Basic info and cast
Bering Sea Gold is an American reality television show that follows modern day gold mining under extreme weather conditions. Produced by Original Productions, a Fremantle Media company, the series has aired on the Discovery Channel since its premiere on January 27, 2012. Narrated by Mike Rowe (since season 3) and filmed in Nome, Alaska, the sixth season debuted on March 30, 2016.
Every summer, as the glacial ice melts, a handful of fortune seekers hunt for gold in the most unlikely of places — at the bottom of the Bering Sea. From the creators of the Deadliest Catch comes a reality TV show that chronicles unique characters as they dive to the frigid ocean floor, spending hours hunting for gold using a fleet of boats that are equipped to mine in the shallow waters of cold northern climates. Each episode features challenges that arise as a result of poor underwater visibility, inconsistent fuel delivery, personnel issues, mining location rights, diver safety and ocean-damaging equipment failures
Current season and renewal prospects
In the current season pressure mounts as million-dollar investments are made, new operations undertaken and remote claims tested.

The show has a 6.7/10 IMDb rating and is currently averaging 1.4 million viewers per episode with a 0.39 rating in the 18-49 demographic. It seems to have wonderful potential and is likely to be renewed. Please stay tuned for announcements on the series` future.
