It looks like it’s the end of the road for American Chopper once again. The Discovery Channel reality series will wrap with a four-way bike build-off special, titled The Revenge. It’ll air live from Las Vegas on December 11th.
In a statement to EW, Discovery’s Eileen O’Neill said, “After 10 years and 233 episodes of incredible, riveting reality television, American Chopper will be ending its run. This series was one of the very first family-based reality programs on television. Special thanks to Pilgrim Studios for over a decade of great producing. The Teutuls have given us really innovative bike builds and real drama since 2002. We wish both Orange County Choppers and Paul Junior Designs the best.”
American Chopper began on Discovery Channel in March 2003 and later moved to Discovery’s sister channel, TLC. The show was canceled by TLC in February 2010 but, six months later, it was announced that the Teutuls would return as American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior. The new version premiered on TLC but then moved to Discovery halfway through the first season.
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear the news? Do you think the Teutuls will return one day? Who’s your favorite?
