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.

51. 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.

A & E is going long on the Holy Grail of White Trash again?
Duane and Beth (not her real name) get married on the same day his daughter dies in a stolen car high on heroin. That my friends is the definition of low class.

His show sucks. How can people sit in front of crap like that and let their brains turn to mush? Watch something taht can ACTUALLY have an impact on someone. Not some strupid reality show about an annoying bounty hunter and his pig of a wife. Crap. Just crap.
