Hoarders, which was facing cancellation at the end of its eighth season in April, was renewed for its ninth season in May, and is now filming new episodes and casting.
However, season nine is being viewed by Hoarders cast and crew as its final season, people close to the show told me.
The show has been casting, including looking for few specific storylines, such as inherited hoards and, oddly, haunted hoards. Because it often helps people in urgent crisis, the show continues to cast during production, so people can apply for Hoarders’ help whether their hoard has ghosts or is just overwhelming.
Sunday, organizer Cory Chalmers posted a photo from a location, captioning it, “Hoarders, season 9. Let the transformations begin!”
