Dog the Bounty HunterCats may not be the only animals with 9 lives. It appears dogs get second chances too. At least that is what is reporting about sullied TV bounty hunter .

An network official confirmed to TMZ that his hugely popular reality show will be going back into production as soon as possible in Hawaii. TMZ reports that supporting people like makeup artists and camera crews have been hired in preparation for the show.

Production of was suspended indefinitely last November after the National Enquirer got a hold of two audiotapes that featured Chapman on a racially-offensive tirade. On the tapes, the 55-year old Chapman is heard using the “N word” several times and demanding that his son break-up with his African American girlfriend or be fired from family bail bond business. A&E’s original decision to suspend production of the show came, in part, because of growing pressure from sponsors. No word if that part of the story has been resolved.

Over the past few months, the born-again Christian and convicted murderer has tried to make amends for his toxic words by working with the African American community to promote racial equality. TMZ says network officials have been pleased with his efforts.

There is no word yet when A&E plans to begin airing new episodes of Dog the Bounty Hunter.
