Suspension Over: A&E Brings Back Phil Robertson 'Duck Dynasty' will go on as usual By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Dec 27, 2013 4:41 PM CST 414 comments Comments This undated image released by A&E shows Phil Robertson from 'Duck Dynasty.' (AP Photo/A&E, Zach Dilgard) (Newser) – Fans of Duck Dynasty will never have to know what the show would be like without patriarch Phil Robertson. A&E said today it is allowing him to return with the rest of his clan in the spring when filming resumes, reports Deadline.com. The network had suspended him after his anti-gay remarks to GQ, but because filming had been on hiatus anyway between seasons, the suspension will have no effect on any of the episodes, notes the Hollywood Reporter. In its statement, A&E reiterated that it disagrees with Robertson's views about homosexuality, but "Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views."
