Deadliest Catch is about primal fears – and the people who face them down. It’s the high-stakes story of humankind versus nature – where every wave is a reminder of mortality, every crab pot is a testament to grit, and every day of survival is a chance to build a legacy and fulfill the American Dream.
Brutal. Majestic. Raw. Real. Deadliest Catch tells the epic, multi-generational tale of the men and women who ply their trade on the Bering Sea. Relentlessly documented with nearly a thousand cameras and 47 thousand hours of footage, all capturing the ragged poetry of life on the water.
This season of Deadliest Catch finds the Bristol Bay Crab Fleet at their most desperate. Battered by COVID, captains and crews band together to combat the extinction of their very way of life. Fighting for epic riches as new global threats close in – everyone on the water must reckon with the death of some of their own – and what it will take to survive.
