“It could be a season-ending storm,” series vet Jacob Landry tells viewers in the video, above. “It’s not looking good right now,” he adds. This is just one of the many challenges the “Swamp People” will face in Season 13. New additions and old favorites are banding together to overcome the bad weather and any other obstacles they might find in their way.

“Thirteen seasons in, Swamp People fans are as eager and loyal as they’ve ever been,” executive producer and Truly Original Co-CEO, Glenda Hersh, says. “This show sheds light on a diverse community of multi-generation, Cajun and Creole families who battle to keep their businesses going in the face of challenges that get tougher every year.”

“The weather’s more unpredictable and the storms keep getting bigger,” she adds, “yet these Louisiana die-hards remain committed to making the most of each gator-hunting season and sustaining their independent, unique way of life.”
