NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA - APRIL 20: Desus Nice (L) and The Kid Mero attend the FYC Event for VICELAND's DESUS & MERO at Saban Media Center on April 20, 2018 in North Hollywood, California.

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, the comedy duo best known for their Bodega Boys podcast and late-night TV show Desus & Mero have split up.

The show’s official Twitter page tweeted that the comedians “will be pursuing separate creative endeavors moving forward” and that Desus & Mero would not be returning to Showtime. In turn, the show changed it’s bio to read “Our run was good as hell.”

“Shouts to showtime & shouts to the hive, thanks for being part of the journey,” Desus tweeted. “Proud of the show my staff made every episode. Big tings soon come…”

Mero responded to the news by simply retweeting the show’s Twitter announcement.

The show ran for four seasons on the network and included guest stars such as Lil Nas X, Noname, Vince Staples, and more. The last episode aired on June 23.

This announcement follows the rumored split of the two comedians; those rumors started circulating on Monday (July 18).
