It looks like John Oliver is set to host his own satirical comedy series in 2014, according to THR.

Following his time hosting Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” over summer this year, the successful television star will make his home at HBO in 2014.

The premium cable network announced today that it had secured a deal with Oliver that will take a look at the week in news, politics and current events; broadcasting weekly on Sunday nights, the show is expected to debut early next year.

“We weren’t otherwise searching for another weekly talk show, but when we saw John Oliver handling host duties on “The Daily Show”, we knew that his singular perspective and distinct voice belonged on HBO,” said Michael Lombardo, Programming President of HBO.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining HBO, especially as I presume this means I get free HBO now. I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at “The Daily Show” for the best seven and a half years of my life. But most of all, I’d like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know. In fact, if I fail in the future, it’s entirely his fault,” added Oliver.
