In 2010, the viewers of History Channel saw a new reality, “Swamp People”. Currently, the viewers have seven seasons to watch. And we look forward to the news about the series’s renewal for the eighth season.
Some information about the series you need to know
Developed by Dolores Gavin and broadcast on History Channel, Swamp People is a reality serial. The debut of the pioneer episode took place in 2010, in August. Now we have seven chapters at our disposal. The last one came out this year in February. The series is undoubtedly a pay dirt for the developers. The ratings keep growing from episode to episode.
The series is notable for the participation of such people as Troy Landry, Junior Edwards, R.J. Molinere, Liz Cavalier, Pat Duke, and many others.
What is the serial about?
The serial revolves around the mundane everyday life of Louisiana residents. They have nothing to do but to live their lives in the Atchafalaya Basin swamps, chase alligators and try to lead their ancient way of life.
The season, when they are hunting alligators, is the most important part of the year as it brings them the most of their annual income. According to the tradition, the hunting starts on the first Wednesday of September. The hunting season continues for an entire month.
This old trade is rather dangerous. There also rules concerning the regulation of the number of alligators. Each hunter is allowed to kill a certain amount of them. And all of them must use their skills to finish the work before the season is over.
It is also possible for the hunters to collaborate with each other. The serial narration centers on a different team each chapter.
The series itself is a story of the proud. The more elderly population of America has to struggle to survive the alligator hunting season.
Chances of renewal and current rating numbers
It is interesting to note that this serial is the basis for the “Outback Hunters” show. But let’s not digress.
That’s why we are presenting you the rating numbers. According to IMDb, the series has above-average scores, 6.3 out of 10 points. So it seems like the series has obtained its own audience that takes a keen interest in the history of their country. However, the current season lacks some characters that have been depicted in the previous chapters. That might cause a slight decrease in the rating levels.
So far, there is no information about the Swamp People Season 8 release date, as well as the possibility of the next sequel. There is no way other than to stay tuned to not miss the news about your favorite serial.
