Desus & Mero has been renewed for its second season at Showtime. The news comes ahead of the finale for its first season which airs Thursday night.
Season 2 will kick things off on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, and will air all-new episodes each Monday and Thursday at 11 p.m.
“Desus and Mero have been a fantastic addition to the SHOWTIME family,” said Jana Winograde, co-president of entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. “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.”
The series features “popular TV and podcast personalities Desus and Mero speaking off the cuff and chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more.”
The official description: Longtime acquaintances Desus (Daniel Baker) and Mero (Joel Martinez) reconnected online in the early days of Twitter, where they unleashed their potent personalities and found themselves kindred spirits. That led to stints on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast and a daily late-night show on Viceland, developing a feverish following. The quick-witted duo brings a distinct voice to late night, delivering smart and comedic commentary on any and all topics, that keep audiences buzzing. Desus and Mero continue to host their Bodega Boys podcast.
