Aussie Gold Hunters Returning For Second Season on Discovery Channel
Production has begun on Season 2 of Aussie Gold Hunters on Discovery Channel, which follows crews of hard core gold prospectors risking it all to strike it rich, deep in the wild west of outback Australia.
Returning for the new season are the Dirt Dogs (Vernon Strange and Leon Marsh), Gold Gypsies (Christine and Greg Clark) and Kellie Carter and her teammate Henri Chassaing. The three crews will also be joined by some new faces for the 10-part series.
"After a successful debut last year, we're excited to announce that Aussie Gold Hunters will be returning to Discovery Channel for Season 2," said Jonathan Rudd, Vice President Programming & Production Australia, New Zealand & Pacific Islands, DNAP.
"Discovery Channel is renowned for showcasing unique and extreme jobs from around the world and closer to home, and Aussie Gold Hunters is no exception - the authentic stories and characters resonate strongly with our viewers. The gold fields of outback Western Australia are not for the faint hearted and this season we delve deeper to find out why these crews are hooked on the hunt for gold."
Risking everything in the hopes of finding gold, Aussie Gold Hunters captures the journey from the soaring highs to the crushing lows of the gold season on the remote gold fields of Western Australia. The crews brave brutal heat, punishing conditions, mechanical breakdowns and constant pressure in their quest to strike it big. Because here, it’s all or nothing. Welcome to the new rush.
Aussie Gold Hunters Season 2 will premiere in July, only on Discovery Channel.
The series is produced by Electric Pictures for Discovery Channel.
