“Dog The Bounty Hunter”: Next Season Is The Last

After eight seasons on A&E, the highly popular show “Dog The Bounty Hunter” is getting the boot.

Dog, otherwise known as Duane Chapman, became an unlikely hero to millions of viewers as the cameras followed him and several family members/co-workers on the hunt for fugitives for his bail bonds company in Honolulu, Hawaii. His larger than life persona–tall, tanned, blonde, usually shirtless–became fodder for more than a few spoofs, as did his wife, Beth. But it seemed to always be done in good humor, with regard for the man who made a living by capturing people who he often deemed down on their luck. After almost every arrest, Dog and Beth made it their business to offer their capture a smoke on the ride to jail, along with some kindly words of advice, which was often coupled with scripture from the Bible. Dog’s bark was truly worse than his bite.

But for as much as the public came to know and love the lovably gruff bounty hunter, they also came to care about his personal life, as it was chronicled on the show because of his family’s involvement with the business. The show saw huge ratings when he finally married Beth after many years and many children together, and fans mourned along with him as he learned his daughter had died in a car accident just a day before the wedding.

No doubt fans will still want more of their Dog even after the show leaves the air, but for now, they’ll have to settle for the upcoming season, which airs next month and will be the last.

Dog the Bounty Hunter was cancelled after 8 seasons. That’s like 56 seasons in Dog the Bounty Hunter years.

    i think it is awful that after 8 yrs they are cancelling the dog there are far worst t.v shows out there that s are so stupid old shows that they insist on bring back and all the teeney pop shows that just a waste of paper and of air space. at least dog was doing qalot of good for the state of hawaii and this is how they show thanks him by firing him oh ya what a big joke. i watched dog and the family ever week and looked forward to see the chase. i think they will be sorry about there desion to cancell the dog will come back to bite there asses. a and e is getting worse in there in there show line up it is almost boring and i will be watching more of true tv and discovery and less and less of a and e. you mad a really huge fuck up. thxs cindy from phoenix az.
