Is American Restoration Cancelled on the History Channel?

American Restoration

Is American Restoration cancelled? The television series was featured on the History Channel, and may be still. The last known episode was April 1st, 2016, and the future of the show is up in the air.

American Restoration centers around the owner of a restoration shop named Rick Dale. The idea behind American Restoration is that the owner Rick Dale would take American memorabilia and restore it to its original condition. The number of complaints about Mr. Dale may have led to the show’s cancellation (and thus the rumor about American Restoration cancelled). At the very least, Rick Dale has been removed from the show and others are taking his place as restorers of American memorabilia. This is due to a number of mysterious and confusing incidents that have taken place.

It is not known exactly why that Rick Dale was removed from the show, but it could have something to do with conflicts between Rick and several of the customers that he was serving. According to one report, Rick Dale allegedly did not make good on a contract to restore a jukebox at a famous Route 66 venue. This fact and Mr. Dale’s egotistical personality may have been a recipe for disaster for his presence on the show. The stormy nature of Rick Dale’s personality both made and may have destroyed the show as it was. It is not known how popular the series may be in it’s new form with a new cast.

There seems to have been 5 restoration shops that have taken his place according to news reports. American Restoration is a spin-off of “Pawn Stars”, a wildly popular reality television series. The first 6 seasons were recorded in Las Vegas, and the series included cameo appearances by Sammy Hagar and Billy Joel as well as magician David Copperfield and others.

The show was pretty popular for a while but ratings started to dip as the conflicts ensued, and it is well known that as TV shows start to decline in ratings that it is pretty much done for. There were several different attempts to revive the show in one form or another, and the last known efforts were to expand the cast to include a number of new restoration crews and personalities. The future of the show is in question for certain, but it did hold its spot in the American reality television series genre.

So, is American Restoration cancelled? Or will there be American Restoration Season 8 in 2017?

      Please do not cancel the Dale show. I look forward to it. It was so amazing to see him to bring something back to its glory days one again. It was nice to see once how simple life was back in the day. It is one of my favorite shows.

        I totally agree with Bruce. I loved Rick and his crew. I don’t care about what happened, the rumors, or whatever bs the History Channel thought. This was a truest unique reality show. I tried watching the revamped version without Rick. It was stupid. Not even close to the original. I changed the channel in 5 minutes. Nice try HC.
        Get past the bs, and listen to the true fans the that loved an original series that really stood out among the hundreds of lame reality shows. BRING BACK RICK!!!

      Loved Dale and the show! There was none other than Rick Dale and His personaility yo handle the show. Great disappointment!

      People who have amazing skills as he goes take pride kkkn hijis work and are often perfectionists so, when people critique his work, he may have a right to be disgruntled.

      We never saw him as temperamental on the show. He made the show!

      Put it back in the air!

    You have to bring back Rick Dale in American Restoration! My husband doesn’t want to watch home improvement shows exclusively, & I don’t want to watch news exclusively…SAVE OUR MARRIAGE & BRING RICK BACK IN HIS ORIGINAL SHOW! We both appreciated the history in the show, & Rick brought history to life! Seriously, he needs to be in our living rooms! Rick Dale & his talented crew not only restored pieces of America’s past, they were helping to restore American pride. Something our country could use more of.
