River Monsters : Season 5 has yet to be announced but I am confident Animal Planet will be bringing it back for another year. There are numerous Monsters left for Jeremy to search for along with some unfinished business with others. Once the season begins we’ll be doing our episode summaries as we did for season 4. I imagine the season will premiere somewhere around April, so long as Jeremy is returning for season 5 that is. You can click the links below to check out some early posts we’ve already done discussing season 5 of River Monsters.
Update : Season 5 is officially over, you can check out the video page here, we add the new videos as Animal Planet releases them. We’ll have River Monsters : Season 6 info out as soon as anything is announced.
