A&E's most-watched series is back: Duck Dynasty returns with Louisiana's First Family on Wednesday, February 27 with back-to-back premieres at 9 and 9:30PM ET/PT.

Last season, "Duck Dynasty" catapulted itself to become one of TV's biggest phenomena. The season two finale premiered to 6.5 million viewers on December 5, 2012. The episode was also watched by an A&E record 3.9 million adults 18-49, 3.8 million adults 25-54 and 2.0 million adults 18-34, becoming the most-watched series telecast in network history among all key demos. "Duck Dynasty" was also the top trending TV show on Facebook in 2012.

In the third season premiere episode, the Robertson men prepare for the beginning of duck season. Phil has two rituals that don't go over well; a date night with Ms. Kay and abstaining from baths. Meanwhile, the guys carry out their tradition of camping out on the land but the group is quickly divided into those who'll rough it and those who want comfort.

The Robertsons have been busy being America's favorite big, bearded, camo-clad family. Despite their modest lifestyle and homes in the backwoods, this close-knit family has made a fortune on duck calls by turning a backyard business into a multi-million dollar sporting empire. But for Willie Robertson, the company's CEO, running a family operation is tough when all your employees live one distraction at a time and find any excuse to leave The Warehouse. They may be living the rags-to-riches American dream, but they're just as busy staying true to their rugged outdoorsman lifestyle and southern roots. Of course, in this household, even the most ordinary family affair is met with a speciAl Robertson twist of downhome practicality and witty sense of humor. Day to day life in the bayou may be mundane for some, but for the Robertsons, every day brings a new adventure.

"Duck Dynasty" is produced for A&E Networks by Gurney Productions. Executive producers for Gurney Productions are Deirdre Gurney and Scott Gurney. Executive producers for A&E are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Lily Neumeyer.
