Plot Synopsis

The star of the film CATFISH, Nev Schulman, and fellow filmmaker Max Joseph travel across America to unite couples who have fallen in love online but have not met face-to-face. In each 60-minute episode, one hopeful romantic partner goes on an emotional voyage to discover the truth about their significant other, with these journeys often filled with mystery, surprise and sometimes shocking revelations. For each meeting, Nev and Max use their personal experiences, documentarian skills, and a healthy dose of detective work to delve into the intricacies of each relationship. From a young woman who wonders why the guy she's communicated with for over 10 years won't meet her in person, to a single dad who hopes that his online girlfriend is really who she says she is, to a farmer who believes he's dating a former Miss Teen USA/Playboy model, Nev and Max will uncover the truth. Are these relationships based on reality or are they steeped in lies? And is there hope for a positive outcome when these digital romantic partners finally meet face-to-face? Season 2 debuted on Tuesday, June 25, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT, with an episode featuring Cassie, who asks for Nev and Max's help to meet her fiance. CATFISH: THE TV SHOW returned for a 10-episode third season on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on MTV. In Season 3, the series follows family members catfishing each other, celebrities hunting down their super-fan stalkers, Instagram romance, people posing as famous music producers and scams resulting in the loss of tens of thousands of dollars. In addition to the new types of stories, Nev and Max also employ new techniques expanding their investigating repertoire. From new digital based research to more in-person meetings and even bringing the hopeful along for the investigation, Season 3 expands the scope in which they seek to uncover the truth of these possible digital deceptions. On Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, MTV premiered the fourth season of CATFISH: THE TV SHOW. Giving a different twist to Season 4, co-host Max Joseph took a five-episode hiatus to make his feature film directorial debut with WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS. In Max's absence, a variety of guest hosts joined Nev on investigations, including MTV's Charlamagne, Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf, recording artist Angel Haze, YouTube sensation Tyler Oakely and actor Alex Shaffer. Max returned for the remainder of the fourth season. After a three-month break, CATFISH: THE TV SHOW returned with new episodes on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on MTV, immediately following a marathon (2:30-10pm) of encore episodes. In the summer premiere, "Tiana & James," a young woman moves across the country to be with her Internet love after a thee-year relationship, but he is being elusive.
