Jono and Ben end show

Jono Pryor & Ben Boyce announced on air tonight that after an epic 7 seasons, Jono & Ben (the TV series) will not be returning in 2019.

Some quotes from the boys and Chief Content Officer, Andrew Szusterman below:

Jono:
We've seen the Stuff.co.nz comments, so we know not everyone loves it as much as us! But seriously, it’s been one hell of a ride and we look forward to celebrating the last 7 years over next final 5 weeks of the show.

Ben:
This show has been such a huge part of our lives. Over the last 7 years, we've made over 200 episodes… we’ve put our pride (and at times our bodies) on the line all in the name of comedy - and we've loved every minute of making this show.

Andrew Szusterman:
The current format for Jono and Ben has been running for 7 years, which for an entertainment show in NZ is almost unprecedented. Jono and Ben will remain very much a part of the MediaWorks family and I am really excited about what we can do in the future - we've already started discussing some ideas....
