The Season Finale of “Swamp People” is upon us tonight. But, when the season began, it was heralded as the final season of the series, upsetting many fans and leading them to ask History Channel, over and over, for answers.
Has History Channel listened it its viewers and renewed the hit series for another season?
As of today, we have been able to get an official confirmation from History Channel that, yes, indeed, the show fans love so much, “Swamp People,” will be returning for another season, despite the announcement at the beginning of the season that this would be the end of the line for viewers’ favorite swampers.
We have been fielding fans’ questions for months, and we’ve definitely made sure someone from History Channel was aware of how TVRuckus readers felt about this family-friendly show. As “Swamp People” viewers expressed over and over, the number of family-friendly shows, things you really don’t mind sitting down with your kids and watching–heck, even encourage your kids to watch–are dwindling. Why take off one of the best for no other apparent reason than they were just taking it off? It’s been clear: The audience is still there.
Now, fans just need to plan to do their part next season and watch; make sure the ratings reflect the numbers the many complaints, pleas and rationalizations claimed would be there if the network changed its mind on this one–something networks are not well-known for doing. So, let’s give some props to the History Channel for listening to its viewers and doing what they asked: Bring back a favorite show. After all, networks are only in business because of their viewers; it is nice to see viewers band together and make that clear. So, props to the fans of History Channel, as well.
Now, for tonight’s Season–not Series–Finale. According to History Channel, on “End of the Line”:
The Landrys race to tag out on the last day of the season, but they’ve got company, as R.J. and Jay Paul invade their territory looking to tag out themselves. And the Edgars attempt to catch their last haul of gators…with a little help from their friends.
The Season Finale of “Swamp People” airs on History Channel tonight, Monday, May 2 at 9/8c.
