It is nearly 2013 and that means we are closing in on another awesome season of River Monsters. The premiere for season 5 of River Monsters should be in late March or early April 2013 as long as the new season keeps the tradition set by the previous 4. I’ve yet to find an official announcement but I am sure one is coming soon.
The locations for the new season also remain a bit of a mystery but thanks to some comments left on the site we have a bit more of an idea where to expect to see Jeremy in season 5.
Jeremy Wade with a Tigerfish he caught in Season 4 of River Monsters.
Just to put my two cents in about season five-they shot in a few different places in the US again, including Lake Champlain where someone reported Jeremy had caught a Gar over 50 inches.
Forgot to mention-a friend of mine shared a flight with Jeremy a couple of weeks ago from the UK to Brazil-so it looks like Brazil will be featured in season five.
So it looks like we can count on not only the US being featured in Season 5 but also Brazil. I hope he goes after the Arapaima Gigas again, I would really love to see a 12′ + monster Arapaima caught to prove they still exist at those sizes. I’d also like to see him catch an even bigger Piraiba catfish.
The one thing we do know, River Monsters is still going and will be back for season 5 for sure. Once exact air dates are released I will post it up but for now it remains a bit of a mystery. If you’ve got any info to add feel free to drop us a comment below.
