Debuting in August 2010, ''Swamp People'' is a [[TheHistoryChannel History Channel]] [[RealityTV Reality Show]] that details the life and times of various Cajun dwellers in different sectors of the Atchafalaya River Basin swamp in Louisiana during one specific and important time of the year for them: Alligator season. Using their own wits, experience, equipment and luck, the hunters are on a race to bag enough alligators to net themselves enough money for their yearly income and be rid of the beasts before the population explodes and threatens locals. But that's not to say that the show is all serious business. In between the hunting and history lessons, the swamp has its own share of side-stories, oddities, and other various activities. Three separate seasons have aired so far, with the fourth one currently airing.

** After a (mostly) private period of mourning, Glenn has returned as Liz's newest partner.

Added DiffLines:
* OutOfFocus: Some of the hunters get less attention in some seasons... likely because they just didn't have much remarkable happen to them, or they were taking it easy that season, or have decided to focus on other pursuits, and so on. Generally the show will add at least two new sets of hunters every season to compensate for this.

* SupremeChef: When making a wager with the Texans over who can get the bigger gator, the Texans offer up a rifle holster worth thousands of dollars and Troy offers to... cook up a dinner of alligator jambalaya. The Texans consider this an equitable bet.
