After a month of delay in the release of the premiere episode of season eight, A&E’s well-loved series, “Duck Dynasty,” is finally coming back on June 24.
The Robertson family will continue their story from last season’s finale, “Sweet Home Louisiana.” In the episode, viewers have seen Jep dealing with health problems as he previously had a seizure during a hunting trip and was hospitalized. The new season might also delve into new developments of Jep and Jessica’s relationship, Venture Capital Post shared.
In the last season, viewers were able to witness some of Jep’s struggles. With the release of the book he co-authored with his wife entitled, “The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God: What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness,” the couple reportedly revealed more of their secrets and life stories.
A report by Zap2it indicated that the new season will revolve around John Luke and Mary Kate’s engagement and preparations for the wedding. During the premiere, the family will have an engagement party for the couple and Willie and the other guys will take John Luke to golf in order to give him some marital advice. The series may also show the veterans’ association honoring Uncle Si by giving him an exhibit at a local military museum.
Fans who cannot wait for episode one can tune in on June 17 at A&E TV for the airing of “Duck Commander: Making the Musical,” which show behind the scenes footage on how the story of Robertsons based on the book by Willie and Korie, “The Duck Commander Family: How Faith, Family, and Ducks Built a Dynasty,” was adapted for the stage.
In the the special, Willie proudly shared that he was the coach for the show.
“I’m kind of the hair coach, the dialect coach, and watch the story, too. It’s pretty weird. To think of where we’ve come from to now have a musical about our lives, it’s weird,” he said.
The musical was shown in Las Vegas early this year, Nola reported.
