‘Duck Dynasty’ wrapped its fifth season last night, March 26, with a very emotional episode, which has viewers excited for Season 6. So what can you expect from the family’s TV future? Click to WATCH Willie & Korie Robertson’s interview!
After a very controversial year (to say the least), Duck Dynasty‘s Willie and Korie Robertson are finally speaking out. On the heels of the Season 5 finale, the couple sat down together to tell fans what they can expect from the show’s next season.
‘Duck Dynasty’ — Have The Robertsons Bounced Back?
Willie and wife Korie Robertson sat down with CNN New Day to promote the Season 5 finale, which aired last night, March 26. The finale was very touching with little Mia Robertson, 11, bravely enduring surgery for a facial cleft. Mia wished for “family time” before her surgical operation, which perfectly fit into the Robertson clan’s family values.
The emotional finale had fans invested into the season finale (although ratings have declined throughout this season), but can the Robertsons bounce back after their infamously controversial year? Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the big family — and Mia’s grandpa! — seriously turned off a large portion of the public with his anti-gay comments to GQ. But will Season 6 be a success?
Willie & Korie Robertson Speak Out On The Day of ‘Duck Dynasty’ Season Finale
Phil will be in Season 6, as the majority of the episodes had been previously filmed before his controversial interview and A&E has lifted his suspension, so what can fans expect from the next season? Willie & Korie sounded off in yesterday’s national interview.
“Phil just said what he thought, what was on his heart,” Willie said on CNN about his father. “He did some paraphrasing there.”
Wife Korie chimed in, also in support of Phil, saying, “Anybody who knows [Phil] … any gay, straight, black, white, anybody who knows Phil knows that he is about love and his message is about God’s love, God’s grace and his forgiveness, ultimately.”
Willie continued, expressing his family’s beliefs in the Bible, and also admitted that they are not perfect. “I believe what the Bible says,” Willie said. “You have to read the Bible and make up your own mind. You have to decide, and God will ultimately decide then. We don’t profess to be God, and we certainly don’t profess to be perfect. Because we have our own sins that we deal with.”
