Nick Cannon may be bringing his hit show “Wild ‘N Out” back to MTV after he was fired by ViacomCBS over the summer for making anti-Semitic comments on his podcast.

According to Variety, Cannon has been regularly talking to Chris McCarthy, president of ViacomCBS’ Entertainment and Youth Group, about returning as the host of the popular improvisational comedy show.

“We continue to follow Nick’s journey and I’m impressed by how he’s owned his mistakes,” McCarthy told the outlet. “He’s been an extended part of our family for almost 20 years and a personal friend of mine for almost half that. He’s leading by example, apologized and trying to learn to understand and help others do the same. That’s the kind of partner we want to work with.”

Back in July, the “Masked Singer” host was dropped by the network after he was accused of making anti-Semitic remarks. “Our melanin is so powerful and it connects us in a way that the reason why [white people] fear us is because of the lack that they have of it,” Cannon said. “When you have a person that has the lack of pigment, the lack of melanin, they know that they will be annihilated. So therefore, however they got the power, they have the lack of compassion — melanin comes with compassion, melanin comes with soul.”

He continued, “It’s never hate speech, you can’t be anti-Semitic when we are the Semitic people. When we are the same people who they want to be. That’s our birthright. We are the true Hebrews.”

Following the backlash, Cannon issued an apology to the Jewish community and he also had a sit-down interview with Rabbi Abraham Cooper on his “Cannon’s Class” podcast. “I made a lot of people mad, your community mad — I made my community mad for apologizing,” he said. He then went on to say that he doesn’t have hate towards any group of people. He believes the Jewish community and Black community should be connected based on their hate of white supremacy.
