Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are no longer sharing the American Pickers hosting duties. What happened to the pair, then?
Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe co-starred in the show for 21 seasons, but halfway through season 21, Fritz vanished. Mike and the network made no mention of his absence. Fritz ended up needing back surgery, and after he recovered, History never asked him to play the same part again.
Fritz told The Sun, “I would like to return to the show, but we will see.” “I did it for 11 years, but right now there is a lot of controversy. Whether I return to the show is up to the network. It won’t have any impact on me at all. I stayed at the performance. After I had finished shooting, I underwent minor back surgery, and then the pandemic struck.
Fritz mаy not hаve received the cаllbаck becаuse Mike аnd Fritz were аt odds. Mike’s brother Robbie Wolfe took over аs co-host.
