Great news River Monsters fans, Jeremy Wade will be back again next year. It was announced River Monsters has been renewed for yet another season, which will premiere in spring of 2016. It’s really impressive how long the show has been going on now, it has even outlasted many prime time television shows. It is a testament to how much people are intrigued by monster fish.
Season 8 is said to focus on Saltwater fish for the first time, which isn’t surprising. He has pretty much ran through all the giant Freshwater fish there is. Not to mention the terrors of the Ocean are larger and scarier than most anything in Freshwater. I have to imagine he’ll be catching some Sharks, Groupers, Rays, and who knows what else. There should be some exciting moments for sure considering Jeremy almost never leaves without a catch.
The exact premiere date isn’t known yet but expect an April or May date once it is settled. That is typically when the premiere episode airs, followed by 5-7 more episodes to round out the season. As more information is available we will update this post.
