The Breakup of Desus and Mero Seemed to Have Been a Long Time Coming

Since Showtime announced in July that not only had Desus & Mero ended, but that Desus Nice and The Kid Mero were splitting up, fans have been guessing about what prompted the Bodega Boys’ breakup. The Bronx-born duo’s meteoric climb from Twitter fame to podcasting to anchoring shows on Viceland and Showtime signaled a new road to success made available by the internet, and their breakup was a big disappointment to longstanding fans.

Mero reveals further specifics about what happened in an interview with Blackbird Spyplane but also hints at deeper issues that have yet to be uncovered. Some of the conversations are off the record, due to “Media-Training Mero,” and the fashion newsletter summarises it as “several minutes of open talk about difficulties with Showtime officials and about fissures in his relationship with Jesus dating back to 2017.” However, the comic clarifies the duo’s agreement with the network.

Ramin Djawadi’s House of the Dragon composition struck a fresh chord for the Targaryen era.” We signed separate deals with Showtime,” he explains. “We’re always going to do our own thing at some time.” The ending looked abrupt and strange, but that’s how television works. People turn off their televisions all the time.”

 The Breakup of Desus and Mero

Some viewers speculated that “Hollywood Desus,” aka Daniel Bakerincreasing,’s goals clashed with his co-more star’s raw, spontaneous attitude. (While Jesus just secured a higher-profile role as a guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he mentioned being “fired from Showtime” during his monologue.) Mero was asked by Blackbird Spyplane to comment on these rumors.

There were folks we thought might have assisted us in returning the program to what it was at Vice when it seemed fresh and a lot edgier—genuinely different and excellent,” he says. “And Showtime was not attempting to do so. That was the start of the end. It was causing me a lot of concern, but I’m a first-generation immigrant child, so you never quit your job unless you have a new one. But I believe Jesus said, ‘F**k it.’ That also marked the end of the podcast.”

While the interview does not address the previous report that Showtime canceled the series due to manager Victor Lopez’s alleged “asshole behavior,” Mero does discuss his own ambitions, including reviving talks on a long-gestating sitcom co-created by Vampire Weekend singer Ezra Koenig; he has previously shown more of an interest in acting, appearing in the Netflix film Vampires Vs. The Bronx. Naturally, he was asked about the likelihood of reuniting with Desus.
