AMC has pulled Chris Hardwick‘s Talking With Chris Hardwick series just a day before its season 2 premiere, following accusations of abuse, sexual assault and industry blacklisting by a former girlfriend of Hardwick’s. Actress, model and producer of the web series Just Cos Chloe Dykstra had written a post Friday on Medium discussing the incidents; while she did not call Hardwick by name, multiple specific details made it apparent who she was referring to. Hardwick will also not appear on San Diego Comic-Con panels, as previously planned. Still up in the air: the Hardwick-hosted NBC game show The Wall, and AMC‘s Talking Dead show, also hosted by Hardwick.
