Duane Chapman announced some big news for fans of "Dog the Bounty Hunter" and its spinoff series. After "Dog's Most Wanted" ended after one season on WGN, Chapman said back in November that he would be creating a new show that would heavily feature his 12 kids. He was a guest on the "Always Evolving With Coach Mike Bayer" podcast, and revealed the details of the new series.

Chapman said the new show will be called "Dog's Dirty Dozen" and will follow the lives of his children, along with himself. "Most Wanted" came to an end last September after WGN announced that it was pivoting to a three-hour primetime news show so no longer had a slot for the show.

The one season of that show documented the death of Beth Chapman, and Dog didn't wanna end his run of TV shows on such a sad note.

"The last network was Dog's Most Wanted with WGN. We broke all records. I'm not just saying, 'Dog! Dog!' Not me, the family," Chapman said on the podcast. "It was about Beth and her final days. Now, we have the show. We're all back together. Because when a tragedy like that happens in your family, you gotta pull together. So, it's called Dog's Dirty Dozen."

The focus of the show will still be the family's bounty hunting business, although they aren't filming right now amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


"Once it opens up, we're coming back," Chapman said. He went on to reveal that show will be the last time the whole family will be together on a reality TV show. And it won't include just him and his kids, "two grandkids in their 20s who are in bounty hunting" are also on the show.

It is still unknown what network is going to pick up the show, or when it may premiere.

Following the tragic passing of Beth last year, things have turned around for Chapman in 2020 after he announced that he is engaged to his girlfriend Francie Frane.

"I need a partner," Chapman told PEOPLE shortly after he made the news public. "I've said it before. There will never be another Mrs. Dog. There is not. Francie couldn't do that. There will be a last Mrs. Chapman. If Beth was here, and saw Francie and saw how she was raised, her morality and this and that, Beth would say, 'Big daddy, don't lose her.'"
