‘Gold Rush’ Returns to Discovery on October 28

This just in: Season 2 of Discovery Channel‘s hit series Gold Rush will kick off on Friday, October 28 at 9pm ET/PT.

Gold Rush features a group of down-on-their-luck men, in the face of an economic meltdown, who risk everything to try to strike it rich mining for gold in Alaska. Inspired by his father Jack, Todd Hoffman leads the miners – now with one season under their belts – to finish what they started and get to the bottom of the glory hole at Porcupine Creek and find gold. The second season kicks off with a special – “The Off-Season” – at 8PM ET/PT, where fans will find out about all of the hard work the Hoffmans put in between mining seasons to make sure they hit the mother lode this time around. Then at 9PM ET/PT, “Twist of Fate” officially kicks off the new season.

Mark your calendars for October 28, and check out this sneak peek of Season 2:
