The ‘Duck Dynasty’ stars: Where are they now?
The Robertson family, known for their reality TV show ‘Duck Dynasty’ which aired from 2012 to 2017, has remained in the public eye even after the show’s conclusion. The series, spanning 11 seasons and 130 episodes on A&E, centered around the lives of the Robertson family, who gained fame through their family business, Duck Commander, a company specializing in duck hunting products. While ‘Duck Dynasty’ may have come to an end, several spin-offs have emerged, focusing on individual family members such as ‘Jep & Jessica: Growing the Dynasty’ and ‘Going Si-ral’. Let’s take a closer look at what the Robertson family members are currently up to.
1. Phil Robertson embraced a quieter lifestyle
The patriarch and matriarch of the Robertson clan, Phil and Kay, have embraced a quieter lifestyle. The show ‘Duck Dynasty’ took fans through the life of the Duck Commander and his family. Phil now spends most of his days in the woods and engages with fans through his podcast, ‘Unashamed With Phil Robertson’.
2. Alan Robertson works in public relations at Duck Commander
Alan Robertson, who starred in ‘Duck Dynasty’, later co-authored a book with his wife Lisa Robertson called ‘A New Season: A Robertson Family Love Story of Brokenness and Redemption’. Alan, the eldest son of Phil and Kay, followed a different path by becoming a preacher. However, he later rejoined the family business, working as the public relations lead at Duck Commander. The couple has two daughters, Elizabeth Anna and Katie Alexis.
3. Jase Robertson started a foundation
Jase was the second son, who also starred in the show as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Duck Commander. In 2017, he and his wife founded the Mia Moo Foundation to raise awareness and funds for children with cleft lip and palate, like their daughter Mia. Additionally, the couple launched CamoFlix, a platform similar to YouTube for fishing and hunting enthusiasts, and the duo operates a bed and breakfast-event venue called Logtown Plantation. Jase’s wife, Missy, is involved in entrepreneurial ventures, including her jewelry line, Laminin.
4. Willie Robertson works at family restaurant
The third son and CEO of Duck Commander, Willie, played a pivotal role in turning their small family business into a multi-million dollar empire. He wrote the book ‘American Entrepreneur’ in 2018. He also runs a restaurant with his family, known as the Duck’s Diner. He starred in his own show, ‘Buck Commander,’ that aired on the Outdoor Channel, and appeared in his Uncle Si’s spinoff series. Willie’s wife, Korie, authored a book titled ‘Strong and Kind: Raising Kids of Character’. The couple has six children: John Luke, Sadie, Will, Rowdy, Bella, and Rebecca.
5. Jep Robertson started his own show
The fourth child, Jephthah, co-starred in his own spin-off show with his wife, Jessica, called ‘Jep & Jessica: Growing the Dynasty,’ which ran for two seasons. They also launched ‘The Jep & Jess Show’ podcast and started a YouTube channel to keep fans updated on their lives. Jessica owns a jewelry line called Cavalry. Unlike the rest of the Robertson family, Jep, Jessica, and their five children—Lily, Merrit, Priscilla, River, and adopted son Jules—reside in Austin, Texas. They have a food truck at the Dripping Springs distillery, a beer company owned by ‘Supernatural’ star Jensen Ackles.
6. Uncle Si Robertson ventured into the music industry
As the brother of Phil Robertson, Uncle Si was a beloved character on ‘Duck Dynasty’. He even had his own spin-off series titled ‘Going Si-ral’. After the show, he turned to writing, publishing the book ‘Si-serenity: How I Stay Calm and Keep the Faith’, which combined memoir-like writing with added behind-the-scenes insights from the ‘Duck Dynasty’ show. Uncle Si ventured into the music industry, forming the country music group called ‘Uncle Si and the Sicotics’ with daughter-in-law Marsha Robertson and singer-songwriter Bridgette Tatum. He also made appearances on various small-screen shows.
The Robertson family members have found success in various ventures after the conclusion of ‘Duck Dynasty’. From Phil embracing a quieter lifestyle to Alan working in public relations, Jase starting a foundation, Willie running a family restaurant, Jep having his own show, and Uncle Si exploring the music industry, the Robertson family continues to make their mark even after the end of their famous reality TV series.
