According to this latest release, Discovery has already renewed ‘Deadliest Catch’ for another season, amongs other shows!  Great news to have so early in the season!  It just goes to show that ‘Deadliest Catch’ continues to gain popularity as it surpasses it’s super cult-status and begins to compete with the more mainstream prime time shows!

LOS ANGELES, Ca., April 08, 2008 – Discovery Channel announces an ambitious Upfront slate packed with specials and series that embrace imagination, exploration and adventure.

 

From the last great race left on the planet to the competition for a new kind of life beyond Earth, from the heart of Amazonia to the caves of Timbuktu, Discovery Channel documents the world in all its wonder.

 

“Discovery Channel is a window into the awesome power of the Earth,” said John Ford, president and general manager, Discovery Channel. “Using the highest-quality storytelling and filmmaking techniques, our programs delve into topics ranging from science and engineering to anthropology and archaeology. No one can match Discovery’s ability to invite our viewers into the action as it unfolds.”

The highlights of Discovery Channel’s 2008-09 Upfront schedule include the following:

RETURNING SERIES

DEADLIEST CATCH
Alaskan crab-wranglers fight the most dangerous working conditions, including 40-foot waves and 80-mile-per-hour winds in the gripping 10-part series DEADLIEST CATCH. Deep in the Bering Sea’s frigid waters, 250 boats tempt fate and nature in “The Last Rodeo” season trying to bring in a season’s catch of the highly coveted and lucrative Alaskan king crab.

DIRTY JOBS
In the feisty DIRTY JOBS, host and everyman Mike Rowe gets the grimy scoop on downright nasty occupations. That foul play for pay could be processing smelly seafood in a fish factory, collecting bat guano for prized fertilizer, combing creek bottoms for edible wildlife or cleaning septic tanks to maintain a fresh-smelling environment.

MAN V. WILD
Adventurer and survival expert Bear Grylls is put to the ultimate test. Left in the middle of nowhere, Grylls employs his encyclopedic knowledge of nature to scavenge for food and keep his body in order. Headache? Grylls searches for pain-relieving plants. Hunger? He eats maggots in the Rocky Mountains or a fresh zebra kill in Africa’s savanna. No matter the climate or locale, Grylls is up to the task.

MYTHBUSTERS
Are the stories about the exploding dog in a microwave and keeping cell phones away from gas pumps true? MYTHBUSTERS is back, continuing its mad scientific quest to discover the truth behind popular myths and urban legends. Hosted by quirky special effects experts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, this mentally tantalizing series takes on the myths and uses modern-day science to show what’s real and what’s fiction.

SMASH LAB
Follow a team of maverick engineers as they take everyday technology and apply it in new, revolutionary ways. Could bulletproof Kevlar protect an airliner from bombs? Could truck dampers be used to earthquake-proof a house? Our experts bring their professional expertise to the table and ask the questions that the viewers may also be asking—how in the world is this technology possible, and why can’t it help others? Their mission: to make the world a safer place.

 

SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED
People are fascinated by how things work. From incredibly high-tech items like plasma TVs to remarkably mundane objects that we use every day, such as toilets, tissues and toothpaste, every object has a story and an incredible process behind it. Host Brian Unger meets the people behind the building process and discovers the often dramatic, funny, ingenious solutions people come up with to make products bigger, better, cheaper or faster.

  5. dale the fanatic says:

    I am going nuts trying to find out when this new season will air. I have searched the DC site on Discovery about thirty minutes using every tag I can dream up, and it is like I am trying to find some kind of foreign concept. What is going on there? Is it so difficult to conceive that fans might want to know when to turn on their tvs? Good grief!

  6. opilia says:

    Dale,

    The new seasons always air approximately in April of the following year after filming, so if season 5 is like all the others, it should air April, 2009.

    I have loved this show since the first time it aired. Has to be the most “real” program on the tube. Can’t wait for the next season to see how my old friends are doing. Pray all is well for Phil and his boys. Keep it real…don’t hold nothing back.

  10. diane says:

    My husband and I can’t wait for season 5 to start. In the mean time we would love to see more of the previous seasons and even see the season 1 series. I can’t explain why we are so stuck to the TV when it comes on but we know we don’t want to miss it. Please continue what your doing.

  11. mike says:

    I ran into Phil Harris today in Maple Valley Wa. I was able to talk to him for just a minute or so. He is “doing better but not out of the woods yet.”
    I’ll save the rest for Season 5 to air …

  14. Patrick says:

    I have fished in the Bering for over 11 years(I was in St.Paul Ak in 1999 when the lynn J went down) (I was in Dutch harbor in 2005 When the Big Valley went down) and I was back in St Paul Ak when the Alaska Ranger went down last year- It takes a lot of Heart to even “Think” of going out there let alone doing it for a living- my condolences go out to the families of these BRAVE MEN
