It doesn't seem like there. There is an episode in season 4 of The Magicians titled "Lost, Found, Fucked". However, when I tried to correct another episode, currently titled, "Marry... Kill" which should be titled "Mary Fuck Kill", the correction did not take.

SyFy edits the titles so that they are show on their website as "Lost, Found, F...ed" and "Mary F... Kill".

Adrian: IMDb does not impose any restriction on the vocabulary that can be used in a film or episode title. However, you may need to provide a link to prove that the official title of the episode does indeed include the uncensored version of a word. If the evidence that IMDb can find (like the Syfy website) shows the episode title only in censored form, they may assume that the censored version is the official title.
