The boats face serious obstacles

We’ve got all the details on the upcoming season, including a video preview

What happens in Deadliest Catch Season 18?

According to The Futon Critic, Deadliest Catch captains have spent the past 17 years dealing with big waves, “intense rivalries” and tough odds

However, nothing compares to the obstacles in Season 18

For the first time in 25 years, the Alaska government has canceled the red crab season

First, wily Captain Sig Hansen returns to his Norwegian roots

The captain of the  F/V Northwestern heads to Norway in search of red king crab

He does not bring his famous boat to the land of the Hansens

Instead, Sig must start from scratch and convert an old Coast Guard ship into a fishing vessel Then he must forget his knowledge of the Bering Sea and learn where the crabs live in the Barents Sea In the end, he must find a reliable team of fishermen

To add to the drama, Sig wants to be home in time for the birth of his granddaughter

Yes, his daughter Captain Mandy Hansen Pederson is having a baby!

However, the golden king crab lives four times deeper than the red one

They are Captain Johnathan Hillstrand with the F/V Time Bandit, and Captains Josh Harris and Casey McManus and the F/V Cornelia Marie

Captain Jake Anderson and the F/V Saga are back

His solution is cod fishing

However, the ship has neither quota nor tools for their fishing

So Jake turns to Captain Sean Dwyer of the F/V Elinore J

Jake asks Sean about securing the black cod bid

However, Captain Sean will only accept this deal if Captain Jake puts everything on the line

In addition, Jake’s crew will have to learn how to fish for black cod

Otherwise, Jake Anderson may be forced to drop the F/V saga

Captain Sean Dwyer of the F/V Elinore J will not be fishing for black cod, but instead, Dungeness crab

However, they are easy to catch

Maybe they could make this financially beneficial if they catch a lot of this crab

Last season, Capt Rip Cartson of the F/V Patricia Lee lost a crew member on deck

Lastly, Captain Keith Colburn’s vessel, the F/V Wizard, still needs some repairs

However, Captain Keith is determined to catch bairdi snow crab this season

What adventures will Captain F/V Wizard have this season?

Captain Savage Bill Wichrowski and F/V Summer Breeze are not in the Deadliest Catch Season 18 preview

Moreover, the popular captain did not post any information on his Instagram

They discovered that this season there are a lot of new faces, but also some old ones

For example, Capt Andy Hillstrand is back with brothers Neal and Capt Johnathan, fishing on the F/V Time Bandit

Captain Sig Hansen and his daughter Captain Mandy Hansen are together again on the F/V Northwestern

Don’t forget that Captain Jake Anderson is back and mentoring the future captain

For those who haven’t heard the shocking news, Captain Josh Harris has been fired from the Discovery series

He, along with Captain Casey McManus, starred in two series, including OG and Bloodline

However, what’s more shocking than Josh’s firing is the reason he’s not on the show

What’s the shocking reason Josh Harris was fired from Deadliest Catch?

Why was Josh Harris fired from the deadliest catch?

Deadliest Catch fans gearing up for the Season 19 premiere on April 18 may be surprised to find out that the F/V Cornelia Marie is not returning

This means that Josh Harris, Captain Phil’s eldest son, has not returned

Why didn’t Josh return to the Discovery series?

There’s a shocking tidbit that fans of the series may have missed last fall

Turns out Josh Harris was keeping a secret

What’s more, no one seemed to know about it until it was posted on social media in August 2022

Back in August, a now-deleted Reddit post revealed that in 1998, Josh Harris was arrested and found guilty of sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl

Harris would have been between 15-16 years old at the time of this incident

According to Cinema Blend, which was first reported by Factz, they report that Harris “digitally, vaginally and orally raped a four-year-old girl on 7/14/1998” DNA evidence including blood and semen was found at the scene

Therefore, Josh Harris was formally arrested in 1999

So it was about a family that would trust the Harris family

In an affidavit, the very young girl told investigators that Josh made her call their genitals “pee-pee” After that, it’s not clear whether Harris was required to register as a sex offender

Many fans of the series know that Harris is now the father of a young girl, which may seem disturbing to many

Discovery Channel releases statement about Josh Harris

What became clear, however, was that Discovery never vetted its reality stars

Still, they had something to say about Harris

What did Discovery say about Josh Harris after the Deadliest Catch star’s past caught up with him?

A representative for Discovery released a statement about Harris

Josh will not appear in future episodes of this series

it’s unknown if Discovery will decide to remove the disgraced former reality star from its current lineup, as Harris was for nearly 200 episodes of the OG series

— Discovery Channel UK (@DiscoveryUK) August 13, 2019

The former star of Deadliest Catch is silent on social media

With one exception, Josh Harris has been silent on social media since the news broke in September 2022

On February 11, he posted a photo of his father, the adorable Captain Phil Harris, on Instagram

The F/V Cornelia Marie will not be part of Deadliest Catch season 19
