Are you ready to get “catfished” once again? MTV has let go a brief, two-minute trailer for the unscripted phenom, which returns for an expanded 16-episode second season later this month. Hosts Nev Schulman and Max Joseph continue Catfish: The TV Show in another attempt to uncover dark secrets — and illuminating truths — behind online dating and its romances.

The clip features the duo embarking on a slew of “mysteries,” with relationship issues including a girl who still hasn’t met the love of her life eight years after the pair first connected on the web and a man who sent “a couple of thousand” of dollars to a woman he met on the Internet. Prior to Catfish’s return to the airwaves, MTV will run the 30-minute special Hooked on Catfish: The Road to Season Two at 11 p.m. on June 17, during which viewers will get a sneak peek at the new season. Catfish to date was MTV’s highest rated show at the 11 o’clock time slot and was its highest-rated series debut since 2007. Season one clocked in at 2.4 million viewers, and swelled to 2.8 million for its Jan. 21 episode amid the Manti Te’o “catfish” controversy that dominated the headlines. Catfish returns June 25 at 10 p.m. on MTV. Props: Inside TV
