“Prior to A&E making a decision not to renew the series ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter,’ the parties involved were unable to reach an agreement for the ninth season,” the statement read. “This has been a great ride for eight 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.”
This isn’t the first time A&E and Duane “Dog” Chapman haven’t seen eye to eye. In 2007, the network halted production of the bounty-hunting reality show for six months following a leaked phone call in which Chapman used the N-word multiple times. What do you think the Chapman family is going to announce about their future?
