Bill Maher is all set to kick off the 12th season of his HBO news series this Friday, Januay 17th, but HBO is already looking forward to the 2015 season. The premium channel announced at the Winter Press Tour that Real Time with Bill Maher has been picked up for a 13th season of 35 editions set to debut in January 2015.

“Bill Maher has been a treasured member of the HBO family since the late ’80s, and his irreverent wit and fearless insights make him the perfect observer for these unpredictable times,” noted Michael Lombardo, president, HBO programming. “I’m delighted that we can continue to offer an uncensored forum for his original and thoughtful humor.”

The news and debate series has long been a stalwart for HBO. With its combination of an opening monologue, roundtable discussions with panelists, and interviews with in-studio and satellite guests, Real Time with Bill Maher is an always fascinating news magazine program.
