When the Alaskan Red King Crab fishery shuts down for the first time in 25 years, Bering Sea veteran Captain Sig Hansen is forced to look for opportunities elsewhere. Deciding to risk it all, he sets his sights on a promising new fishing ground where King Crab is an invasive species: his ancestral home of Norway. DEADLIEST CATCH: THE VIKING RETURNS premieres Tuesday, September 13 at 9:00PM ET/PT after a new episode of Deadliest Catch on Discovery and will be available to stream the same day on discovery+.
By traveling across the world and returning to the land of his father, Sig hopes to not just to fill the void of a lost season, but to build a fishing empire greater than his ancestors could have ever imagined. But as daughter and co-captain Mandy struggles to start her own family, beginning anew in the land of their forefathers becomes an unexpected journey to rediscover their own heritage and cement the legacy they’ll pass down to the next generation of fishermen.
Along with Mandy, her husband Clark, and former right-hand man Jake Anderson, Sig must search the past to find the key to their future and ensure that the legacy his father built withstands the test of time. Will the Hansen family succeed like those that came before them or will these harrowing seas tear them apart?
