Duck Dynasty, A&E’s smash hit reality series, will welcome the first beardless brother to the cast when the premiere of the series' fourth season airs Wednesday August 14 at 10 p.m.

The show about the Robertson clan will be adding a new face to their brand. This season, Alan Robertson, son of Phil Robertson, and the only one of Phil’s four sons not already staring in the reality show, joins the family business as the public relations manager this season after leaving his job as a pastor behind. Alan should be easy to spot – he’s missing the signature Duck Dynasty beard! However, Alan hinted that this might easily be rectified during hunting season, when he says he lets his beard grow.

Alan expressed his desire to widen his audience as a pastor earlier this summer.

“What I do for our church… impacts a lot of people, but because of my association with the show, I’ll get to minister to a lot more people. Any person that’s an evangelist, that’s what you want to do, so I had to give this up for something possibly bigger,” Alan said in an interview with the New York Post.

Alan and his wife of almost 30 years, Lisa, will make their debut alongside his parents, Phil and Kay, his Uncle Si, and his brothers Willie Robertson, Jase Robertson and Jep Robertson in the August 14 premiere.
