'Bering Sea Gold' is one of Discovery's top shows and the unscripted reality adventure is back with a new season, and it promises to be another same high-octane, intense installment that sees some familiar faces return and go gold-mining in the treacherous Bering Sea. Originally slated to debut on May 8, the premiere was moved to May 15 and a special was aired in its place. Ahead of season 9, here's everything you need to know about the show.
'Bering Sea Gold' will premiere on May 15, 8 pm ET on Discovery
Seismic shifts have made mining a challenge. Adding to that is the games played by unpredictable mother nature. The special that aired last week saw each of the Captains outline their plans for the new season. Captain Ken Kerr of Myrtle Irene hopes to retain the title of "Mr Gold" by making a rich haul this time. Kris Kelly's introduction was one for the ages. "Last year sucked for us," he reveals grimly. For the miner, the new season is a ticket to redemption after being bogged down by intense winds that impacted visibility.
Vernon Adkison may have had a decent outing, but that wasn't to say he had problems aplenty. The skipper had a hard time with his daughter, Elaine last season and the duo are keen to make amends and put their best attempt this time around. Emily Riedel of the Eroica hopes for some major moolah to make despite the odds mother nature brings in. To ensure she can go all the way, the cavalry comes in the form of diver Daryl Galipeau to explore untouched areas.
For Shawn Pomrenke, this is an opportunity to build his empire back. After going down to Kerr last time, he is desperate to make amends. But he does have problems in the form of an incomplete dredge and a half-done deal. The question remains, "Can Shawn get back to the pinnacle?"
