About the series
The Curse of Oak Island is a hit Canadian reality treasure hunting series broadcast on the History Channel since January 5, 2014. The series is produced by Prometheus Entertainment and executive produced by Kevin Burns. The current fourth season has aired on November 15, 2016. The premiere episode was preceded by a one-hour pre-show that provided a recap of last season events and brought new viewers up to date.
Marty and Rick Lagina are very serious about solving the 220-year mystery of Oak Island, a small island off the Nova Scotia coast surrounded by a number of sometimes conflicting legends. There is supposedly a treasure buried somewhere on the island, but even the nature of this treasure is far from clear – anywhere from pirate gold to King Solomon`s temple treasure to lost Shakespeare manuscripts. There have been numerous small discoveries already made, but no signs of the major coveted treasure. There`s also a sprinkle of the supernatural, as per the reports of the area residents.
Current season, reviews and possible renewal
The Lagina Brothers are going all out this season with more than 450 tons of unique high-tech equipment aimed at excavating the Money Pit, after a gold object was discovered during the last installment, instilling new hopes for the future.
The unscripted series Curse of the Oak Island has been a ratings hit for the History Channel continually through the three completed seasons. Even though the show`s been criticized for being overblown, thinly spread and lacking actual substance, viewers seem to find it truly compelling. The Curse of Oak Island was not merely a hit for History in the previous seasons, it was the #1 nonfiction program in key demos across all cable networks on Tuesday nights. The current season opened with an audience of 2,62 million viewers tuning in and a solid 0.71 demo rating, right behind the cable sports transmissions. The following episodes saw an increase to 2.66 and 2.97 million viewers. Whether or not there is a fifth season depends on whether the series continues to fare just as well throughout the whole current season, but it is clear that it`s not losing any steam. The legend is over 220 years old, and there`s certainly enough mystery and still untapped shafts to last for years – and seasons – to come.
