Can You Dig It? ‘Gold Rush’ Returns for its Sixth Season with Two Hour Premiere

The crew is back! Discovery’s Gold Rush returns for its sixth season tonight, Friday, October 16 at 9/8c, with pre-show The Dirt airing at 8/9c.

Fans of the show watched last season as Todd Hoffman brought his crew back from the brink of bankruptcy, hitting the proverbial (and slightly literal) pot of gold. This season, he’s ready to keep his lucky streak alive – but with lofty ambitions, he risks the chance of his whole plan backfiring.

Parker has his own lucky streak going, too, mining an unprecedented $3 million of gold last season. But the monetary success came at a human price: with a crew weary from being worked into the ground, Parker must learn this season that leading a team of men can be just as difficult as striking gold.

Hunter and Todd watch as Jack Hoffman pans some gold.
