A&E'S HIT ORIGINAL SERIES "DUCK DYNASTY" RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON WITH 26 ALL-NEW EPISODES PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10 AT 10PM ET/PT
NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 30, 2012 - America's favorite bearded, camo-clad millionaires gather around the dinner table for a second season of the A&E hit series "Duck Dynasty" on Wednesday, October 10 with back-to-back premieres at 10 and 10:30PM ET/PT.
"Duck Dynasty" follows the Robertsons; Louisiana's most dynamic backwoods family. They just happen to have made a fortune on duck calls by turning a backyard business into a multi-million dollar sporting empire. But for Willie Robertson, running a family operation is tough when all your employees would rather be anywhere than the production warehouse. They may be living the American dream, but they're just as busy staying true to their rugged outdoorsman lifestyle and southern roots, approaching each ordinary family affair with a special Robertson-brand of down home practicality and sharp sense of humor. Life goes on in the bayou, but nothing is average in the Robertson household.
In the premiere episode, each family member takes their turn teaching Willie's teenage kids about life. Sadie attempts to learn how to drive and John Luke has a new girlfriend but Phil insists on chaperoning their date and giving them a high school lesson on the dangers of modern-day romance.
