It’s hard to believe it has been 10 years since the launch of Discovery Channel’s iconic series, Deadliest Catch. For the past ten seasons, we have followed our favorite crab fishermen in the Bering Sea as they perform one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
Tonight, the baddest men of the sea return to Discovery to kick off their tenth season, though this season will be anything but status quo. After the death of Captain Phil, his son Josh Harris is back to carry on his family’s legacy and prove himself as captain of the Cornelia Marie. There are also big changes on the horizon for the F/V Northwestern – embarking on her right of passage, Sig Hansen’s 18-year-old daughter Mandy joins the ranks as deckhand.
If you haven’t already chosen your crew, there’s still time to play the Deadliest Catch Fantasy Game. This year’s grand prize is a trip to Dutch Harbor to meet the captains and tour the boats, so die-hard fans should be sure to get their crew ready before tonight’s premiere! You can also find out what it’s actually like to spend a day on a crab fishing boat with Deadliest Catch Raw, a stream of over 300 hours of never before seen footage from the cutting room floor.
Check out a sneak peek of season 10 below and don’t miss a special episode of The Bait at 8PM ET/PT right before the season premiere of Deadliest Catch. Follow @DeadliestCatch on Twitter tonight for live updates as we celebrate 10 years of Catch!
