Desus Nice and The Kid Mero will once again take the stage at the Bodega with a rotating roster of guests — or just the two of them at times — in order to get into a relaxed conversation about the day’s or week’s hot topics and dig deeper into a wide range of topics such as pop culture, sports, music, politics, and others.
Desus & Mero’s forthcoming season will return to a once-a-week schedule at the climax of the epidemic, with the pair of hosts conducting the show from their homes. Now that the late-night show has returned to the studio, it will air just once a week to allow for adequate production in a timely manner.
Season 4 will begin with a high-profile guest: Denzel Washington will be the season premiere’s first invitee to the Bodega, where he will be expected to reflect on his record-setting tenth Academy Award nomination, this time for Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth. Season 4 will also have appearances by Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Pusha T, and Damson Idris.
Additionally, Showtime revealed that J.D. Amato, who has joined the team as an executive producer, will work as Desus & Mero Season 4’s showrunner. Amato has considerable experience producing and writing late-night programs and satirical sketches: he produced and wrote numerous episodes of The Chris Gethard Show and also served as a producer on The President Show and The Problem with John Stewart.
Desus & Mero made their independent debut in 2016 and was shortly acquired by Showtime. Apart from interviews, the highly praised program has the presenters commenting on weird news, testing celebrity-made products, and generally doing whatever they want from episode to episode. The late-night discussion program has included guests such as Barack Obama, Dave Grohl, Keanu Reeves, Eli Manning, Matt Damon, Joe Biden, Anna Kendrick, and Sandra Bullock, among others.
The fourth season of Desus & Mero will air on Showtime on March 10.

Longtime acquaintances Desus Nice and The Kid Mero reconnected online in the early days of Twitter, where they unleashed their potent personalities and found themselves kindred spirits. That led to stints on Complex and MTV, the Bodega Boys podcast, and a daily late-night show on Viceland, developing a feverish following. The quick-witted duo brings a distinct voice to late night, delivering smart and comedic commentary on any and all topics, that keeps audiences buzzing. Their life advice book, God-Level Knowledge Darts: Life Lessons from the Bronx, was released by Random House in 2020 and became a New York Times Best Seller.
