Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand, who are currently being sued by Discovery for $3 million for not finishing their voice-over work for their spin-off "Hillstranded", and Capt Sig Hansen have all left the show because of said lawsuit.

In case you don't want to click the link, here is their joint statement:

    "We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in 'Deadliest Catch,'" the three crab fishermen said in a joint written statement. "It has been a fantastic ride, and we wish the best to all of the amazing and supportive 'Catch' fans we have met over the years."


Sig was also a technical advisor to the show.

With the death of Capt. Phil Harris, unless more boats are featured, we are left with:

Cornelia Marie: ??? Because of repairs needed, it might not go out this season.
Kodiak: Wild Bill
Wizard: Colburn brothers

That doesn't look like great TV. The Sea Star was featured for a few seasons, but I can't remember that boat.

The Sea Star, captained by Larry Hendricks, has been a chase boat the last few seasons instead of doing the actual fishing. Larry has also been featured in the 'After the Catch' specials.

Keith Colburn is a whiny jerk. I have zero interest in watching him. I do feel bad for the Harris boys if this affects the show as I'm sure they could use the money.

...ANDDDDDDDD, they're back.

The lawsuit is dropped and the Hillstrands will do their voice-over work and all three captains are coming back for the new season.
