    According to Deadline, Fritz’s former co-star on the reality show ‘American Pickers‘, Mike Wolfe shared the news on Instagram. He wrote, “I have been very private in the past year in regards to Franks [sic] life and the journey he’s been on.”

    Wolfe added, “There have been lots of opinions in regards to mine and Frank’s friendship and the show but now is not the time to set the record straight. Now is the time to pray for my friend.”

    He continued, “Frank has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital. Please keep him in your hearts and thoughts. Frank, I pray more than anything that you make it through this okay. I love you buddy.”

    The statement is a bit of a surprise to the two’s friendship. Because earlier last year, they were apparently feuding with each other. He reacted to a statement by Wolfe on his exit from the reality series and claimed he was “fed up with past lies.” The two were also not in touch with each other for the past two years.

    Fritz left ‘American Pickers‘ in March 2020, with his final appearance airing the same month. He didn’t return when the show emerged from its pandemic-imposed production hiatus. Fritz was the co-host of the show since it started in January 2010.

    According to reports, the 56-year-old actor decided not to return to the History channel show about a year ago to deal with health problems. Fritz needed a back surgery procedure, and he has a history of Crohn’s disease.

    The reality show follows the hosts who find what is thought to be old beat-up trash and revive it to what it once was. It has 23 seasons and 343 episodes, with a new episode airing every Saturday.

    Wolfe posted on social media when the news of Fritz leaving the show broke out. The former co-host said he would “miss” Fritz and “pray for the very best and all good things for him on the next part of his journey.”
