It's the deadliest job on earth: crab fishing off the Alaskan coast on the icy Bering Sea. Deadliest Catch returns for another season, which sees new beginnings as Wild Bill Wichrowski sinks everything he has into a new boat, and bittersweet endings as the Hillstrand brothers move on. Sig Hansen struggles to balance health and wealth following a major heart attack last year, while young captains Jake Anderson and Sean Dwyer fight to keep their place in the fleet.
This year has proven to be like no other; temperatures in the Bering Sea have risen four degrees in the last year alone - 50 times the global average. With crabs vanishing and temperatures spiking, it’s a race against the clock to see how the veterans and greenhorns can save the season. To find the crabs, captains must venture into uncharted territory hoping to recover their losses in colder, deeper waters.
With quotas slashed, Sean Dwyer fights to preserve the legacy of the father he lost too soon; after a tough season last year, a meaner, leaner and sober Keith Colburn arrives to take the reins onboard the FV Wizard; and Jake Anderson's job is on the chopping block after a dismal catch last season.
Up against forty-foot waves, hurricane force winds, and massive icebergs, our fearless captains and their crews will risk it all as they carve their existence out of the sea.
