A&E has decided to resume filming Ducky Dynasty later this spring "with the entire Robertson family.
Variety Magazine reports the network released a statement:
After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family. We at A&E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold. But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one mans views. It resonates with a large audience because it is a show about family a family that America has come to love. As you might have seen in many episodes, they come together to reflect and pray for unity, tolerance and forgiveness. These are three values that we at A E Networks also feel strongly about.
The network suspended Phil Robertson earlier this month after remarks he made regarding homosexuality and race in an interview with GQ magazine.
