From a media release:
THE CANADIAN PICKERS HANG UP THEIR COWBOY HATS
- Final Episodes of Canadian Pickers Air on HISTORY in December
- All-Day Marathon Leads into Final Two Episodes on Monday, December 23
Scott Cozens and Sheldon Smithens, the Canadian Pickers, have picked their way from coast to coast, buying and selling unique pieces of Canadian history. Over the course of 52 episodes across four seasons, the Pickers have revealed diverse aspects of Canada’s fascinating past through the objects they bought and the people they met. This December, HISTORY concludes the final season of Canadian Pickers with four new episodes, and a special all-day marathon leading into the final two episodes of the series.
The distinctively Canadian series highlights the regions, people, history and traditions that make the country exceptional. Over the course of the four seasons, the Pickers have met Henri Richard, buying pieces of the tavern formerly owned by the famed Montreal Canadian hockey player; challenged each other to drink the notorious Sour Toe Cocktail at the Sourdough Saloon in Dawson City’s Downtown Hotel; and picked items for the Western-themed country home of Canadian country music star George Canyon. Each episode has told a different story about Canada, bringing to light both the iconic Canadian legends that have made history, and the little-known but equally remarkable stories of the country’s past.
The final four episodes include a first-ever Canadian Pickers event, which sees Scott and Sheldon traveling to the United Kingdom in hopes of buying an iconic Wild West collection with a Canadian twist. On a trip to Nova Scotia, the guys visit the ultimate man cave and make a staggering offer for the entire collection. And in the final episode, a pick from season three is brought full circle, when Scott and Sheldon travel to Kamsack, Saskatchewan to return the long-lost hunting rifle of a First Nations Chief to the Coté First Nation.
The first of the final episodes air on December 2 and 16 at 8pm ET/PT, and on December 23, an all-day Canadian Pickers marathon leads into the final two episodes of the series at 8pm and 9pm ET/PT.
All four seasons of Canadian Pickers can be watched online at www.history.ca, along with interview clips and behind-the-scenes videos. Fans of the series can also visit www.canadianpickers.com to join the Pickers community and browse items up for auction.
