Dog The Bounty Hunter Is Grateful To Be Able To See Beth Chapman ‘Smile Again’ On New Series: It’ll Be ‘Bittersweet’
The new series for Dog 'Duane' Chapman and the late Beth Chapman's show will premier next month and will show the couple on the hunt as Beth battles cancer. Dog has told sources that he's grateful "being able to see her smile again."
Sources told Hollywood Life that Duane is looking forward to watching his new series that features both him and Beth hunting down fugitives. The bounty huntress passed away at the age of 51 on June 26th of this year following a two year battle with throat cancer.
The source said, "It will be bittersweet for Dog to relive the memories of Beth when their show premieres next month, Dog is still very much grieving over the loss of Beth, who was his soulmate, best friend and partner in crime for most of his life."
"He actually can’t wait to see what fans and friends of Beth think about the show. The show as time goes by will always represent what Beth would want and she will be a part of every episode in one way or another."
Beth was fighting cancer as she filmed for the series. In an earlier trailer, Beth had explained why she was on the hunt while battling cancer, "Once you find out that it's an incurable lung cancer, there's no stage 5," Beth says in the trailer. " If I’m going to die, I’m going to die in my boots.”
The source also told Hollywood life, “Beth was very clear that she wanted to be on the show, it was her choice all the way and her main reason for wanting to do it was for her family." Duane 'Dog' Chapman also confirmed this when giving a eulogy at one of Beth's memorial services.
"This show is like one last gift from her. Being able to see her smile again, hear her laugh, it’s such a blessing. Her spirit is still very much with them but it’s a big comfort having all the footage from the show, the whole family is so grateful to have it.”
