Dog The Bounty Hunter will not be returning for a 9th season after being canceled by A&E. TMZ broke the news that the show was canceled after negotiations broke down.
The reality series followed Duane "Dog" Chapman and his family and friends, who made up his team of bounty hunters. The show mainly takes place in Hawaii or Dog's home state of Colorado.
The series debuted in 2004 and took a hiatus in 2007 after audio of Dog using a racial slur surfaced and caused a massive public controversy. Production resumed in 2008.
A statement from Duane and Beth Chapman on the Dog The Bounty Hunter website said
“On behalf of Duane "Dog" and Beth Chapman, here is a statement: 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 9th season. Dog and Beth stated, "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." Thanks, Marty Singer Attorney and Spokesperson for the Chapmans”
