Swamp People Season 8 Premiere – What to Expect this Week

It’s Monday, which means we’re only 3 days away from an action-packed new Season of Swamp People. And just when you thought the premiere week of Swamp People couldn’t get any better, it has!

HISTORY will be giving us fans, not 1, not 2 but 3 hours of all-NEW Swamp People.

This Thursday (February 16th) starting at 7 am, there will a Swamp People season 7 marathon, followed by a ’10 Most Dangerous Moments’ special at 8/7c. Then, Season 8 will make its 2-hour debut at 9/8c with TWO new episodes!

‘Swamp People: Ten Most Dangerous Moments’ will be a countdown of the most treacherous gator battles, hair-raising close calls and near-death moments of the past seven seasons.


The first episode of Season 8 is titled, ‘The Hunt Begins’. In this episode, Troy promotes Chase as captain of his own boat. Daniel Edgar calls in his son Dwaine Edgar from Texas to help fill tags. Meanwhile, R.J. & Jay Paul will be hunting on separate boats for the first time ever.

The second episode of the premiere, ‘Fresh Blood’, will bring some challenges for new boat captain Chase. Dwaine will also struggle to live up to his father’s expectations. Newcomers Frenchie and Gee will be hunting in new gator territory, while Glenn Guist will make a return to his home for the first time after a flood destroyed his property and will have to deal with some unwanted guests.
