AMC clears Chris Hardwick to return as host of Talking Dead
After an internal investigation into Hardwick's ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra's sexual misconduct allegations, AMC has cleared Hardwick to return to his AMC jobs at Talking Dead and Talking with Chris Hardwick. Yvette Nicole Brown won't fill in for him on The Walking Dead after-show, but she'll still host a Walking Dead preview special. "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," AMC said in a statement. "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."
