Following 12 seasons of Deadliest Catch, Discovery is expanding the crab fishermen TV franchise to include a brand new spinoff, Dungeon Cove, which will take fans into the world of the most violent stretches of water yet: "Graveyard of the Pacific."
The stretches of open water between Oregon and British Columbia are home to thousands of vessels and lives that have lost the battle with the deadliest commercial fishery in the world.

Dungeon's Cove will go on board the vessels of Dungeness crab fishermen as they navigate the Northeast Pacific sea life and the labyrinth of sandbars and currents. One such challenge, crossing the Newport Bar off the coast of Oregon, is on display in ET's exclusive clip from the premiere, airing Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m. ET.
Located within a mile from shore, this narrow and treacherous stretch of water connects the Newport Harbor with the Pacific Ocean. While closely monitored by the Coast Guard, it’s impossible to tell when danger will strike -- like one of the 30-foot waves known to take down vessels in its path.

Beyond the dangers in the water, Dungeon Cove will also explore the lives of the fishermen and their families who have built their entire existence on Dungeness crab season. With millions of dollars up for grabs each season, the fastest boat takes the crabs and the payday.
Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery.
