Throughout the recent descent into apocalypse, the one constant has been John Oliver explaining how and why that's happening in a comedic and entertaining manner.

So it goes that 'Last Week Tonight' has been renewed for three more seasons by HBO, which will probably see us up until the end of civilisation as we know it. "We’re all extremely happy to be able to continue to do our show on HBO for another three years, or until the end of the world, whichever comes first," Oliver said in a statement.

The current season of the show has covered a wide range of topics, from the current pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, the protests in Kenosha, the rise of misinformation and conspiracy theories, not to mention using these topics to lace in some excellent dry and dead-pan humour along the way.

Here's the latest video, which covered the Republican National Convention and the Kenosha protests.
