Former “Community” star Yvette Nicole Brown will serve as the interim guest host of AMC’s post-show chat show “Talking Dead”.
Brown will host “The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special” on August 5th and “Talking Dead” when it returns following the premiere of “Fear the Walking Dead” on August 12th. She’s expected to stay in the position as AMC say they will “work to complete our assessment related to Chris Hardwick”.
The news comes less than two weeks after AMC announced that Brown would also serve as the moderator for the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panels on July 20th, also replacing Hardwick who stepped down in June.
Hardwick faced accusations from his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, that he abused her during their relationship. Hardwick has denied the allegations and others have since come out in his defense.
