Just over a month after it debuted, MTV announced today that Catfish: The TV Show will be coming back for a second season in 2013. Based on the 2010 documentary Catfish, the show debuted on November 12. Last month Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman singled out the 11 PM premiere of Catfish: The TV Show as having had ”the highest-rated launch in MTV history.” With Nev Schulman, whose own online love drama was the basis of the 2010 doc, and filmmaker Max Joseph as hosts, Catfish: The TV Show “aims to tackle “the mystery and complexities of dating in a digital world,” according to MTV. New episodes of the show will start airing on January 7, 2013.
