“We decided as a family for this to be the final chapter of the Duck Dynasty series,” Jase Robertson said in the farewell video.
“This is going to be the best season yet and you might see us on a special or two,” Korie Robertson chimed in, a sign that this won’t be the last you’ll see of the famous TV family.
The announcement coincided with Wednesday’s season 11 premiere of Duck Dynasty, which will air new episodes through Jan. 18, before it returns on March 1 for the final seven episodes. The series finale will air on April 12. A&E also plans on airing holiday specials following the final season.
