American Chopper

Discovery Channel is bringing back one of its most popular series. Five years after American Chopper ended its 10-year run, it is being revived. The series follows often-feuding father and son motorcycle builders Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. as they build custom motorcycles for high profile clients.

American Chopper was one of Discovery’s most popular series ever,” said Rich Ross, Group President of Discovery. “Everyone is eager to see what the Teutul family has been up to. This winter, you’ll find out.”

Discovery released a statement about American Chopper’s reboot. “The Teutuls have been on a wild ride, and it certainly isn’t ending anytime soon. Paul Sr. has revamped Orange County Choppers – turning it into a complex with a shop, café, bowling alley, restaurant and of course, the showroom – but all that didn’t come without a hefty price tag and he is feeling the burden of a high overhead and a lack of foot traffic,” the statement said. “Meanwhile, Paul Jr. has also felt the sting of a rough economy – with his business built solely on high-dollar custom-builds and commissions becoming tougher to come by, Paul Jr. stresses about the long-term stability of his own shop, Paul Jr. Designs especially now that he has his own family.”

This news is being well-received by fans of the popular series. Many identified with the Teutels often combative relationship and admired their work as well. The series will resume this winter.

In the 2012 series finale, Junior and Senior seemed to patch up their differences. That video clip is below.

It will be interesting to see how their relationship has changed during the show’s five-year hiatus. Have they continued to be agreeable as when the series ended in 2012 or will they return to their combative nature as they rebuild their family business? We will soon find out!
