Rebecca Robertson and Korie's cousin JD will join the Robertsons in the upcoming season of the reality series.

"" will welcome two additions to the cast ensemble of its fifth season. A promo for the upcoming installment reveals that Rebecca Robertson will be prominent this season, but keeps the second new cast member secret.

Official synopsis for the second episode of season 5, however, has hinted at the other new face on the show. It appears that the reality series will bring Korie's cousin JD into the fold as she wants Willie to hire JD as his new assistant.

"When Willie is looking to hire a new assistant, Korie insists he interview her cousin, JD. Willie is hesitant at first, but immediately hits it off with JD, who truly appreciates Willie's sense of humor," part of the synopsis reads, "now, JD just has to win over the Duck Call room guys, who are wary of having another Willie in the office."

"Duck Dynasty" season 5 premieres Wednesday, January 15 at 10 P.M. EST on A&E.

Korie and Willie Robertson recently revealed that their hit reality show had motivated students to pray before lunch at schools across the country. Robertson said Sunday at a fundraiser held at the Montgomery Performing Arts Center, "For a TV show to bring prayer into schools, that's awesome."

On what to expect from the new season of the show, Sadie teased, "I laughed so hard I cried a couple of times. Coming up, we have this paintball gun episode and it is hi-larious, by far my favorite episode, probably."

Sadie also said that the family decided not to address the controversy surrounding her grandfather, , but added, "We will say we're really glad for us all to be back together as a family because (he's) the leader. We couldn't do anything without him."
