Jimmy Kimmel Live

Now that the writer’s strike is over, late night shows can get back to business, which means ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” will return Monday, October 2, with brand new episodes and guests.

The Details

ABC’s Emmy® Award-winning late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” has been in repeats ever since May 1, 2023, when the WGA strike went into effect.

But with that now strike over, Kimmel can return to his late night show with new episodes, and he has announced his guests for his first week back.

  • This night’s guests are still to be determined.

Keep in mind with the SAG-AFTRA strike still in effect, actors can’t talk about film or TV projects, so they’ll most likely be talking about other projects like books, podcasts, or music.
