The Kid Mero revealed the split between him and Desus Nice had been planned for more than a year in a recent interview.

Since Showtime announced the cancellation of their late-night series Desus and Mero, Joel The Kid has spoken publicly about the separation for the first time. Desus and I had talked pursuing separate interests more than a year prior to the show coming to an end, and that chat reinforced us in signing general agreements that recognized our intent to operate independently of one another, Mero Martinez said in the Basic! podcast (via Variety). We were both proposing or looking to join existing projects as individuals as early as June of last year.

It’s not like I’m calling to break up with my girlfriend. The Kid Mero went on to clarify that the comedy team’s decision to part ways in a way that is supportive of one another was a strategy that everyone had agreed upon.

After deciding to pursue independent careers, Desus and Mero informed Showtime in July that they would not be returning to the network for a fifth season. In the future, the renowned @desusnice and @THEKIDMERO will pursue separate creative projects, according to a tweet from the show’s official account that first broke the story. Showtime won’t be getting #DESUSandMERO back. Family, it’s been a fantastic run.

(Prior to Kid Meros’ remarks, reports suggested that the duos manager or other personal factors were to blame.)

The Kid Mero stated that it was preferable for Bodega Boys to separate ways now rather than after their alliance became a supermax. Patrick Ewing at the end of his career when he has two “knee pads.”

Martinez is keeping all of his options open as to what comes next, including films, television shows, books, and more. I want to discuss everything.
