About the series

River Monsters is a British and American wildlife documentary television series that is currently airing on the ITV, Animal Planet and Discovery channel.

Season 1 of River Monsters premiered on ITV and Animal Planet on April 5, 2009.

The documentary wildlife series River Monsters is hosted by extreme angler and biologist Jeremy Wade. In every episode he travels around the world in search of the most fearsome freshwater killers.
