Catfish will continue. Deadline reports production has resumed on the MTV series after sexual misconduct allegations were made against host Nev Schulman.
Hosted by Schulman and Max Joseph, the reality series investigates people who create fake online profiles to trick unsuspecting victims.
Following an investigation, MTV has found the claims against Schulman to be “not credible and without merit.” Catfish will continue production on its upcoming season. You can read MTV’s statement on the situation below:
Although we never received a formal complaint, MTV and Critical Content immediately engaged an independent third party investigator. The independent investigator found the allegations made in the YouTube videos to be not credible and without merit.
Given the results of the investigation, Catfish will resume filming. We take these matters very seriously and are committed to providing a safe working environment.”
