As 2016 comes to its inevitable conclusion, so does the Obama family tenancy at the White House. 

To commemorate the occasion in true first lady style, Michelle Obama is inviting Oprah Winfrey, the closest thing America has to a fairy godmother, into her family's private residence. They'll discuss the last eight years as well as what lies ahead.

The timing couldn't be better: Obama is perhaps at the peak of her popularity with her magnetic speeches campaigning for Hillary Clinton and memorable turn with James Corden for "Carpool Karaoke."

"First Lady Michelle Obama Says Farewell to the White House – An Oprah Winfrey Special" will first air Dec. 19 on CBS, with an encore showing Dec. 21 on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network.
