There’s some scandal stirring up at the swamp. It’s been reported that several castmembers of the History Channel’s reality series Swamp People were cut from season seven, which is currently in production.
Now, fans of the show are taking the series’ social media accounts to protest the changes.
Swamp People, which premiered in 2010, follows a group of Louisiana natives who hunt alligators in the Atchafalaya Swamp.
Back in August, castmembers Jeromy Pruitt, David LaDart, and Queen Gator Liz announced on their respective Facebook pages they would not be returning for season seven of the History Channel series.
Fans have expressed disappointment in reaction to the cast cuts, with some saying they will no longer watch the series. On the series’ official Facebook page, one fan commented, “Without Bruce, Ron, Willie, Junior and Liz the new season holds no interest.”
No word yet on when season seven will premiere.
From Jeromy Pruitt and David LaDart, on their Facebook page:
Just wanted to let everyone one know that we just got the call from Swamp People on History that we were cut from the show. We had a great time an met so many wonderful people. Thank you to all the fans. You haven’t seen the last of Jeromy Pruitt and David LaDart aka the SWAMP LEGENDS”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Swamp People? Will you watch the series without these castmembers?
