After a decade on Discovery, American Chopper will come to a series end on December 11 with the upcoming special American Chopper: The Revenge.
The Discovery Channel’s American Chopper will soon end its ten-year run with the Teutul family when the series airs its final episode next month, a four-way bike build-off special called The Revenge.
“After 10 years and 233 episodes of incredible, riveting reality television,” Eileen O’Neill, group president of the Discovery and TLC Networks, told Entertainment Weekly. “American Chopper will be ending its run.”
O’Neill went on to praise the Teutul family for their innovative bike builds and drama since the series began in 2002.
American Chopper was a pioneer in the docu-style reality format when the series debuted in 2002. American Chopper followed the Teutul family, the owners of Orange County Choppers, who later split into two major storylines when Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. had a falling out. The split led Paul Jr. to open his own shop called Paul Junior Designs.
Following the feud, American Chopper was canceled by Discovery but brought it back in 2010 as American Chopper: Junior vs. Senior. Father and son eventually reconciled and the show reverted back to its original title.
In the series finale, Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. will square off against other custom garages, including Jesse James of Outlaw Garage.
American Chopper: The Revenge will air on December 11.
