Chris Hardwick is coming back to the small screen. Deadline reports the Talking Dead and Talking with Chris Hardwick host will return to AMC following recent sexual assault allegations.
As reported earlier, AMC pulled the two chat shows after a former girlfriend of Hardwick’s accused him of sexual and emotional abuse. Hardwick’s NBC series, The Wall, was also put on pause to assess the situation.
Now, AMC has decided to reinstate Hardwick as the host of Talking Dead and Talking with Chris Hardwick following an investigation into these sexual assault claims. Read the network’s public statement below:
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.”
