A&E announced on Friday that Phil Robertson will return to work on its reality show Duck Dynasty.

The news comes a little more than a week after the television network suspended Robertson for comments made during an interview with GQ. Robertson told the men's fashion glossy that gay sex was an illogical “sin” and put it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity.

“As a global media content company, A+E Networks' core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect,” A&E said in a statement. “We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people's homes, and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principles.”

“That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil's comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the 'coarse language' he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would 'never incite or encourage hate.' We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article and reiterate that they are not views we hold.”

“But Duck Dynasty is not a show about one man's views,” the network added.

The Robertson family thanked their supporters in a statement.

“The family is excited to keep making a quality tv show for our dedicated fans, who have showed us wonderful support,” the family said. “We will continue to represent our faith and values in the most positive way through Duck Dynasty and our many projects that we are currently working on. The outpouring of support and prayer has encouraged and emboldened us greatly.”

A&E added that it would launch a national PSA campaign “promoting unity, tolerance and acceptance among all people.”
