Their usual stomping ground is hell on earth – the icy, treacherous waters of the Bering Sea – but for the brand new season of AFTER THE CATCH, premiering Tuesday, June 14 at 10pm E/P, the captains and crews of DEADLIEST CATCH have certainly found paradise….Hawaii! Join Captains, Sig Hansen, Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand, Keith Colburn, Wild Bill Wichrowski, new kids in the wheelhouse Captain Elliot Neese and Scott Campbell Jr. along with Josh and Jake Harris and host Mike Rowe as they trade rogue waves for catching waves, crabs for leis, duck farts for mai tais and storm clouds for blue skies and head to Honolulu to rehash the seventh season of cable’s number one hit show.
The turmoil and tension of DEADLIEST CATCH’s current season has been memorable from Captain Derrick Ray’s rocky time skippering the Cornelia Marie to the open warfare between the Northwestern’s Edgar Hansen and Jake Anderson. Everything’s on the table and that table just might be flipped in the process.
Watch the fireworks, share the laughs and relive the season as DEADLIEST CATCH goes Hawaiian.
