What Happened to Pawn Stars?

March 14, 2024

Since the premiere of Pawn Stars in 2009, the History Channel series has become a hit with viewers. The show follows the Harrison family at their Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas. The show stars Rick Harrison, his son Corey, and Austin “Chumlee” Russell. The late Richard Harrison, known as the Old Man, started the store with his son. However, his daughter Joanne filed a lawsuit against Harrison in 2022 claiming that she was cheated out of her share of the company.

Fans have come to love the recurring experts called in to help assess the items brought into the shop. Whether it is an antiquarian or an appraiser, these people add some of the most interesting aspects to the show. In fact, some of them have become so popular that they have even got their own spin-off shows.

As the show has gone on, there have been many ups and downs with cast members. For instance, Chumlee has always been a fan-favorite thanks to his hilarious banter with the Harrisons. But his star seemed to be on the wane when he was involved in a nude photo scandal.

Then in 2016, the rumors began that his time at the shop was limited. But it turned out that this wasn’t the case, and he was just on a hiatus. His absence was for personal reasons. He was dealing with drug addiction issues. However, he is back now and is working on a new pawn shop in Atlanta.
