'Deadliest Catch' uncensored trailer, debut date, seventh season details -- EXCLUSIVE

Yar! We cast our net into the scoopage sea and caught a whole boatload of Deadliest Catch news: Season seven’s premiere date, a bunch of plot details and, best of all, the first trailer.

The Emmy-winning Discovery hit is coming off one of the most heartbreaking seasons in reality TV history, which chronicled the passing of Capt. Phil Harris. The real-life tragedy cemented the show’s focus on the fishermen involved with Deadliest Catch and not the workplace procedural drama of catching crabs.

This season opens with Josh and Jake Harris needing to show the rest of the fleet they can come back and perform as co-owners of the Cornelia Marie. Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand may soon find their crabbing lucky streak is coming to an end. Captain Sig Hansen is left guessing if brother Edgar is showing up this season. Captain Keith Colburn ventures into uncharted fishing grounds hoping for a big pay-off for the Wizard. Plus, two new boats join the fleet, including one that’s been dubbed the “floating frat house,” which introduces a young and rowdy crew (fingers crossed for a floating sorority house of crab fisherwomen in season eight). Deadliest will premiere April 12 at 9 p.m., here’s the first trailer:

(Bonus and warning: Ever wonder what Deadliest Catch would be like on HBO? This NSFW video is such a fresh catch, Discovery hasn’t put the bleeps in yet, so be prepared to hear the fisherman swear like, well, sailors):

  • kdf

    what about the hillstrands? i didn’t see anyone from the time bandit. i heard discovery is suing them. wtf??

    • Jenn

      It did mention the Hillstrands… read the second line of the third paragraph lol. As for your other ?: They settled that dispute months ago. The Hillstrands were filming a spin off called “Hillstranded” and there was some sort of miscommunication where Discovery decided to respond with a $3MM lawsuit saying the brothers didn’t fulfill their contracts for the new show. The brothers, along with Sig Hansen to show his support for the Hillstrands and against Discovery, responded by quitting the show. Only to have Discovery realize the show couldn’t afford to have two of the original boats (Time Bandit and the Northwestern) both quit the show and came back to the negotiation table. They settled and all are now back for this season, thank God.

    KDF, the lawsuit was settled and the Hillstrands are on board for the season. We’re all good there.

  • Patience

    The 2 new boats are the Seabrooke and Ramblin Rose.

  • Ms. Dipesto

    It’s still beyond me how this show hasn’t been nominated for an Emmy. It’s hands-down the best reality show on TV today.

    • Deb

      Totally. What these guys go through to make a living kinda makes Charlie Sheen look like an even bigger idiot than he already does. Can’t feed his family on nearly $2 million PER EPISODE??? Booeffinghoo.

    • Cheri

      Ms.D…they were nominated and won an emmy 2 yrs ago…but it was Discovery that won for the show..not the guys. Andy and Johnathen said they got nothing but an acnowledgement from the producers on it.

  • DDL

    I think they should air two versions. One during primetime with all the bleeps and one late night adult version-no bleeps.

  • chris b

    how can I get a job on one of those ships

  • Dan

    I cannot wait for the new season!!

  • cherlo

    By far the best reality show on the air. They really work hard for their money and take a lot of risks doing it.

  • Julie

    Can’t wait to see the new season!

  • crystal speer

  • wayne t
