Following the news on Monday that A&E had decided to cancel “Dog the Bounty Hunter” after eight popular seasons on the air, we now have the first statement courtesy of the show’s famous star Duane “Dog” Chapman and his wife Beth.
In a message posted on the couple’s official site (via his attorney Marty Singer), the family thanked everyone for their support — and promised that there would be something new coming up for them in the near future:
“This has been a great ride for 8 seasons and we would not be where we are today but for our loyal and dedicated fans. We are about to start a new chapter, and an announcement will be made sooner rather than later. You can’t keep a good Dog down.”
During its run “Dog” had become one of A&E’s most-popular programs, not only in the ratings but also when it came to headlines from other news organizations. No matter what he ends up doing, we have a feeling we are going to be seeing plenty more of him soon.
Now that you have had more time to process the show’s cancellation, what is your take on it?
