The season finale of reality television show Duck Dynasty is set to air Wednesday, March 26, 10:00 p.m. local time, on A&E.
The episode will be available online at aetv.com after the television broadcast.
In this episode, the Robertson family have a reunion and throw a party for Mia Robertson before her cleft palate surgery.
Mia was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, and underwent her first corrective surgery when she was only 3 months old. Since then, she has had a number of operations, with the most recent on January 3, 2014.
Because of Mia, Jase and Missy Roberson were inspired to start the Mia Moo Fund, a non-profit organization that helps raise awareness and fund research for causes and treatments of cleft lips and palates.
Wednesday’s finale will conclude a less-than-stellar Duck Dynasty season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the fifth installment averaged 4.7 million viewers in the season’s penultimate episode, the first time the series has dropped below the 5 million mark, and a far cry from the 11.7 million viewers last year.
Some reasons for the show’s drop in popularity include airing seasons back-to-back, and star Phil Robertson’s unflattering remarks about gay people and the Jim Crow South.
Still, the show is headed for a sixth season, and the Robertson family are half way through filming it, CNN reports.
