'Swamp People' is an American reality show that first premiered on History in 2010. The show walks us through the daily activities of alligator hunters who live in the swamps of the Atchafalaya River Basin. They all hunt alligators to make a living.

The reality series focuses on various teams of alligator hunters every season. Few episodes also feature activities like fishing and hunting other animals. As of Season 4, the reality show expanded to venues beyond the Atchafalaya River Basin, eventually featuring other parts of Louisiana, as well as the swamplands in and around Texas.

What is 'Swamp People' all about?

The official synopsis reads, "Welcome to one of America's last frontiers: the wild swamplands of Southern Louisiana, a place whose history stretches back to the 17th century. It's the start of the most exciting and dangerous time of year for the swampers, the month-long alligator season. During this 30 day window, swampers make most of their annual income culling gators. Follow these swampers through a time of year that is crucial to their survival: the 30-day alligator hunting season. At its core, this is a uniquely American story of proud and skillful people fighting to maintain an ancient way of life in a rapidly modernizing world, despite the many perils and trials that stand in their way."
