New Season of ‘River Monsters’ Promises Dangerous Adventures, Horrific Creatures

Season 5 River Monsters

He’s back! Extreme angler Jeremy Wade returns to Animal Planet this Sunday for the season premiere of River Monsters, at 9pm ET/PT.

In the new season, Jeremy takes his search for underwater killers to new heights with the most dangerous adventures we’ve seen yet, including a journey to Chernobyl’s nuclear wastelands in search of a mutant fish, a trip to Nicaragua to capture an elusive killer torpedo and a quest to find a prehistoric underwater vampire.

On Sunday’s season premiere, Wade begins a treacherous investigation into a horrific death in a Bolivian river, where one man lost his face to a true river monster. The season will build to a special Memorial Day two-hour season finale, when Wade will tackle the most legendary creature yet — the Loch Ness Monster.
