A&E SADDLES UP FOR THE RETURN OF 'AMERICAN HOGGERS'
NEW EPISODES PREMIERE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22 AT 10PM ET/PT
New York, NY - October 11, 2013 - America's favorite hog-hunting family is back with more rivalries and family fireworks. New back-to back episodes of A&E's original real-life series "American Hoggers" return Tuesday, October 22 at 10PM ET/PT. Follow the Campbell family as they battle against each other and millions of wild boars rampantly taking over Texas.
After losing Krystal and Lea to Wild Women Hoggers last season, "Boss Hog" Jerry brings in a hot new recruit - 24-year-old bartender Katie Ball. Jerry thinks Katie is the key to dominating the Texas hog hunting market, while Robert thinks she's a short-timer. The family drama is hotter than ever when Krystal and Lea find themselves back in Texas fighting against their former colleagues for the top spot. Tensions run high, but when an old rival suddenly returns, the Campbells will have to band together if they want to take down a common foe.
In the premiere episode, newcomer Katie tackles her first hog, but Robert is still not convinced she has what it takes to make it in the business. In Florida, Krystal and Lea's frustration grows when their new partner surprises them with a recruit of his own.

Segal, Jeff Conroy and Sarah Whalen. Brent Henderson is co-executive producer. A&E executive producers are Lily Neumeyer and Evan Lerner.
