Season 2 will premiere the first week of February and continue to air on Monday and Thursday nights.

Showtime’s presidents of entertainment Gary Levine and Jana Winograde announced their renewal of Desus and Mero Thursday afternoon (November 21). “Desus and Mero have been a fantastic addition to the Showtime family,” Winograde said in a statement. “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 duo made their Showtime debut February 21, 2019, after two years with Viceland and a year with Complex TV. The pair still host the fan-favorite Bodega Boys podcast. Subsequently, the premiere episode scored over 150,000 viewers.


The Desus and Mero Season 1 finale will air tonight at 11 p.m. EST.
