The officialn word: Louisiana Alligator hunting season roars into action once again, and this time our beloved swampers will face the most vicious and aggressive gators ever. Season Five of SWAMP PEOPLE returns to HISTORY, premiering Monday, February 3 at 9PM ET/PT.
Season Five of SWAMP PEOPLE follows the fearless swampers of Southern Louisiana as they attempt to fill their alligator tags while under attack from the deadly beasts below the surface. After last year’s storm shortened the culling season, big gators are back with a vengeance and have become more brash than ever - boldly encroaching on residents of the bayou. But hunters have drawn a line in the swamp, vowing to stop their deadly march – no matter the cost.
With human lives on the line and the highest gator prices in years, swampers are pulling out all the stops to cash in during the 30-day hunting season. They will have to resort to all new strategies and expand into unfamiliar territories in order to track down the biggest and most vicious beasts in the bayou. But circumstances are creating a perfect storm – forcing them to bump up against other hunters, face brazen poachers, and tangle with deadly predators at every turn.
In addition to a returning cast featuring Troy Landry and sons, RJ and Jay Paul Molinere, Liz and Jessica, Junior and Willie, Bruce Mitchell, and more, this season boasts the long awaited return of one of the toughest men in the swamp, Terral Evans, and the debut of fierce Apache hunter Roger Rivers.
