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 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." (Read more Duck Dynasty stories.)
