Desus & Mero isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. According to Variety, Showtime has renewed the series for a second season on the premium network. It will premiere on February 3rd and continue with the biweekly format the show’s had since May, airing every Monday and Thursday.
Jana Winograde, one of Showtime’s Presidents of Entertainment, released a statement alongside the renewal announcement. “Desus and Mero have been a fantastic addition to the Showtime family. With their hilarious commentary on current events, spirited conversations with major political figures and celebrities, and unique tours of their much-beloved New York City, Desus and Mero bring an entirely new perspective on late-night programming and we can’t wait to see where they shine that light in 2020.”
Desus Nice and The Kid Mero originally gained notoriety with their podcast The Bodega Boys and subsequent web-series Desus vs. Mero. The duo enjoyed a popular run on Viceland before moving their series to Showtime earlier this year. They were also honored at the Webby Awards earlier this year with a Special Achievement Award for their illustrious careers.
The season 1 finale of Desus & Mero will air tonight, Thursday, November 21st.
