Talking Dead Host Returns from Suspension by AMC

Fans of AMC’s “Talking Dead” will soon see a familiar face on their screens in August. AMC has decided to fully reinstate “Talking Dead” host, Chris Hardwick, after initially suspending him in June. He was suspended from the network after allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct against his ex-girlfriend, actress Chloe Dykstra, were made public.

AMC took measures into their own hands to fully investigate any and all allegations against Hardwick.  Allegations such as these have seen an upswing due to empowerment movements like #MeToo.  AMC issued the following statement in regards to the investigation:

“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.”

Of course, fans reacted to the news today with polarizing tweets.
