History has renewed the reality TV show "Swamp People" for a second season, reports UPI.com. The show, which returns March 31, is set in the Louisiana bayou country.
According a statement from History, "Swamp People" focuses on a hidden world: "Deep in southern Louisiana there are nearly 1 million acres of flooded forest, marshland and bayous unlike anyplace else in the United States. … A hardy breed of swamp people knows the secrets of this dangerous, mysterious territory. Most are Cajun descendants of French-speaking settlers who came from Canada in the 1700s — and their way of life has been fundamentally the same for generations. Hunting, especially alligator hunting, remains a major source of their livelihood."
The premiere of "Swamp People" last year was History’s best original series debut in all key demographics with 4.2 million total viewers.
