New episodes of “Duck Dynasty” are officially back on the docket and will return to A&E on Aug. 14, 2013. However this year, a new cast member is set to join the family.
Alan Robertson, who had been the only Robertson brother not featured on the show, will reportedly leave his job as a full-time pastor in order to join the popular reality series, according to The New York Post. Of course, Alan is also the only brother to not have a beard as well.
Alan has never appeared on “Duck Dynasty” and told the paper that “What I do for our church — you see, it’s a pretty good-sized 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 the interview that he thinks A&E will gradually introduce the rest of his family into the show, consisting of wife Lisa, as well as their two daughters Anna and Alex, as well as their two granddaughters.
