Desus and The Kid Mero captured the hearts of Twitter long before their onscreen fame by way of their popular nighttime talk show, Desus & Mero. According to a new report, the pair is allegedly leaving Viceland to take their talents to the Showtime network although nothing has been officially announced as of yet.

Deadline reports:

Desus Nice and The Kid Mero are on the move. I hear the duo will be leaving Viceland where they have hosted their own daily late-night talk show, Desus & Mero, for two seasons. It hasn’t been revealed where they are headed but I hear they are close to a deal at Showtime for a weekly show.

I hear Desus and Mero started telling the staff about their pending departure from Viceland yesterday. The show’s final episode is expected to air June 28.

I hear Viceland tried to keep Desus and Mero onboard with a new deal but I hear the duo got an opportunity they felt they could not pass on. Reps for Viceland and Showtime declined comment.

Desus & Mero has been on the air since October 2016 and runs Monday through Thursday at 11 PM EST.
