What Happened to Frank Fritz?

March 12, 2024

frank fritz has not been seen on the hit history channel show american pickers since march of 2020 and the news that he had suffered a debilitating stroke in july 2022 was devastating for many fans. The reality star was unable to care for himself and had to be placed under guardianship with his former co-star Mike Wolfe. Now a friend of his has revealed that both men had a chance to meet up on memorial day weekend and have resolved their long-standing rift.

The pair was able to spend time together and the longtime friend of Fritz's told the Quad City Times that both seemed happy and in good spirits. The friend also noted that Mike told Frank that no one could replace him and that the duo were a perfect team.

While the pair may be on good terms now, it doesn't appear as though things are going to change any time soon with regard to Fritz appearing on the popular show. Currently, the former Iowan is not in a position to be filmed on location and is still under guardianship as he is unable to make decisions for himself.

However, the good news is that he seems to be making steady progress with his recovery and is able to be filmed while out in public. In fact, just a few days ago, the former star was spotted out with friends in the Quad Cities region. It was the first time he had been out in public since his debilitating stroke. He was enjoying a meal at Iron Horse Social Club, which took over some of his former antique store space in Savanna, Illinois.
