He wasn't gone for long, and he's already back!
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!
