Deadliest Catch Season 5 Premiere Announced

deadliest catchFor those who have been dying to know, Deadliest Catch season 5 premieres Tuesday, April 14, at 9 p.m. E/P.

If this seems an odd thing for me to scream from the rooftops, let me explain.  Back in December I wrote a post called Deadliest Catch Ramps Up For Season 5.  Even since that post went up, I have been swamped with search engine traffic of people looking to find out when the new season would be starting.  Well, just tonight, the official blog of the series announced the date: Tuesday, April 14, at 9 p.m. E/P.

They also announced what crab boats were in this season, something I had speculated on in that same post, and there were a couple surprises.

The Returning Deadliest Catch Boats

Cornelia Marie – After the health scares for Capt. Phil Harris in season 4, it was uncertain if this ship would return this year, but, sure enough, here they are.  Shall we predict the number of engine problems now?

Northwestern – Was there ever any real doubt that Sig Hansen and Edgar Hansen would be back this year?  I predict at some point in the season, Matt, the surly deckhand, will be… well… surly.

The Wizard – The ship is still captained by Keith Colburn, so I predict 1) fights with his brother and 2) a useless greenhorn.

Time Bandit – Kind of like the Hansen brothers, it’s hard to imagine this show without Andy Hillstrand and Johnathon Hillstrand, co-captains of the Time Bandit.

New Ships Joining Deadliest Catch Season 5

Lisa Maria – I wrote about the Lisa Maria here.  She’s a small boat at only 55 pots, should be interesting.

Trailblazer – Remember in season 3 when the Time Bandit raced to save a deckhand that fell off a boat?  That boat was the 133-foot house aft boat, Trailblazer, captained by Wayne Baker.

Ships Not Returning For Deadliest Catch Season 5

Early Dawn – There is next to no information on this boat, or Capt. Rick Fehst, but they are gone from the show.

North American – Season 4 was the first, and apparently last,  season for this ship, and its captain, Sten Skaar.

Deadliest Catch season 5 premieres Tuesday, April 14, at 9 p.m. E/P

I wait all year for this show, so I am excited that we are just weeks away.  I love knowing whivh ships to expect, and I’m not sure why we lost the two boats we did, but at least we kept what have kind of become the core group of 4.  Although I could do without The Wizard at times.  Make sure to tune in and catch Deadliest Catch Season 5!

UPDATE 02/10/10Capt. Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie has passed away

    I was looking forward to the premiere of deadliest catch season 5 on April 14, at 9 pm. EP. However , I looked at the discovery channel show schedule and the first deadliest catch episode that I can see is April 21.
    Also, when I was watching discovery channel today, I believed they mentioned another program at 9 pm.EP instead of deadliest catch premiere. I you can, could you clarify me on this as soon as possible, please.
    Thank you,

    Geraldine

    • Everything here is being advertised as beginning on the 14th. I notice from your email address you are in Canada, maybe it starts later there?

  • Tim Zaverousky

    I was saddened today of the passing of Phil Harris . He was my favorate captain of the fleet. The show will not be the same without him. I hope The Discovery Channel has some kind of special on him in the near future.

    waiting to see if they are filming a new series of the Deadliest Catch since Capt. Phil Harris passed away in Jan of this year and I think I remember hearing that they start a new season every Sept or Oct. Is that correct? I hope the continue this show as it is my favorite of anything on TV. Well I also like Ice road truckers. I was so sorry to see and know that Capt Phil passed away, he was so young and now I wonder about his sons and pray they will be alright. I like MIke Rowe too. It's okay I am a 70 year old grandma.
