There was a big surprise announcement during Wednesday night’s season premiere of the A&E hit “Duck Dynasty,” reports Variety.
This season, the show’s 11th, also will be the program’s last. “Ending the show was a joint decision between the cast and the network,” Variety says, adding, “Knowing that the series would be coming to an end, the Robertson family decided to make the announcement at the top of the new season so that fans could enjoy the final episodes and the ‘Duck Dynasty’ holiday specials. “
The story also notes that “‘Duck Dynasty’ premiered in March 2012 and quickly became a pop culture phenomenon, ranking as the most-watched nonfiction series in cable TV history. The show still remains the top show on A&E among total viewers.”
