So A&E decided to reinstate the show, and Beth and Dog returned to TV screens. What’s more, Dog the Bounty Hunter continued to be incredibly popular for the next few years. In the process, it spawned all sorts of merchandise and earned the Chapmans a fortune, too. But in 2012 the show was taken off air again, and this time it was for good.
Unlike before, however, a racism controversy wasn’t the cause for the show’s end. The reason was apparently that Beth and Dog wanted to focus their attentions on the bail industry instead. Beth, who is president of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States, outlined her plans to In Touch in 2016. “Our industry is under attack,” she said. “There are bail reform movements springing up across the country that would end the cash bail systems.”
