Beth Chapman Dies: ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ star, was 51

Tragic news strikes as Beth Chapman, renowned for her appearances in the reality series “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and its related spinoffs, has passed away at the age of 51. Her contributions and experiences in the field of bounty hunting have left a lasting impact, and her loss will be felt deeply.

Ms. Chapman passed away due to cancer-related complications, as confirmed by WGN America. Regrettably, she was involved in the development of a new spinoff series at the time of her passing.

Her husband tweeted the depressing information.

She usually got up around 5:32 a.m. to go hiking on Koko Head mountain in Hawaii. She only walked the staircase to heaven today. All of us adore you, Beth. Duane Dog Chapman writes, “See you on the other side.

We are devastated by the devastating news that Beth Chapman lost her battle with cancer today, said WGN America in a statement. She was a remarkable woman who was fiercely devoted to her family and enthusiastic about her career. Working with her was an absolute joy. We at WGN America will all miss her a great deal. Our hearts go out to Duane, her family, friends, and her countless admirers.

In September of 2017, Ms. Chapman received a Stage 2 throat cancer diagnosis. As revealed in an interview with The Honolulu Star-Advertiser in January, the cancer returned last November. This called for an emergency surgery and an extensive search for experimental treatments that took her far from her home in Hawaii.

The Chapman family was quickly propelled into stardom, becoming a groundbreaking representation of reality shows featuring raw, family-owned businesses. Their success paved the way for similar shows, such as “Duck Dynasty,” but unfortunately coincided with the cancellation of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” in 2012.

Even after the cancellation of their A&E show, the Chapman family continued to shine as reality stars. They starred in the CMT spinoff called “Dog and Beth: On the Hunt” which had three successful seasons. The show documented their journey across the country working alongside professional bail bondsmen in various cities.

Ms. Chapman leaves behind a loving family including her husband, 10 children and stepchildren, numerous grandchildren, and a great-grandchild, according to Ms. Sheldon. Sadly, a stepdaughter preceded her in death.

The production of a new show named Dog’s Most Wanted was underway, featuring a couple tracking down some of the country’s most wanted fugitives. The unscripted series was produced by Dorsey Pictures and announced by WGN America in January. However, its future is uncertain, and it remains unclear whether the show will air this year. Notably, Dog’s Most Wanted marks the network’s first unscripted series in over five years and a teaser trailer was released earlier this month, which you can view below.
