It is being reported that Showtime has cancelled Ziwe after two seasons. The news comes three months after the late-night variety show wrapped its 12-episode sophomore run, which was double the length of its first season.

The move signals the cable network's exit from late-night talk shows. 'Desus & Mero,' which ran for four seasons, ended its run last summer.

Ziwe was a weekly variety show that featured interviews, sketches, musical numbers and more. Host Ziwe Fumudoh also met with everyday people in unscripted and unpredictable situations. Celebrity guests on the show included the likes of Stacey Abrams, Phoebe Bridgers, Fran Lebowitz, Gloria Steinem, Drew Barrymore, and Wayne Brady.
