MTV UNVEILS NEW EPISODES OF "CATFISH: THE TV SHOW"
HOST NEV SCHULMAN HUNTS FOR NEW CO-HOST BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28 AT 9PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - November 7, 2018 - MTV today announced that new episodes of "Catfish: The TV Show" will premiere on Wednesday, November 28th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. "Catfish's" next chapter will attempt the impossible: finding someone to replace longtime co-host Max Joseph. The explosive eight new episodes will feature Nev Schulman as he auditions actors, athletes and influencers to help him track down online daters and bring them face-to-face for the first time.
Each week, viewers will not only be on the hunt for the "Catfish" - the one who created the potentially fake identity to lure the "Hopeful" into the relationship - but will also get to join the search for Max's replacement. Nev and the mystery co-host will dig deeper with each person in the relationship, revealing surprising truths and unexpected twists. The investigations promise to have the most shocking revelations yet. Nev will also continue to take his investigations home to get assistance from his now pregnant wife, Laura, and their toddler, Cleo.
Join the investigations and follow @CatfishMTV on Twitter, @mtvcatfish on Instagram, and "MTVCatfish" on Facebook.
