For anyone who missed Rick Ness on the last season of Gold Rush, there is good news. Rick will return for the 2023 mining season and this means he will be back on the show when the next season rolls around later in the year.
Here is what we know about Rick returning to Gold Rush next season.
Rick Ness returning to Gold Rush next season
When Gold Rush wrapped up its current season, fans took to social media to find out if Rick Ness would be back for the next season of the show. This last season of the popular Discovery Channel series reality TV show saw four teams mining for gold, but the popular Rick was not there.
Instead, Parker Schnabel and Tony Beets were back to show everyone how it is done while Fred Lewis and the Clayton Brothers were there as upstarts trying to get their feet under them. While the Clayton Brothers seemed to succeed in the end, most fans were not happy watching Fred, who seemed to make too many poor decisions and dragged the show down.
However, there is good news. When some fans asked on Reddit if Rick would be back for the 2023 mining season, fans mentioned he was coming back and pointed to proof of his return. One fan mentioned that Rick has already posted ads looking for a mechanic in the Yukon, and the ad mentioned they would start working in April.
There was also the fact that Rick’s girlfriend Lesse M. Arie said in January that he was coming back to the show, and that was “the plan.”
Why did Rick Ness miss this season of Gold Rush?
Rick Ness was on this season of Gold Rush, but he was only there for one episode when his crew went looking for him to find out what was going on. Zee did a welfare check on Rick and went to his home where he found his boss working on a car.
Rick said that he wasn’t going to return for the season, with the worst news here being that he left his crew high and dry without any word until they called him out on it. That might make it hard for Rick to find a crew for 2023 because he proved they can’t trust him.
However, they might come back because Rick admitted that he was dealing with mental health issues. Rick said he had seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is a type of depression related to the seasons. He also had a tough time off, as he got engaged to Leese before they broke up and eventually got back together again.
