The future of American Pickers
The original American Pickers show is currently in its 25th season and has now aired more than 370 episodes in the last 14 years.
This places American Pickers in good company, as the show’s run on the air now rivals shows like Bob’s Burgers (which has aired 238 episodes in the last 12 years), Storage Wars (which has aired 339 episodes over the course of 15 years) and even The Bachelor (which has aired 289 episodes throughout the last 21 years).
And while some fans are worried that American Pickers and its spin-off may run out of treasure-hunting, rare-find-picking content soon at this rate, it seems like the show’s stars and its network has other plans.
Wolfe announced on his Instagram account that American Pickers had been picked up for another 40 episodes in December of 2023.
And although this announcement preceded the premiere of the 25th season of the original American Pickers, and the most recent 7th season of American Pickers: Best Of, it confirms that new episodes of this fan-favorite show will be airing on our televisions for many seasons to come.
