American Pickers star Mike Wolfe reveals major new project outside reality show as fans fear series will be canceled

MIKE Wolfe has announced a new construction project outside of American Pickers amid fan theories that the show could face cancelation.

The History Channel show has faced poor ratings in the years since Frank Fritz’s departure.

Now Mike, 58, has announced he is teaming up with the historic board in Tennessee to create a green space in the lot of an old gas station.

The reality star took to his Instagram profile on Tuesday to share a computer-generated photo of the completed project.

In the image, fans could see a clean white building on a brick patio with garden landscaping.

Mike captioned his post: “Getting ready for round two with the historic board in Columbia TN. The goal is creating a green space in the lot of this early 50’s Esso gas station.

“The Buidling itself is only 900 SQR feet. The outdoor space will give more room to the future business and create a inviting outdoor experience. These old Gas stations and Car dealerships matter.”

He continued: “They are a major part of American transportation history and repurposing them in a way to serve the public ensures there place for future generations. #heritagetourism #columbiatn.”


Mike’s new venture came amid fan speculation that American Pickers could be headed for its demise.

Last month, the TV personality posted a video of himself enjoying a day out on social media as the show’s ratings continue to flounder.

The TV star shared the chatty footage on Instagram, showing off a picturesque walk with his dog.

In the clip, Mike shared a calming look at a beautiful field banking the Mississippi River near Natchez, Mississippi.

Throughout the entirety of his filming, the 58-year-old’s pet pooch stayed close as she happily explored the area.

Introducing the area, Mike said: “We are on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. I’m taking Francie for a walk and it’s nice and peaceful, very historic.”

He then showed his followers a large ancient brick wall close to the river.

Explaining the reason for the video, he added: “What I really wanted to show you that I thought was really cool, was… that!

“This is actually a cruise ship that is designed to look like an old paddle wheeler.”

He posted more information about the boat, before encouraging other people to go explore interesting heritage sites near them.

Mike didn’t caption the post but did tag the city of Natchez in case any of his followers wanted to enjoy the same scenery.


The American Pickers star’s fans were quick to voice their admiration for the content.

“Enjoy your day Mike & Francie,” commented one viewer.

Another praised: “Awesome that you share all of this. Have a fantastic day!”

A third history and dog fan added: “Love your appreciation for what was and also what is. It helps shape what will be. Good morning Francie.”


American Pickers returned on Wednesday, January 4.

Thankfully, The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed that ratings increased after this season’s disappointing numbers

The March 8 episode brought in 844,000 viewers, for an episode that featured Mike taking a tour of the Packard Plant property in Detroit, Michigan.

This was up from the prior week’s season low with only 711,000 viewers, even though the season 24 premiere kicked off strong with 943,000 fans watching.

One reason behind the lows may be the absence of fan fave Frank Fritz, with viewers turning to social media to demand him back after he was fired in 2021 and suffered a stroke this past July.
