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 will miss this show very much. This family is comprised of interesting characters who care about each other and their fellow human beings. Did the “guiding force” at A and E not pay any attention to all of the fans that turned out for the program on Dog’s book tour, do they pay any attention to the messages that are shown across the screen during the programs? Seems to me that the only people they care about are ones that are interested in storage units.

I am kinda disappointed! But, unless the whole family gets asked back I’m not interested! Everyone made the Show especially Duane Lee and Leland! Hey DOG is older you would think he’d want for his Sons to take over the Bizzness. And Beth? Oh beth is the Motivator of the crew, I like her Spunk! Go Beth!!! To all the Haters; ya’ll just mad cuz The Chapman Family don’t play, when u play u pay! I like the energy they put out! Beth u call me when u need me! I got ur back. Northern Cali.

Yes they are trashy, that is what made is so good. But if Leland and Duane Lee leave, not a good show.

I hate that it is being cancelled. i really hope that another station picks it up Iwatch reruns of them on another channel saturday at 12 midnight. Maybe that channel will pick them up. A&E has lost a viewer in me. I hope they lose alot of viewers because of this stunt they are pulling.

A&E is making a huge mistake!!! So many people looked up to Dog and his Family. So many troubled people out there and the chapmen family were inspirational to all.

I thought this show ended several seasons ago. It couldn’t have been very good in the last few years, because I never heard anything about it.

Yes I will miss watching the show. I only watch A&E for that show. I hope they get picked up on another channel. A&E is stupid for canceling the show. They are going to lose a lot of viewers over this. I am a big fan and I will miss it so much!
