Poll: Will You Watch the New Season of ‘Duck Dynasty’?
Now that the dust is starting to settle from the recent 'Duck Dynasty' controversy, it's back to business for the cast of the show and their network, A&E.
The show stars the Robertson family, who have made a fortune selling duck calls. Their patriarch, Phil Robertson, was suspended from the program after comments that he made about homosexuals and black people went viral and caused an enormous controversy.
But fans protested his removal from the show with both an online petition and a Facebook page, claiming his First Amendment rights had been violated, while the rest of the family hinted they would not continue filming the show without him. A&E announced last weekend that they had decided to remove his suspension.
“We’re just glad to get back to work. A&E and us are fine,” cast member Willie Robertson says. “The Robertsons, we are looking forward to getting back to making some funny shows and it’s a new year, so we are ready to break in a new year and start it all over again.”
The new season of ‘Duck Dynasty’ will premiere on A&E on Jan. 15 at 10PM ET.
