Bring on the beards!

A&E's reality hit Duck Dynasty is finally flying back into our lives tomorrow night and it looks like the Robertsons won't be leaving our TV screens anytime soon. Praise Uncle Si!

The duck-call clan's fourth season was almost in danger of being delayed over a salary dispute, but now it looks like our favorite bearded boys will be getting a hefty pay increase as well as an offer for additional seasons, Deadline is reporting.

Louisiana's bayou royalty will now be rewarded with a whopping $200,000-plus per episode to be divided amongst the nine adults and 11 kids on the show. Can you imagine how many camo pants and beard brushes you could buy with that much money?! Additionally, it looks like A&E has secured the Robertsons for additional seasons of the record-breaking reality series.

The season-three finale of Duck Dynasty snagged a jaw-dropping 9.6 million viewers, making it the most watched A&E telecast ever. Season four, which premieres Aug. 14 at 10 p.m., will feature a new addition to the family cast as we will be introduced to Phil Robertson's eldest son, Alan Robertson. Get ready to gasp because...he doesn't even have a beard! Shocking, we know.

Just in case you've been living under a TV rock for the past three years, Duck Dynasty follows the Robertson clan, a Monroe, La., family who made their fortune from manufacturing duck calls. They rock long bushy beards, say whatever is on their minds and are absolutely hilarious together.

Don't miss the season-four premiere of Duck Dynasty tomorrow night on A&E!
