Duo Desus Good and The Child Mero, who established one of many high comedy manufacturers of the last decade with their podcast Bodega Boys and their eponymous present on Showtime, are properly and actually executed.
Desus and Mero, in any other case referred to as Daniel Baker and Joel Martinez, respectively, are arguably the largest podcast to Hollywood crossovers within the trade. After breaking into podcasting with Complicated TV’s Desus vs. Mero podcast and Bodega Boys, the pair had a present on Viceland from 2016 to 2018 earlier than getting the Showtime late-night sequence that may take them mainstream.
“Desus Good and The Child Mero shall be pursuing separate artistic endeavors transferring ahead,” Showtime stated in an announcement Monday night. “Showtime’s late-night discuss present Desus & Mero won’t be returning for a fifth season. Its ultimate episode aired Thursday, June 23.”
Showtime’s affirmation got here after days of hypothesis over their standing. The TV sequence was solely 15 episodes into its run earlier than going darkish (earlier seasons had greater than 50 episodes), and the podcast had primarily been dropped — the final episode aired in November. Final month, Desus assured the “bodegahive” that “the artwork is coming again.” However final week, Mero had apparently commented on a social put up that it was over: “PODCAST DONE ENJOY THE BACK CATALOG MY PALS.” On Friday, Desus responded, tweeting “the hive deserved higher than this ending.”
No one appears completely satisfied in regards to the breakup. The bodegahive is melting down on Twitter, and Showtime simply misplaced an enormous fats hit that managed to get President Barack Obama and President Joe Biden (when he was working) as company. After such a smash run, it’s unlikely the 2 will disappear from the general public eye, however regardless of the duo’s catchphrase, the model didn’t survive.
