Tonight is the Season 13 premiere of Deadliest Catch on Discovery, and it’s gonna be a rough one. Not only is it the thirteenth season– which many of the captains have admitted to believing is unlucky— but it seems there aren’t any crabs left in the captains’ best spots!
According to a new Discovery release, temperatures in the Bering Sea have risen 50 times the global average, sending the crabs elsewhere. Hansen recently told Yahoo, “The fleet is going to need to go further and deeper… Nobody is going to take away a fisherman’s way of life. I can guarantee you that this fleet will not quit… But we’re always fearful that this will be our last year.”
Captain Jonathan Hillstrand recently announced that this will be his final season on The Time Bandit, and fans are waiting to see if this will be Sig Hansen’s last year on the Northwestern— especially considering what happened with the crew of the Destination, who got lost at sea.
Read on to find out when and where to watch the show tonight.
