Happy happy happy! The Robertsons of A&E’s megahit Duck Dynasty return to our TV screens tomorrow (January 15) night, and they’re kicking things off with two brand new cast additions. The first to join will be Willie and Korie’s adopted daughter Rebecca, who we meet in the premiere.
Last week, we found out a little more about Becca — a 20-something fashion-lover who co-owns the Duck & Dressing boutique with adoptive mom, Korie. The two have also just launched a blog to put Becca’s impeccable style on display.
Now that we’ve seen the synopsis for tomorrow night’s premiere, we know more about how Rebecca will be joining her family on-screen this season. Apparently, she’s been off interning in L.A., but she’s back to explore her career prospects in the comfort of her stateside family’s Louisiana home. Seems like she’s had some success with that already! And Korie doesn’t get all the time with her daughter — we’re going to see Becca and Willie bond over their overachieving personalities.
One other tidbit on Season 5’s first outing: Uncle Si will be battling an illness — uh oh! But it’s not all bad. Expect some good comic relief when Si moves in with Phil and Miss Kay so that his sister-in-law can take care of him. Three’s company, anyone?
Check out the official synopsis below:
“When Rebecca returns home from her internship in Los Angeles, the Robertson family plans a big surprise party to welcome her back. But when Willie thinks Rebecca has no plan for her future, he becomes concerned, and decides to find out how Rebecca plans to earn her keep as a member of his household. However, Willie is happily surprised to discover that Rebecca is a real go-getter, much like him. Meanwhile, when Uncle Si gets sick, he seeks the help of Ms. Kay to take care of him, but when Si takes over her living room, Phil takes issue with his new houseguest.”
The fifth season of Duck Dynasty premieres January 15 at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
