‘Swamp People’ Season 11 Preview
When Swamp People season 11 premieres on History Channel on January 23, it will take its Thursday night primetime slot at 9/8c. Before that season premiere, however, the History Channel’s “Countdown to Season 11” will take up 4 hours of the network’s programming on Sunday, January 19, starting at 8/7c.
History Channel’s official synopsis for the 4-hour countdown special reads “Troy and his armada take an overnight trip to the legendary hunting ground, Cow Island. Joey and Zak go on a special mission to protect Edgar’s hometown while Daniel takes matters into his own hands to deal with a poacher. A bad ‘fish kill’ means easy eating for the gators, forcing RJ and Jay Paul to snipe them from long range.”
The official synopsis for the January 23 season 11 premiere episode, entited “Raging Bulls,” reads “Desperate to cull the exploding gator population, the swampers target breeding bulls; Joey and Zak create a feeding frenzy using wild hogs as chum; a gator takes a bite out of Ashley and Ronnie; Troy and Terral embark on a dangerous mission.”
The following week, on Thursday, January 30, episode 2 (“Return to Froggy Bayou”) airs. The description for that episode teases that “Joey and Zak stake out game trails to nab gators; after he’s sabotaged by angry locals, Ronnie recruits Terral to help him get back into his honey hole; Troy tests the patience of a new deckhand; Daniel and Big Tee get creative with their bait.”
This season’s cast stars Troy, Jacob, Chase, and Holden Landry, Terral Evans, Dusty Crum, Big Tee, Daniel, Joey, and Dwaine Edgar, R.J. and Jay Paul Molinere, Willie Edwards, Robert “Frenchy” Crochet, Gerard “Gee” Singleton, Ronnie Adams, Ashley Jones, and Zak Catchem. Based on the premiere episode’s synopsis, it appears that most, if not all, of the stars and their season 11 storylines will feature in the first episode of the season.
In the lead-up to the season 11 premiere, History Channel will be airing reruns of past episodes of the reality series. On Sunday, January 19, before the countdown begins, reruns will start airing at 12pm ET. On January 23, before the premiere of the new season, old episodes are scheduled to play on the History Channel starting at 4pm ET. If you are unable to watch those reruns on the History Channel, the History Channel’s YouTube account has a number of memorable scenes and key moments uploaded for fans to watch, as well as several full episodes.
