With waning ratings and continued controversy surrounding the Robertson family, Facebook fans were beginning to worry that, less than a year after Phil Robertson’s GQ fiasco, Duck Dynasty might be over for good. But Alan Robertson has been kind enough to inform Twitter followers that his family will continue filming for at least one more year.
Duck Dynasty critics will surely be disappointed to learn that the show is back for at least another two seasons. According to Alan Robertson, A&E is hoping to keep the famous family on board through 2015 and possibly even longer. In a recent interview with The Shreveport Times, Alan explained, “We know we’re locked in for at least another full year — through 2015. Beyond that, we really don’t know.”
The Duck Dynasty star added that, although viewers were a bit disappointed by the show’s last few episodes, A&E producers are looking to punch things up with several intriguing story lines. “We have recommitted this year — both our family and the network production crew — to putting out some really good stories from our family that we can all enjoy.”
It makes sense for A&E to stick with the Duck Dynasty crew for now. After all, while the show has failed to recapture the magic of ‘Till Duck Do Us Part — the episode that achieved a record 12 million viewers — it still averaged a respectable 4.3 million viewers per episode during season 6. Compare that to other reality shows on cable and it’s clear that Duck Dynasty is a good investment.
