The last time we heard from Duane Chapman of A&E’s Dog the Bounty Hunter, Duane was busy trying to hunt down the Quaids for a chat. What’s going on with the family these days? Well, apparently “Dog” and the entire family are being sent to the pound as A&E is canceling the show, which was once a big hit. Read on for all the details!
That’s right, after almost 9 years, A&E is canning Dog The Bounty Hunter, at least that is what TMZ is reporting. They claim sources have told them: “Dog’s people and A&E have been negotiating, but the network has now decided to pull the plug and not do season 9.” The series made its debut back in 2004, but then took a break in 2007 after audio of Dog using a racial remark surfaced, causing a huge public controversy. The show, which follows the lives of Duane Chapman, and his family and friends as they endure the dangerous world of bounty hunting, resumed production in 2008.

In more recent episodes of the series, the family has been seen attempting to reconcile, after two of Duane’s sons left the series last year. Duane Chapman and his wife Beth recently appeared on Today to talk about some of the recent things going on with them, including death threats. According to Beth Chapman, the death threats have been directed at herself, as well as three of Dog’s daughters, and the FBI is now involved. Now, that is definitely some scary stuff – another reason that the family should be taken off television.
A&E has yet to officially comment on the cancellation, but Duane and Beth Chapman did! Click here to find out what they had to say! What do you think of A&E canceling Dog The Bounty Hunter?
