“Storage Wars” Season 10 premiered with back-to-back episodes without auctioneers Dan and Laura Dotson. In their place was Emily Wears, a new face with a new process. The regulars gossiped about it, but there were many changes for the cast; this was only one of them. We published a list of what’s different this season.
Without notice, the Dotsons were missing, and then as quickly as they disappeared, they were back in place. The following couple of weeks has been a mix of Wears and the Dotsons. We reached out to the couple’s representative to ask if they had any comments about the situation and if they were coming back on a regular basis. Here’s some of what they had to say.
“Laura & I enjoy being the Auctioneers on Storage Wars. Team Dotson currently in its 10th seasons and 7 years of Auction Action and love every moment of it. We are still auctioneering and are a major part of this successful show. We believe that the budget was tight and the network had to make some changes. Hopefully not forever!”
Did the Dotsons get feedback from fans of the show? Yes, they did!
“The response that we are getting from our fans is disbelief and anger. Many are sadden and threaten they will no longer tune in. This is something we do not want to happen. We want Storage Wars to go on for another decade and we very much want to be a part of it! We want our viewers to get excited to see their favorite Storage Wars cast members and what’s in the box! Keep tuning in! Catch Team Dotson on back to back episodes this Wednesday, May 3rd., 9/8c. Two new shows every week on A&E!”
Dan and Laura are active on social media, for those that are interested. Here’s a few links to their pages.
