A&E announced today that Duck Dynasty will be coming to an end after its current season, which premiered tonight. The reality series will be closing out an impressive 5-year run that in 2013 saw it become the most-watched nonfiction series in the history of cable TV.

The current batch of Season 11 episodes will air through to January 18 before taking a short break. The show will then return on March 1 with seven final episodes that will conclude the series. When Duck Dynasty signs off on April 12, it will be going out on a high note, as it currently ranks as A&E's most-watched series.

Fans of the show will be pleased to hear that while its regular season format is coming to an end, a series of holiday specials is currently being planned for the future.
