Books were written about the island offshore of Nova Scotia in Canada. Plus there’s been a long history of hunters keen to find treasure.

Season 11 of Curse of Oak Island brought some interesting theories to History Channel viewers. Rick, Marty, and his team of experts hoped to prove that the Vikings worked with the Knights Templar to transport and hide their treasure. However, many skeptics think the show just generates more and more theories. So, some of them doubt the treasure exists. Additionally, fewer of them seem to believe in any curse: unless it’s a curse that brings bad luck to treasure hunters.

Do Rick & Marty Lagina Believe In The Curse?

Collider did some work checking into the origin of the curse and whether Rick and Marty Lagina ever believed in it. According to the outlet, the curse claims that “seven people” must die and “all the oak trees” must disappear before any treasure of note is found.

It turns out that neither Rick nor Marty take the curse seriously. While Rick wants to believe in it, more people died than seven and the oak trees are still standing. Additionally, he didn’t know where the tale of a curse originated. Meanwhile, Marty seems unconvinced that there’s any curse at all.

The outlet noted his skepticism, writing, “Marty, on the other hand, chalks it up to potential bad luck. No matter what, they will not give up uncovering their treasure.”

Is Season 12 Cursed To Be The Last?

On the bad luck note, there seems to be a lot of it going around. A recent rumor is that as there will only be 10 episodes in Season 12, the show is cursed to end in Season 13. On Reddit, History Channel viewers agree that the underground structures might be natural and not worth investigating further.
