Discovery had filed a $3 breach-of-contract lawsuit against the Hillstrand brothers alleging they had not lived up to their agreement to make Hillstranded, but they worked it out.
Statement Released from Captains Sig Hansen and Johnathan & Andy Hillstrand:
"We're happy we worked everything out with Discovery. A deal's a deal. We're heading up to Dutch Harbor to start filming the new season of DEADLIEST CATCH and hopefully it will be the best one yet.
The Hillstrands added: “Everyone worked really hard on putting together HILLSTRANDED and we’re looking forward to wrapping that up. It’s something new that we hope people will enjoy.”
