Where are the Dukes now?
After The Dukes of Hazzard came to an end, Tom Wopat continued to act on stage and the small screen. He also released several singles as a musical artist, including an album in 2017.
John Schneider kept steady work as an actor and notably appeared in Smallville and TV film projects after his famous role. He also released several country singles in the 1980s, which performed well.
Catherine Bach’s role in Dukes of Hazzard created a sex symbol. Following the show’s success, Catherine insured her legs for a million dollars. She also posed for a poster that sold over 5 million copies. Since her famous role, Catherine has remained a working actress.
The Dukes of Hazzard remains a pop culture phenomenon.
With 147 episodes spanning nearly a decade, The Dukes of Hazzard made a significant mark on American culture. The ‘69 Dodge Charger named the General Lee, which was used by Bo and Luke Duke in the show, remains one of the most iconic cards in pop-culture history. For many, the car has become a symbol of hope and resilience, representing the spirit of adventure and the courage to stand up for what is right.
An unexpected but lasting impact from the show was Catherine Bach’s infamous denim shorts, affectionately nicknamed “Daisy Dukes.” Bach’s contributions to entertainment, fashion, and culture continue to be celebrated by her fans around the world.
