NEW YORK, NY – June 8, 2015 – A&E Network’s #1 original series “Duck Dynasty” and the original real-life series “Country Buck$” return this June for more wild family antics. A one-hour special “Duck Commander: Making the Musical” airs Wednesday June 17th at 9PM ET/PT followed by a new season of “Duck Dynasty” Wednesday, June 24th at 9:30PM ET/PT and new back-to-back half hour episodes of “Country Buck$” at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT.
“Duck Dynasty” follows the Robertson family as they face new challenges with their unique, down-home charm. This season, the Robertson clan is growing. John Luke prepares to marry Mary Kate and his family is there to help with the important events leading up to the big day. Additionally, the family throws a July 4th barbeque that ends with Jase’s homemade fireworks display and Uncle Si is honored by the veterans association and given his own exhibit at a local military museum.
In the premiere episode, the family throws a fun-spirited engagement party for John Luke, Mary Kate, and her parents in order to bring the two families together. Before the party, Willie and the guys take John Luke golfing in an attempt to impart their inimitable marital advice.
“Country Buck$” returns for an exciting new season following the Busbice clan as they strive to perfect their high-tech hunting innovations, family-style. Brothers Matt and Ryan have grown their small hunting gear business into a multi-million dollar wildlife sporting empire. This season, with an expanding company and opposite personalities, the brothers find it difficult to see eye to eye when it comes to making business decisions.
In the season premiere, Matt plans to take a secret detour while on a business trip to see his friend and country singer star Luke Bryan in concert. Suspicious that Matt might try to mix business with pleasure, Ryan sends T-Carr along to babysit.
