FOX Nation will debut a new reality series entitled The Real Hatfields & McCoys: Forever Feuding on April 24th, announced Jason Klarman, the streaming platform’s president. Over the course of five episodes, the series will spotlight the modern-day Hatfields and McCoys whose notoriously violence-ridden relationship has taken a contemporary twist.

In making the announcement, Klarman said, “This series is a modern day look inside one of the most historic and iconic feuds in American history. We’re thrilled to spotlight both of these families and provide our viewers with a unique twist on a classic, light-hearted reality show.”
Hatfield family members including Nancy Justus (the oldest surviving direct descendent of Devil Anse Hatfield), Missy Lester, Amber Bishop, Chad Bishop and Christopher Champagne will be featured on the program, while the McCoys’ Big Jim, Courtney Quick, Derek DeProspero, Casandra Champagne, James Quick and John Quick will appear. Additionally, Dean King, author of “The Feud: Hatfields and McCoys: The True Story,” will join the series to detail the families’ history.
