Why did Stavros decide to leave 'Cum Town'?

On June 25, 2022, Stavros took to social media with the shocking announcement that his time as a part of the Cum Town crew was no more.

"Wanted to let everyone know that I'm not a part of 'Cum Town' anymore," he led off the surprising message by saying.

The comedian went on to add, "As much as we joked about hating the fans and the podcast itself, the show changed my life and I'll always be grateful for that. Thanks to everyone who listened/subscribed/supported the show, it meant a lot! I'm sad my involvement in the pod is over but I'm also really excited for the future. I'm working on a couple things I can't wait to share. Love ya, thanks for everything."

Although Stavros did not give a specific reason for his departure in that message, frequent Cum Town listeners likely caught his subtle hints about this massive decision in recent podcasts. Leading up to the release of his independent comedy special, Live at the Lodge Room, Stavros mentioned on different occasions during podcast episodes as of late that he would be focusing on his own career and not Cum Town going forward.

Is 'Cum Town' canceled now that Stavros is gone?

Despite announcing his departure from the show, Stavros did not say that Cum Town would be coming to an end entirely. Instead, it's likely that Stavros's co-hosts Nick and Adam will step up to continue the podcast without him. Having helmed programs individually in the past when Stavros was absent, Nick seems more than capable of handling running Cum Town without his comedic buddy. It's currently unclear if Nick and Adam are entertaining the idea of bringing on a new third host as time goes on.

When Stavros announced his departure, Nick took to Twitter to write, "A heartfelt bon voyage to @stavvybaby, off to bigger and better things. Cumeatsoner Gordon will live in my heart forever."

Adam wrote his own farewell message too: "Best of luck to my brother in Christ. So appreciative of these last 6 years. Gonna miss the hell out of you on the show."

Given the tone of Adam's goodbye message to his co-host, it seems as though Cum Town will live on for the foreseeable future, sans Stavros.
