Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz and their team will return to North Carolina and perhaps even McDowell County if the picking is good.

They plan to film episodes of the hit series "American Pickers" throughout North Carolina in March 2021.

The producers sent this statement to The McDowell News: "We understand that with the proliferation of COVID-19, we are all facing very uncertain times. We at American Pickers are taking the pandemic very seriously and will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming as outlined by the state and CDC. While we plan to be in North Carolina this March, we will continue to re-schedule if conditions change for the worse. Regardless, we are excited to continue to reach the many collectors in the area to discuss their years of picking!"
