American Pickers' Danielle Colby Is Holding Out Hope For A Spin-Off

There are a couple of reasons why "American Pickers" has maintained such a sizable fan base over the years. First and foremost, people want to see what unique treasures the crew stumbles upon next. Since the show debuted in 2010, the team has come across plenty of weird, wacky items, from vintage motorcycles to antique Coca-Cola signs. Mike Wolfe and crew have a soft spot for old toys and ancient car parts that just need a little tender love and care to start working again. 

However, the items themselves are only part of the story. Then you have the people working on the picking crew, which for the longest time consisted of Wolfe and Frank Fritz. Fritz was famously fired from the show after a nasty fallout, but Wolfe and his brother are still out there hunting the countryside for the next big find. He also still has help from Danielle Colby, who's worked at his shop, Antique Archaeology, for a long time at this point. While Colby holds down the fort, Wolfe's usually the one out on the road hunting for treasure. 

But Colby has developed a passionate fan base all her own. And by the sound of it, she wouldn't say no to a spin-off either. 

Danielle Colby is seeing what happens

Danielle Colby was pretty much an instant standout when "American Pickers" came out over a decade ago. She's a rockabilly princess with cool tattoos and intricate knowledge of antiques, so it makes sense viewers would take to her kindly. Even as far back as 2012, when Colby did an interview with Miami New Times, she was asked about the potential for a Colby-centric spin-off, and she seemed to like the sound of that idea. 

She elaborated, "One never knows what will happen in the future. I highly doubt that Antique Archaeology is the last job I'll ever have in my life, though it is definitely the coolest job I've had to date. It all depends on when my time there has run its course." She went on to talk about how she felt she owed Mike Wolfe for giving her the opportunity to work for him and be part of the reality series. She certainly didn't have any plans on spinning off at the time, and seeing how she's still part of "American Pickers," she obviously likes where she's at for the time being. 

She concluded, "I have a contract, and I'll of course honor that contract. I guess that's a sugar-coated way of saying I'd love a spin-off." Suffice it to say, if "American Pickers" ever comes to an end, there would definitely be a built-in fanbase who would follow Colby anywhere.
