    Is Duck Dynasty going to be back for another full season. Why don’t
    A&E network quite taking it off and putting it back on Soon or
    later people are going to stop watch A&E all together.If that happens
    Cable & Dish companies will not renew A&E network contact when
    it runs out.

    This show is so out of character for me but I love it. No little chuckles but good hardy belly laughs. I also think under the beards and long hair are some real good looking guys. Just look at their nice features.

    I’ve logged-on almost daily, just to see if there has been any news on the renewal of this series. SURPRISE TODAY!! I’m THRILLED!! As a small business entrepreneur from Cape Cod, and a real “family girl”, I love everything about this program! In particular, the very witty commentary from Jase and Si, found in each episode…THANK YOU for making a yankee girl smile, every time.
