ADDITIONAL NOTES: completed airing its fourth season on 5/31/15; has yet to be renewed for a fifth season
DESCRIPTION: (from National Geographic Channel's press release, January 2015) Last year, millions of viewers watched as one Gloucester captain dominated and outmaneuvered the entire fleet despite a difficult fishing season. But this season, the fish are larger, the competition is tougher and the top spot on the leaderboard is up for grabs once again. Wicked Tuna returns with an all-new season of peril and paydays on the high seas beginning Sunday, Feb. 15, at 9/8c on National Geographic Channel in the U.S., and will air internationally on National Geographic Channel in 171 countries and in 45 languages. Wicked Tuna gives viewers an in-depth look at the intense battles, fierce competition, crushing losses and major paydays of the country's toughest fishermen. In its third season, the show solidified its position among National Geographic Channel's top-rated series and gave rise to a spinoff, Wicked Tuna: North vs. South, which premiered as the network's highest-rated new series of 2014 and will film its second season in early 2015. Both series are produced by Pilgrim Studios.
