Summary and plot

Deadliest Catch is an American reality television series that is currently airing on the Discovery Channel. The series was created by Thom Beers (Ice Road Truckers, The Returned, Bering Sea Gold, Ax Men, Storage Wars) who also serves as an executive producer for the series along Jeff Conroy (Appalachian Outlaws), Tracy Rudolph (MythBusters), David Pritikin (The Devil's Ride) and Paul Gasek (How the Universe Works). Season 1 of Deadliest Catch premiered on Discovery Channel on April 12, 2005 and currently airs in over 200 countries.

Deadliest Catch shows what happens aboard fishing vessels in the Bering Sea during the Alaskan king crab, snow crab and bairdi crab fishing seasons. The title of the series reflects the high risk of injury or death associated with this kind of work. In fact, according to the Business Insider, fishers and especially Alaskan crab fishers have always been in top 10 list of the most dangerous jobs in America. Ever since its debut back in 2005, Deadliest Catch has garnered many positive reviews and quite a fan following. The show was nominated for 4 Primetime Emmy Awards for 2007 season. The series was also nominated for Outstanding Nonfiction Series; season 3 episode "The Unforgiving Sea" got nominations for Outstanding Cinematography, Outstanding Picture Editing and Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming. In 2012, Deadliest Catch won two of its three Emmy nominations for season 8 episode "I Don't Wanna Die".

Season 11 of Deadliest Catch premiered on Discovery Channel on April 14, 2015. There have been no official announcements from Discovery yet about the renewal of the series for another season, but given the popularity of the show and a large fan base, we think it’s a slam dunk.
