The Hansens may follow Norwegian fishing traditions like biting the head off of a herring at the beginning of the season, but are they prepared to do what is necessary to make big money in the land of their heritage? Can their past help them to save their future livelihood?
That’s right! Sig and Mandy Hansen are headed back to Norway for Discovery’s Deadliest Catch: The Viking Returns. They are taking a risk, but will this be too tough on the Hansen clan?
What do we know about this upcoming new spinoff, including the premiere date?
Deadliest Catch: The Viking Returns Is New Spinoff
Fans of the F/V Northwestern, and Captain Sig and his daughter, Captain Mandy, will want to watch their new spinoff called The Viking Returns.
According to The Futon Critic, for the first time in 25 years, the Alaskan Red King Crab fishery shuts down. This triggers Captain Sig into action. He looks around to see what else is out there. Mandy just had a baby girl, and now he realizes that three generations need to live off of the family’s fishing profits.
Always proud of his Norwegian roots, it is no surprise that Sig looks to his homeland. In Norway, King Crab is an invasive species.
Sig decides to seize this opportunity and venture into this new fishing ground. Most of all, they are risking it all to go into the unknown. However, staying and watching the fishery shutdowns are not an option.
Who Is Joining Captain Sig And Captain Mandy?
Heading out on this Norwegian adventure with Captain Sig Hansen, and his daughter, Captain Mandy Hansen is Clark Pederson, Mandy’s husband, and Captain Jake Anderson, who learned the ropes from Sig.
Captain Sig is like a father figure to Jake. Bringing the two together always results in special Discovery moments.
Deadliest Catch: The Viking Returns Is ‘Unexpected Journey’
In this new series, Sig and Mandy venture into the unknown to help change the Hansen family’s destiny. Moreover, Sig doesn’t just want to break even. He wants to create something big.
By traveling across the world and returning to the land of his father, Sig hopes 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.
