Duck Dynasty will premiere its nine-episode ninth season on the A&E Network next month.

Duck Dynasty Season 9

Duck Dynasty, the reality TV series about the family behind the lucrative duck call business that’s set in West Monroe, La., will have a shortened ninth season. It will kick off with back-to-back episodes on Jan.13, and run until Feb. 17. The hourlong season finale will be Duck Dynasty’s 100th episode.

Season 9, like past seasons, will follow a number of family storylines. Miss Kay Robertson will get some help from Willie Robertson and Alan Robertson to open up her own bakery. Meanwhile, Jase Robertson will get to know his in-laws a bit better, and Jeb will get some tips from professional wrestler Kurt Angle about his own wrestling.

Perhaps one of the biggest events of the season will be the Robertson family road trip. On the way to bring John Luke Robertson and his new wife Mary Kate Robertson to Liberty University, the family will make a few stops, including one in Nashville to pay a visit to Willie’s pal Colt Ford, the country music rapper.

Over the last couple of years, Duck Dynasty has been at the center of a number of controversies. Most of the bad press has been the direct result of things said by the family patriarch, Phil Robertson. During speaking engagements, he’s made controversial comments about gay people, African-Americas, ISIS, STDs and atheists.

Despite the controversies, Duck Dynasty still does reasonably well in the ratings. Its eighth season was viewed by 3.44 million.
