The Robertson family has been keeping silent since the brief suspension of patriarch Phil Robertson from A&E’s popular reality TV series Duck Dynasty, but that silence will soon be broken.
Fox News announced Monday that Willie and Korie Robertson will participate in the network’s “All-American New Year” special, during which they’ll be interviewed by Bill Hemmer and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
The couple will be interviewed live from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, for their first television appearance since Phil was shortly suspended from the A&E reality show for the comments he made on homosexuality; Willie and Korie are slated to discuss the topic of Phil’s suspension among other things during Fox News’ New Year’s Eve programming.
While there was some question surrounding whether the Robertsons would be back for another season of Duck Dynasty without Phil, A&E quickly put those rumors to rest when Phil’s suspension was lifted on Dec. 27.
“After discussions with the Robertson family, as well as consulting with numerous advocacy groups, A&E has decided to resume filming Duck Dynasty later this spring with the entire Robertson family,” the network announced in an official statement regarding the issue.
The interview segment with Willie and Korie will appear sometime during the Fox News New Years special, which airs from 9 p.m. Tuesday through 12:30 a.m. ET.
