Is Frank Fritz On New American Pickers Episodes?

Based on that video, Frank Fritz is not back on the new episodes of American Pickers. He has not been back on the show since March 2020. However, it took the History Channel another 16 months to announce that Fritz was fired from the series. Moreover, the two childhood friends who loved the Laurel and Hardy references also parted ways.

Now, it seems that his long-standing feud with Mike Wolfe is continuing. Instead, Mike Wolfe’s brother Robbie is back.

Moreover, fans of the picking series are not happy about this. The comments below the tweet include, “I don’t see Frank???” Also, “Not the same without Frank.” Another asked, “Is Frank back?” Lastly, “Bring back the bearded charmer.”

Sadly, Frank is still not back, and the show’s ratings have shown a decline without the charming picking. But, the History Channel has still not brought him back.

What Happened To Frank Fritz?

First of all, American Pickers alum Frank Fritz has battled some serious health issues. The Sun reports that back in 2013, Fritz revealed that he was battling Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s is a serious inflammatory bowel disease that can cause fatigue, malnutrition, weight loss, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

Therefore, he took Seasons 8 and 9 off to deal with his health. He wound up losing 65 pounds, which made the former reality star look like a new man. “The weight loss is me watching what I’m eating so I can keep my disease under control the best I can. I’m just eating healthy.”

In addition, he is exercising much more. “After a while, I started watching what I’m doing and I’m doing a little bit more walking. I keep pretty busy around here too, taking care of the grass and getting rid of the weeds.”

In addition, he has suffered back issues on and off-camera. The series can make them travel over 70,000 miles a year. That can be tough going for anyone with back issues.

Moreover, Frank was angry at his childhood friend Mike Wolfe for not even checking up with him. Although Wolfe continues with the successful reality series, he has not even called back to check on his former buddy.

Don’t miss new episodes of American Pickers on Saturday, July 9, at 9 p.m., Eastern. Will you be watching?
