AMC Fully Reinstates Chris Hardwick as TALKING DEAD Host After a Comprehensive Assessment
AMC has completed their investigation of the allegations made against Chris Hardwick by his ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra. They have now made the decision to bring him back to host Talking Dead and Talking with Chris Hardwick. AMC Networks released the following statement:
"Following a comprehensive assessment by AMC, working with Ivy Kagan Bierman of the firm Loeb & Loeb, who has considerable experience in this area, Chris Hardwick will return to AMC as the host of Talking Dead and Talking with Chris Hardwick. We take these matters very seriously and given the information available to us after a very careful review, including interviews with numerous individuals, we believe returning Chris to work is the appropriate step."
So there you have it. That statement is pretty loud and clear. Hardwick will resume his Talking Dead hosting duties starting with the Mid-Season Four premiere of Fear the Walking Dead on August 12th and continue through Season 9 of The Walking Dead which premieres on October 7th.
The Walking Dead Season 9 preview special will still be hosted by Yvette Nicole Brown, who temporarily stepped in for Hardwick when he was suspended AMC's Talking with Chris Hardwick will also resume airing.
What do you all think about Chris Hardwick making a comeback after the allegations were made against him?
