American Chopper: Cancelled TV Series Resurrected for Season Seven

American ChopperEarlier this year, the TLC series American Chopper was cancelled after six seasons on the air. The series reportedly came to an end as a result of tensions between Paul Teutul Sr. and his son, Paul Jr. The series finale aired on February 11th.

But now, there’s word that the show is coming back for a seventh season, with both father and son on-board. Junior has apparently opened a new shop of his own that’s near the original.

He hasn’t spoken to his father in over a year and told the NY Post, “I’m always hopeful for a reconciliation, but sometimes these things happen for a reason… Even though you never want dissension in any family, especially with your father, this has allowed me to break out and do things on my own.”

Paul Sr. wasn’t quite as philosophical and said, “Junior seems to say all the time he’d like to reconcile, but the thing of it is, he’s never come to me with that… I’m happy he’s making an attempt to go out on his own, but I don’t feel he’s ever really followed through with anything in his life. But this way, if he fails, he can’t say, ‘My dad made me fail.'”

The plan is to film both of the Teutul shops and include footage from both in each episode. Filming will begin next week and the new season is expected to debut in August.

What do you think? Are you happy to hear that American Chopper is coming back?

UPDATE: It was later revealed that the Teutuls were actually returning in a spin-off, American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior.

    I hope their is continuing episodes, I know about family seperation and I think they need to cut it 0ut of film. They are good at what they do, their bikes are for sentimental value.
    Jesse dont know what hes talking about, hes jelous. I really hope their show continues for the talent they have.

    I met Paul Sr. at an event and fortunately wasw able to get a picture with him. It was in the heart of the battle with his son’s. He look as though he had lost a big part of his life.
    I hope the boys cut the dad some slack. He made be tough and not perfect, but they will miss him when he’s gone. Don’t let hatred rule your life. Guy’s give the man a break and make this last season one that we can all say. Great ending to a well thought out story of two son’s and a dad.
    Thanks for all the good times!
