AMERICAN Pickers fans said they are boycotting the upcoming season unless fired host Frank Fritz returns to the show.
The History Channel show recently revealed upcoming filming dates and locations with no mention of whether the former host would be joining the program.
On the show's official Facebook page, a post was shared announcing that their expected to film new episodes in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama in February of next year.
However, fans took to the comments section claiming that they have no plans to watch the upcoming season if Frank doesn't make an appearance.
One user replied to the post: "I'll watch the next episode that features Frank Fritz…. until then, no thanks."
A slew of others agreed with one writing: "I am also out!!!," and another echoing the statement with: "No Frank…I'm done as well…"
The comments continued with fans rallying behind the fired star.
"Sadly we have not tuned in since Frank was left in the cold."
"I haven't watched in a long time and honestly I don't miss it. #bringbackfrank"
"Lost interest in it…. Frank & Mike together was more interesting. Don't care for his brother …not watching any longer"
"Sorry, there is now a big void that Frank filled. I will only be watching old episodes."
American Pickers producer Sarah Perkins opened up about the latest season to The Advocate earlier this week.
She stated that she has been "looking for leads throughout the state, specifically interesting characters with fascinating items and lots of them."
Sarah added: "The way we find people and collections for our show is through spreading the word far and wide so that people know we’re coming to town."
Due to the pandemic, network officials have assured that the history show will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming.
The guidelines have been outlined by Louisiana and the Centers for Disease Control.
Season 23 will feature co-hosts Mike, 57, and his brother Robbie Wolfe, 61, along with Danielle Colby, 44.
'LIFE IS GOOD'
Back in August, Frank previously told The Sun he was hoping for his own spinoff show after being fired back in July.
He added: "It was maybe for four hours, but it was enough. The next day I went to a meeting and I got right back on track.
“I don’t think I’ll ever have a drink again because I don't like the feeling anymore and some of the dumb things that I did.”
Frank continued: “I’m feeling really good. Life is good and I’d like to get back into the swing of things. I wish I had done it five years ago, I would have been a different person.
“It was the best thing for me and I wish I had done it sooner or I wouldn’t be in the position that I am right now.”
Recently, the Sun exclusively revealed Frank has been behind on property taxes of his Iowa farmhouse, which cost about $155,000.
According to the Scott County Treasurer’s Office, Frank has a past due amount of $1,752, which also included interest, on his home.
The taxes were due since the beginning of September.
He also owed the second half of the yearly payment in the amount of $1,701, which has a deadline of March 1, 2022.
Frank bought the Iowa farmhouse for $130,000 back on May 14, 2010, and then the rest of the property was purchased in 2013 for $25,000.
He also has a tax debt of about $843, which also came with interest.
This payment has been overdue since the beginning of September as well.
He has another payment for $818 scheduled for the beginning of March in 2022.
