Series info and concept

Moonshiners is a Discovery Channel docu-drama that`s been on the air since December 6, 2011. It is produced by Magilla Entertainment, executive produced by Matthew Ostrom, Laura Palumbo and Christopher Tetens, and narrated by Jeremy Schwartz. The current sixth season debuted on November 15, 2016.

The series treads on unusual territory - it follows the people who illegally produce moonshine, which obviously is illegal, in North and South Carolina and Virginia, in the Appalachians. Liquor distillation, evading law, and general day-to-day life decisions and challenges are portrayed in this exciting, albeit not overly so, documentary drama series. The moonshiners have to find a location to build and hide their stills deep in the woods and only then start brewing, which is mostly what they do throughout the series. In the current sixth season moonshiners continue to hone their technique that’s been passed down for generations, and are willing to risk everything to advance their craft and find new innovative solutions for age-old issues.

Ratings, reviews and possible renewal

The series is a hit for Discovery, presumably because in addition to the gritty outdoor profession it spices things up with the illegal aspect of their activities. The current season premiere drew an audience of 1.579 million viewers, and has hovered about the 1.6 million mark so far. The numbers have declined over the course of the last several seasons, but are still top-notch for Discovery. The rather likable characters who claim to be carrying on a 200-year-old tradition are also considered a strong asset of the series. There`s been doubt to whether this is actually a reality show, or a staged fake, partly because there seems to be no explanation of why the participants haven`t all been arrested yet. The answer to that is generally that there`s no actual liquor produced on the show, so there`s no reason to take anyone to court. Very well then, the series has not run its course quite yet, and there`s more moonshine on the way in the potential new seasons.
