Will The Wall have another season or a new host? Deadline reports NBC is assessing the status of the TV show’s third season in light of recent sexual abuse accusations against host Chris Hardwick.
The game show centers on pairs of players as they pursue a cash prize of up to $12 million by answering a series of trivia questions. NBC renewed the series for a third season back in March.
As reported earlier, AMC has already pulled Hardwick’s Talking series after a recent essay by his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, accused the host of years of sexual and emotional abuse. Now, NBC is taking time to “assess” Hardwick’s position on The Wall, saying they take “allegations of misconduct very seriously.”
Read NBC’s full statement below:
These allegations about Chris Hardwick took us by surprise as we have had a positive working relationship with him. However, we take allegations of misconduct very seriously. Production on The Wall does not begin until September, and in the meantime we are continuing to assess the situation and will take appropriate action based on the outcome.”
