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 seventh season debuted on August 26, 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. The early episodes of season seven that have aired so far featured a terrible flu take its toll on the dredgers, a promising virgin claim introduced, and a claim border issue coming up.

Current season and renewal prospects

In the current season pressure mounts as million-dollar investments are made, new operations undertaken and remote claims tested. Complicated relationships between veteran miners are not getting any easier either, so the viewers are in for another intense season of pure Bering Sea Gold. The show has a 6.7/10 IMDb rating and averaged 1.4 million viewers per episode and 0.39 in the demo last season. The current season debut drew an audience of 1.276 million viewers, and a mere 0.26 in the demo. Despite the ratings decline, the program seems to retain strong potential and is likely to be renewed. Please stay tuned for announcements on the series` future.
