Dog the Bounty Hunter: A&E Series Cancelled

dog the bounty hunter canceled no season 9There won’t be a ninth season for Dog the Bounty Hunter. The A&E TV series has been cancelled by the cable channel.

The reality show follows Duane “Dog” Chapman and his family as they work as fugitive-recovery agents across the country. Dog’s team includes his wife Beth, their grown sons (Duane Lee Chapman, II and Leland Chapman), daughter “Baby” Lyssa, and Dog’s unrelated “brother,” Tim “Youngblood” Chapman. The show was inspired by Chapman’s appearance on Take This Job, a series about people with unusual occupations.

Debuting in 2004, Dog the Bounty Hunter became a valuable property for A&E and versions of the show have been seen in various international markets.

Over the course of the eight seasons, the show has had plenty of backstage drama. In 2011, Duane Lee and Leland quit and severed ties with the family.

In September 2011, Bobby Brown, who’d appeared in 30 episodes of the show, sued because he said that he’d been promised that he’d become a full castmember but it didn’t happen.

The final episodes of Dog the Bounty Hunter will start airing on Saturday, June 2nd, with a pair of installments, “Luck be a Lady” parts one and two.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that Dog the Bounty Hunter has been cancelled? Was it time for the show to end?

    I honestly am sad to see the show go. It was very entertaining and shows what it is that bounty hunters do and how dangerous and serious it is. You say they are white trash but in reality they are taking white trash off the streets for not going to the court date they were supposed to but drama really? What family doesnt have drama? Theres is just on tv for people to see. But there is a lot we dont know so instead of people judging them so much why dont you just look at the purpose of the show and thats to get people that need to go back to jail.

    This is by far the best thing A&E has done Dog and his crew think they are so much better then everyone remember the Dog was a convicted of murder so he is a life time felon !
    and should stay on his record and his wife Beth i did 6 months in jail and now Bay Lisa gets of
    on her criminal crime drunk and breaking windows every show they are praying which is great but listen they are all cussing they beep out the words all the time so no I say
    God Bless A&E for cancelling this show and folks remember his crew might of caught many
    people but with the helps of RATS

    It’s about time, those people are the ultimate in white trash, hope they saved some of the money they made making all those poor people’s lives. painful and public. please stop airing the reruns. I could go on but why. just do your own research on just who those people are. some of their best friends are drug dealers. and the praying on camera (PLEASE)
