As you can see below, Discovery has posted episode descriptions up to the first of July which would be well into the Opilio season episodes. Word is that ‘After the Catch’ will start airing towards the end of June and they’re due to film them soon (if they havent already started)–on the east coast…Should be very interesting! In case you’re still wondering, there should be 16 episodes of season 4 of ‘Deadliest Catch’ and according to what a couple of the skippers from the show mentioned a few months ago, there may be 8 episodes of ‘After the Catch’. Happy watching then!!
