Jeremy Wade will return once again with another new season of River Monsters on Animal Planet in 2014. It remains to be the biggest hit show on Animal Planet, peaking over 2 million viewers for the finale of season 5. The average viewership of season 5 was also very strong, averaging 1.8 million viewers.
It’s hard to speculate what Jeremy will go after this year, he has fished for nearly all the monsters out there at this point. I’d imagine there may be some repeat fish from previous seasons along with a couple surprises. The debut episode should air late April or early May if they follow previous years schedules. There is no announcement on the exact date quite yet. It is also not known how many episodes this season will have. I’d say a safe guess is 5-6, considering last year only had 6 original episodes.
If you’ve got any ideas of what he might be fishing for this year please leave a comment below. We’ll be updating with new posts as more information becomes available as well.
