Will Frank return to ‘American Pickers’?

While Frank is recovering and fans are praying for his return to health, he is not likely to return to American Pickers. That is because Mike Wolfe is already working on filming the next season of the show. This is likely to make fans angry about Frank’s termination even angrier, knowing the show is not only going on without him but almost dismissing the fact that Frank almost died.

Frank left American Pickers in 2020 when he took time off to recover from back surgery. However, with rumors of alcohol addiction plaguing him, Mike reportedly pulled the trigger and had his childhood friend fired from the show. Frank said he called producers but never got a straight answer.

Before his stroke, Frank said that he was in talks with a producer who lived in Las Vegas about a spinoff show that would feature him as the main star. With the way fans have been talking since Frank left American Pickers, it would have been interesting to see how the two shows would compare and possibly to see which show had the biggest ratings. That isn’t likely to happen now, as Frank’s number one concern has to be recovering and getting healthy again.
