Phil Robertson to Return to A&E's DUCK DYNASTY in 2014
Variety reports that Phil Robertson will be returning to A&E's Duck Dynasty reality series in 2014, following the recent controversy over anti-gay comments he made in an upcoming issue of GQ magazine.
"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," the network said in a statement.

The controversy erupted last week, when Robertson was suspended from the reality series indefinitely by the A&E network in the wake of his anti-gay comments in the January issue of GQ. Said Robertson, "Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong... Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men."
Since that time, everyone from Charlie Sheen to Sarah Palin to the late night host circuit have weighed in on the controversy.
Season five of Duck Dynasty is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 15, 2014, with back-to-back episodes at 10:00 and 10:30PM ET/PT.
