Catfish brings together couples who have interacted solely through LCD screens. Over the course of months they've supposedly fallen in love -- but what will happen when they meet in real life for the first time? This season gets even more heated as each episode will not only reveal if someone has been catfished, but there will be an explosive second admission resulting in the most shocking catfish tales in franchise history. Also, for the first time, Nev will take his investigations home with him and let audiences meet his wife, Laura, and one year-old daughter, Cleo, for a look into his family life. The new season premieres in January 2018.
