It’s hard to believe that Deadliest Catch is entering its 10th season on the Discovery Channel. The program which follows a group of crab fisherman working one of the deadliest jobs in America has spawned hundreds of imitators. The Ice Road Truckers and Gold Rush programs of the world owe their existence to the work done in the Bering Sea. The show pulls no punches, and has turned the pulling of crab pots into one of the great spectator sports on TV.
The tenth season brings back the Cornelia Marie, one of the original crab ships captain by the late Phil Harris. His two sons, Jake and Josh, have been an important part of the show from the beginning. This season Josh Harris takes over the captains chair on the boat, while his brother Jake is still dealing with substance abuse problems. Also back this season are the Hansen brothers with their boat the Northwestern, the Wizard with Captain Keith, and the Time Bandit with its ship full of practical jokers.
Check out the preview of the 10th season below.
