The seas are rougher, the stakes are higher and the intensity has never been stronger as Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch returns for a fifth season. At the Dutch Harbor, Alaska, Captains Sig Hansen, Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand, Phil Harris and Keith Colburn are all back for another season of crab fishing, but storms personal, natural and financial are brewing. Phil and Keith both face serious health issues.
While Keith escapes a close call with cancer, Phil finds himself in limbo, not sure if he will be allowed to fish this year. This season, Deadliest Catch lives up to its name as the tragedy of the Katmai unfolds sending ripples through the fishing community of Dutch Harbour. Seven fishermen lost their lives in the icy Bering Sea and only Discovery cameras were there to be a part of the Coast Guard’s search and rescue. Surviving Katmai crew members, including the captain, open up about their harrowing days adrift on the open sea and the bonds with their fallen brothers.
Catch up on Deadliest Catch weekdays at 9:10am before the new season premieres September 12th 9pm CAT.
Season 11 had it all: weddings, babies, rouge waves, fires, greenhorns, fights, injuries, breakdowns, bust ups, and crabs... lots and lots of crabs! Catch up with it all here before the new season of Deadliest Catch premieres later this year.
Do you want the experience of Sig, the wisdom of Wild Bill, or perhaps you'd prefer the youth and energy of Jake and Josh. Who would you want leading you on the high seas? Who's your captain?
