The Chapmans rose to fame in 2004 with "Dog the Bounty Hunter", which followed their family and their bounty hunting careers. In 2015 Doug and Beth starred in a spin-off series "Dog and Beth: On the Hunt" which ran until 2017.

Later that year a two-hour special aired called "Dog and Beth: Fight of their Lives" which focused on Beth's throat cancer diagnosis.

Duane and Beth have spent more than three decades in the bail bond industry and starred in over 130 episodes of the original series.

In January, the pair signed a deal for another series 'Dog's Most Wanted', the trailer for which showed Beth in a hospital bed.

"My wife, the love of my life, is fighting for her life and instead of being at home helping her, I'm out here looking for you," Chapman says in the short clip. "So I'm warning you in advance, may God have mercy on you when I catch you. Because I won't."
