Fugitives You Better Run -- The Dog is BACK!

2/19/2008 2:37 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Duane "Dog" Chapman will be back in business and back on the air on A&E. Woof!

A network official confirms to TMZ that the show is going back into production, but they've not yet set a premiere date. As of now, they're gearing up -- big time -- in Hawaii and production will begin ASAP. Makeup artists and camera crews have been hired, and houses and cars have been rented, all for the return of the show.

A&E had suspended production on "Dog the Bounty Hunter" indefinitely after a recording surfaced featuring Chapman making racial slurs. Chapman immediately began a tour of forgiveness, working with CORE and other groups to promote racial equality. We're told network execs were "very pleased" with Dog's attempt to make amends and his reaching out to members of the African American community.

A&E isn't just making this decision out of the goodness of their hearts either. The show was insanely popular for the network, here and internationally -- airing in over 20 countries.

I'm so happy Dog is coming back!
there are worse people in the world who have done a lot more than what he did.
I'm not saying that what he said was right,because it wasn't,bt at least he apologized and is moving on.

I love the show,and nothing they do can make me think any less of them all.

somebody has to pick up Britt's crackhead friends,hehehe

I Personally have a lot of respect for Duane Chapman "THE DOG". He does the work that is needed by a lot of legal courts and other people. I also know, he does a lot of work that he does not get credit for.This is done under Federal Warrants and he never brags about any of that. This is first hand experience as he is involved in a Search on a Federal Warrant and has spoken to my daughter in a Business Place about a Thief of a Boss that has hurt many a family in the process.

People hold your nasty remarks to yourself if you do not know the MAN and the whole story of his life and what he truly believes in. It may be a little more out of the main stream but he GETS the job done.

If I were taken into custody by dog and Beth, I would cry my eyes out. Eventually, after accusing me of taking money from her kids mouth and calling me a no good piece of human dog crap, she would eventually calm downd and give me a moral lecture and hug me. At which point my face would be buried in those huge Ta-Ta's that definately need to be enlarged.
