The seas are charted, the crew is prepped – are you ready to head out for a new season of Deadliest Catch?
Premiering tonight at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel, the ninth season of Deadliest Catch promises a whole new level of adventure, with higher stakes, greater danger and all-new ways for fans to join the crew.
This season, the seven skippers and their crew are fighting through hell and back again in search of King and Opilio crab, but as they venture into the high seas, they begin to realize many of the most violent storms come from within. Facing 40-foot waves, hurricane force winds, heavy-machinery, the youngest members of the crew fight for fame and fortune, while the captains wage war for crab supremacy – who will come out on top?
Get ready for all the action with The Bait, a new pre-show featuring your favorite captains dishing on fishing, boat life and what to expect on that night’s episode of Deadliest Catch. During the 8pm ET premiere, Tweet along with the captains and crew tagging @DeadliestCatch and using #DeadliestCatch, and you may see your Tweet on TV (our own “crew” has settled in at our broadcast center to look for their favorites live tonight).
And, if you haven’t already, make sure to sign up for the new Deadliest Catch Fantasy Game, where you pick your captain, boat and crew each week and could win a Discovery Adventures trip of a lifetime.
