jon is one of the most awarded producers in sketch and satire of all time, so we're beyond confident that his work with HBO is going to turn out just as fantastic!
