WGN America Shares Clip of Beth Chapman before Death from Cancer Ahead of New 'Dog's Most Wanted'
On Monday, WGN America took to social media to share another promo teaser ahead of the premiere for "Dog’s Most Wanted." The short clip featured the late Beth Chapman.
In anticipation of the launch of the new bounty hunting series, "Dog’s Most Wanted," WGN America paid tribute to its late star Beth Chapman, 51. The network shared a funny clip where the late star was describing a fugitive.
In preparation for the new series, the network started a four-night marathon of "Dog the Bounty Hunter" over the weekend. Beth was seen reading what one fugitive had hilariously written for his work experience.
The man listed off his previous occupations on the paperwork as, "Lazy. None. My mother is awesome." Her husband, Duane "Dog” Chapman, 66, and the rest of the team were seen laughing in the clip.
The reality star passed away in the middle of June after losing her battle against stage 4 throat cancer. WGN's website revealed that the "Dog the Bounty Hunter" marathon would start on September 1 at 6 p.m. ET and continue through to midnight.
On Monday, the marathon resumed at 6 p.m. ET and continued again through midnight. On Tuesday, the marathon will start at the same time.
On Wednesday, it will start an hour later at 7 a.m. ET with "Dog & Beth: Fight of Their Lives." The short-lived two-hour special originally aired on A&E in 2017.
It chronicled the Chapman's battle with throat cancer which ended with Beth being informed that she was cancer-free. However, last November she tragically found out that the cancer had returned.
The reality star’s fans will then get to see her in more episodes of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” until the first episode of "Dog's Most Wanted" debuts at 9 p.m. ET.
The new episode will be repeated immediately afterward before two more "Dog the Bounty Hunter" episodes follow. Then the new bounty hunting series will airs again at 12 a.m. ET.
