POPULAR couple Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe were stars in 21 seasons together on American Pickers.
The disappearance of Frank from the show’s March 2020 episode was a puzzlement to fans. He was not addressed by the other star.
What made Frank Fritz quit American Pickers?
Season 21 of American Pickers was to be a regular season, with Frank and Mike exploring the USA in search of worthwhile antiques.
Burlesque Queen was the seventh episode. It featured both men as usual, but Frank was absent by episode 8.
His co-stars, Mike, and Danielle Colby, didn’t address Frank’s absence and the season went on without Frank.
Frank stated that he didn’t leave the show and that he was eager for the cast to return.
At the time, he said: “I would love to return to the show. It was 11 years. I am now 100% recovered and ready to go back on the show.
Frank claimed that the network would not give him an answer regarding his return.
They speak from both their ears. “It would be like me telling people I want to go back on TV and then tomorrow saying, ‘I never spoke that, I never talked about that.'” He continued.
“The showrunner called me on October 11, last year, and he said that he would call you back tomorrow. But I haven’t heard anything from them at all.” They haven’t reached me.”
Are Frank and Mike Wolfe good friends?
Frank spoke out about his feuding with Mike Wolfe , arrogant co-star and claimed that they had not spoken for two years.
According to The Sun, he said he hadn’t spoken to Mike in “two years” and that his friend from high school had not called him to let him know how he was doing.
After Frank’s stroke in July 2022, the feud appears to be diminishing.
The American Pickers star posted on Instagram: “I have been very private over the past year regarding Frank’s life, and the journey that he’s been along.
“There have been many opinions about Frank and mine friendship and the show.
“But now is not a time to correct the record. “Now is the right time to pray for my friend.”
Mike wrote: Frank has had a stroke and is now in the hospital
Keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Frank, I hope you get through this okay. I love you buddy.”
Frank was allegedly “sprawled on a floor” at the time of the incident.
Frank Fritz’s father Bill Fritz exclusively stated to The Sun at the beginning of August that his son was in “stable” condition.

Diann was taken to the hospital the next day and treated for “third-degree burns.”
She claimed that he had changed the locks on the Iowa home where they lived together after the couple divorced.
Diann demanded $50,000 and claimed Frank was “negligent” in the operation fireworks.
