WATCH: Desus and Mero Announce Time, Date for Showtime TV Show Debut

The brand is indeed strong.

Comedians Desus Nice and The Kid Mero announced the time and date for their long-awaited new Showtime series "Desus & Mero" on Thursday. The show will premiere on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 11 p.m. EST, according to a video featuring the duo shared on the show's official Twitter account and YouTube channel.

"Desus and Mero is coming back, the return of the most illustrious show in the history of mankind," Nice said in the video.

Both Desus and Mero also shared the news on their individual Twitter accounts on Thursday evening.

"The wait is over! YA BOYS ARE BACK! - #DesusandMero is coming to @Showtime on Feb 21 at 11 pm!" Nice tweeted.

Mero, a father of five, joked that his announcement wasn't regarding another child before sharing the video.

"HEY MY PALS!! BIG ANNOUNCEMENT (NO NOT MERO VI) WEEEEEE'REEEEEE BAAAAAAACCCCKKKKKKK!!!!!! THE WAIT IS OVER, THE WAVE HAS RETURNED!! #SHOUTOUT TO @SHOWTIME #DESUSANDMERO IS BIZZACK!!" Mero said.

The program will be Showtime's first-ever late-night talk show and is expected to feature the hosts "speaking off the cuff and chatting with guests at the intersection of pop culture, sports, music, politics and more."

The series will debut seven months after the duo's departure from the Viceland channel after their show, also titled "Desus & Mero," came to an end after almost two years on the air. Desus and Mero were originally expected to continue their show for several months, but Viceland reportedly cut the tapings short after news of their agreement with Showtime became public.

The duo has seen a huge growth in success during the past few years after having previously appeared on shows for Complex and MTV, as well as continuing their "Bodega Boys" podcast.

In April, Desus and Mero ranked 26th in the Big Lead's "40 under 40: Sports Media" list. The Bronx natives also hosted their "Bodega Boys Live" show at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden as part of the New York Comedy Festival earlier this month.

Newsweek will have more on this story as it develops.
