Louisiana's favorite duck-hunting family is calling it quits. A&E says "Duck Dynasty" will wrap up after the current season. In a statement, the cable network said that "after five years, 130 episodes and one of the biggest hits in the history of cable, the Robertson family and A&E jointly decided that Duck Dynasty, the series, will come to an end after this season."
Willie Robertson made the announcement in a video message Wednesday night before the 11th season premier.
The Hollywood Reporter says the reality series following the Robertson family is the most-watched nonfiction series in cable history. At it's peak popularity episodes were drawing an average of 10 million people each week. The show has lost some viewers over the last few seasons, but the show still continued to bring in a large audience for A&E.
