Yvette Nicole Brown taking over as host of the Talking Dead

Despite saying she wasn’t aiming to take Chris Hardwick’s job, Community star and The Walking Dead super-fan Yvette Nicole Brown has taken Hardwick’s job.

Brown will become the interim host of the popular after show, The Talking Dead. After Hardwick was accused of sexual abuse by his ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra, AMC quickly removed Hardwick from his hosting duties.

Comic-Con also removed Hardwick from moderating duties during The Walking Dead panels. Brown also took over duties for Hardwick for those panels as well.

“Yvette Nicole Brown will step in as an interim guest host of 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, as we work to complete our assessment related to Chris Hardwick,” the network shared in a statement.
