    It’s true that Josh Harris and the Cornelia Marie will NOT be shown during king crab season, but between kings and opies they struck a deal. The Cornelia will be on the second half of this upcoming season.

  13. Sue Bye says:

    We’ll have to wait a bit longer down here at the bottom of the world but for us it is ‘must see’ viewing. Can’t wait – glad to know there is a new series coming. :-).

  19. Actually, Josh said on his FB and Instagram feeds that DSC opted not to film him this year, so it won’t focus on him at all.

  20. Sheila Donnelly says:

  31. Ed Davis says:

    So no real facts… just rumors and teases to watch what WAS the best show on TV.

  32. Thom Burke says:

    I really lost a lot of respect for The Wizard last season with Freddy’s behavior. I hope they didn’t contract with them for this season.

    When will this be shown in the UK please? I’m a massive fan and a format crab boat captain

  36. Mike O'Brien says:

    The Number One Best show. Can’t wait.

  37. CPR says:

    How could it focus on Josh Harris when Josh & Jake announced that they would not be part of the show before the season started because they could not come to an agreement with Discovery?

  38. Josh Harris announced in September that Discovery did not option the Cornelia Marie for season 10. To my knowledge, that has not changed and they will not be the focus. One of the only reasons I watch is the Cornelia Marie and hopes that Jake get’s clean and follows a path much like his brother.

  39. J says:

    What happened to Sig’s brother taking over cause this Mandy has never been on the show before so quite the middle finger to the brother IMO?

  40. Daryn says:

    According to Josh Harris, he isn’t on the show this season, they didn’t offer him a contract.

  41. LuAnn D says:

    love Deadliest Catch

  42. . says:

    So glad the show will be back on. I love people who work for their $, and these people sure do. It usually starts in March and I was beginning to worry about the show, can’t believe it’s been on for 9 years. Deadliest Catch is my favorite show all year.

  43. J. Howland says:

    Josh Harris has already made a public statement that he and the cornelia marie will not be featured on deadliest catch this year. I am curious as to where the information for this article was obtained?
