Ree Drummond is the star of The Pioneer Woman who is loved by the viewers of Food Network. The celebrity cook has been hosting her show from Oklahoma and fans have really enjoyed seeing the progress over the years. Drummond features her family heavily and during the pandemic, it was her kids that took over the filming crew duties to continue delivering new episodes. However, this is about to change and some fans are afraid it’s going to kill the “family vibe” the show has now.

In a new Instagram post, Drummond talked about the future of her show and teased what was coming up when production resumed again. The television personality said that they were “going to start shooting more of the ranch activities again.” Furthermore, it’s what she said after that shook fans up.

“And later this summer, my original crew from the U.K. will be coming back for the first time in over two years,” Drummond revealed.

What are fans saying about ‘The Pioneer Woman’ having the original film crew back?

What that means is that The Pioneer Woman would start filming again with her professional crew and some fans would like to continue having the kids film the show for her mother. The viewers took to the comments to express their feelings about the upcoming change.

“I’ve been loving the shows with the kids filming. I hope it stays that same relaxed style when the UK crew comes back,” a fan said.

“I have really enjoyed your shows that the kids have been filming. So fun!!!” a follower added.

“Awww, I’ll miss the kids filming!! I really loved that. Felt genuine and relaxed. I loved the family vibe so much. Please at least make the family filming part of the rotation. Don’t do away with it all together! I see I’m not alone in these feelings!” an Instagram user suggested.

“I like the show the BEST when you and your kids are filming!!!” another fan mentioned.

“The kids are doing a great job filming. I’d stick with them. I love your interaction with them throughout the show,” another follower commented.

“I think I love your show more white the kids doing the recording! It is just better! But love your show either way!” another Instagram user said.

Ree Drummond’s kids love filming ‘The Pioneer Woman’

Over the course of two years, Drummond’s kids have taken over filming The Pioneer Woman. Fans have loved that the show feels nostalgic and endearing and don’t want to mess up that vibe. Drummond’s family talked about helping film the show and why they actually loved doing it.

“My mom texted us and was like, ‘Can you guys help me film the show?'” daughter Alex said on Instagram. “And we were like, ‘What do you mean?’ We were very confused.”

Daughter Page said that they started filming the show on their iPhones and originally “thought it was going to be a short-term thing.” At the time of the interview back in August 2021, the family had shot close to 60 episodes of the Food Network show.

“I think it’s fun! I think my mom is just a lot more natural and it’s very goofy,” Alex added.

The Pioneer Woman airs Saturdays on the Food Network and is always available on the discovery+ streaming service.
