According to Deadline, DESUS & MERO stars Desus Nice and The Kid Mero are in talks of leaving Viceland after two seasons. The duo are also in talks for a deal with Showtime. The final episode of DESUS & MERO is set to air June 28.
Viceland made its first foray into a daily late night talk show two years ago with the debut of “Desus & Mero.” A show that features voices yet to be heard on the late night landscape, “Desus & Mero” come to Viceland from their popular podcast “The Bodega Boys” and web show “Desus vs. Mero.” The show shares a fresh take on the day’s events, the culture at large and day-to-day life… all through the eyes of two friends born and raised in the Bronx.
Most TV channels are just a collection of shows – Viceland is a collection of personal points-of-view. Everything at Viceland has a reason to exist and a strong perspective. Our mission is to examine the world we live in, and explore the things that confuse us, make us curious, make us laugh, or awaken our sense of wonder.
VICELAND features series examining all things culture, including music, food, technology, sex, fashion and more. The channel is overseen by Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, a long-time VICE partner and creative director for the company, and features series hosted by VICE newcomers like Ellen Page, Ian Daniel, Michael K Williams and Hailey Gates, as well as longtime VICE hosts like Action Bronson, Thomas Morton, and Eddie Huang.
