Since then, Fritz’s condition has not changed, according to either Wolfe or the 56-year-old family man. However, Fritz still has a lengthy recovery ahead of him, according to a Wolfe spokesperson who spoke with People on Monday (July 25).
“American Pickers” premiered on the History Channel in 2010 and followed Fritz and Wolfe as they searched the country for antiques and treasures.
Fritz’s final “American Pickers” episode was released in March 2020. The History Channel reports that he formally left the show in July 2021.
