‘Desus & Mero’ Renewed for Season 2 at Showtime

Season 2 premieres on Feb. 3

Showtime has renewed “Desus & Mero” for a second season, the network announced on Wednesday.

The late-night talk show will return for season two on Monday, February 3, with all-new episodes airing Monday and Thursday nights. The first season of “Desus & Mero” airs Thursday night at 11 p.m.

“Desus and Mero have been a fantastic addition to the Showtime family,” said Jana Winograde, president of entertainment at Showtime. “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.”

Hosted by Desus Nice (Daniel Baker) and The Kid Mero (Joel Martinez), “Desus and Mero” is the duo’s follow-up to their late-night talk show on Vice. The series features the duo chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more, as well as giving their take on the day’s hot topics in their signature style in front of a small live studio audience from New York City.

Produced for Showtime by JAX Media, “Desus & Mero” is executive produced by Desus Nice, The Kid Mero, Lilly Burns, Tony Hernandez and Victor Lopez.
