Is Greg Shook from Appalachian Outlaws still alive?

There seems to be a lot of controversy surrounding the question: “Is Greg Shook Dead?”.  It seems to link to an obituary written in 2015 about a clean-shaven man named Gregory Greg Eugene Shook from North Carolina. That made many fans bewildered that he had passed away

To be clear, I don’t think Greg is dead, he is still alive. It is true that the man mentioned in the obituary looks quite similar to the Outlaw’s Shook and has a name that is almost identical to that of the men who appeared on the show, but he is not the character.

In addition, Our Greg Shook still maintained his Facebook page in 2019, and he also got married that year. In some snooping on the page of his wife’s Facebook account, I found a few pictures of Greg that were dated into the year 2020. However, nothing was posted in the following months. It is impossible to tell for certain what Greg’s current status is, but we can at least say that he did not pass away in 2015.

What Happened To Appalachian Outlaws?

To date, there are only two seasons of Appalachian Outlaws. After the first two seasons’ success, fans also expect the third season. On the internet, there are lots of questions about “Is Appalachian Outlaws cancelled?” or ” Will there be another season of Appalachian Outlaws?”

My answer to your questions is that Appalachian Outlaws has been canceled by History. Appalachian Outlaws Season 2 will be its final season. History has no plans for the next season, but anything can happen. 

The possibility of a Season 3

The show’s creator and star, Stephen Merchant, is open to the possibility of a Season 3 that could bring the characters back. A recent interview he gave to Radio Times revealed the following:
“I love the characters, I like the world. I don’t know how long you could believe that they’re still doing community service but I suppose it’s like Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, where they were always building a different house in different parts of the world.

So hopefully there’s a way to keep bringing them back, particularly as I love working with this cast and as I say, once you’ve created a world and you’ve got characters that you enjoy writing for you sort of want to keep on milking that cow.”

As the series has received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, it will probably be renewed for a third season. The production of the third season of Appalachian Outlaws may also depend on the actors’ schedules and finding the perfect story idea to guarantee the show continues. As a result, it might be a little while before we see the show on our TV screens again.
