Animal Planet has announced that they’re ready to kick off the second season of Hillbilly Handfishin’, their unique fishing show. The cable channel renewed the TV series for another round of episodes back in April and ordered seven installments.
The first season had 14 installments so that may be an indication that Animal Planet is feeling unsure about Hillbilly Handfishin’s future.
