Catfish, the hit documentary film turned highest-rated new cable show of last year, will air its Season 1 finale this Monday, Feb. 18 at 10pm ET/PT on MTV. Leading up to the Catfish: The TV Show season ender, the network will show the complete first season in a marathon featuring never-before-seen footage, beginning at noon.
The series, in which filmmakers Nev Schulman and Max Joseph unite online lovers for the first time — with a wide variety of surprising, emotional and completely engrossing results — was recently thrust into the national spotlight when Schulman weighed in on the Manti T’eo dating hoax.
On the Catfish season finale, Schulman and Joseph come to the aid of sensitive, artistic Mike, a down-on-his-luck guy who connected with Felicia on a dating website, but becomes suspicious of their bond when he arrives for a visit and finds out that no one named Felicia lives at her address.
Burned by his last relationship but still hopeful that this girl’s the real deal, Mike enlists the Catfish crew to help him learn the truth.
The following Monday, the duo team up with SuChin Pak for Catfish: The Reunion Show, an hourlong special that will update viewers on the status of other Season 1 couples.
If you have a Catfish tale of your own and are willing to see it played out for the MTV cameras, Catfish: The TV Show is now casting Season 2. Fill out the online application here.

Catfish: The Reunion Show hosted by SuChin Pak, Nev Schulman and Max Joseph premieres Monday, Feb. 25 at 11 pm ET/PT.
