'Duck Dynasty' to resume filming with Phil Robertson, A&E announces

The A&E Network announced Friday it would resume filming “Duck Dynasty” with Phil Robertson and the rest of his family next spring.

Robertson had been indefinitely suspended by the network on Dec. 18 for comments he made about homosexuality in an interview with GQ Magazine.

The removal of the 67-year-old family patriarch triggered support from gay rights organizations but objections from many fans of the show, including such political figures as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

There was no immediate response from the Robertson family to A&E’s announcement.

The fifth season of the family series originally had been scheduled to start Jan. 15 but until Friday’s announcement,its future had been uncertain.

In a statement released late Friday afternoon, A&E said, “While Phil's comments made in the (GQ) interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the ‘coarse language’ he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would ‘never incite or encourage hate.’"

The network added that “Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family, a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A&E Networks also feel strongly about.

“So after discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family.”

“Duck Dynasty” is the top-rated reality program on cable, according to the Hollywood Reporter, with an average 13.4 million viewers and a marketing franchise in such outlets as Walmart, Sears and Cracker Barrel restaurants – which briefly removed the “Dynasty” items after Robertson’s suspension.

Remember when dano kept saying stuff like this?

 

"...with the GOP running to defend the bigots,
the Duck family is morphing from that fun TV family we once liked into the next Chick-Fil-A,
which means 47% of America likes you and 53 percent no longer does.

That means their audience will go from 15 million to 7 million."

I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing was a publicity stunt by A&E

Yeah, I guess the gays will have to settle for their huge wins in the courts with the repeal of DADT, and equal marriage rights. And you have your favorite cartoon characters. How old are you? :D

What Robertson said was hateful and vile. I still have a hard time wondering how in the 21st century that some one can slander a group of people for being themselves.

Are pedophiles born pedophiles? Can you slander them for being themselves?

Guess A and Es definition of indefinite=less than 2 weeks.

Yeah, I can. Pedophiles may have been born that way, but they wish to have sex with children who are too young to make an informed, consentual decision. Two consenting adults are another matter. If you can't see the difference, then I am going to assume you are just being willfully ignorant.
