Series information and premise

Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks (ex-Wicked Tuna: North vs. South) is a popular reality TV series that airs on National Geographic Channel and is a spinoff of the hit Wicked Tuna series. It has been broadcast since 2014, and is currently in its third season, which kicked off on July 26, 2016. Craig Piligian is the executive producer and Pilgrim Studios is behind the production. Each of the three seasons contains 10 one-hour episodes.

The compelling show features the dangers in the professional endeavors of commercial tuna fishermen of Northern California Outer Banks, who fish for Atlantic bluefin tuna. This lucrative business is regulated by strict season quotas, and while the competition element is very strong, the efforts to make the biggest profit are limited. Several boats from the original program also make an appearance in Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks.

Solid ratings and renewal prospects

The popularity of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks is in line with the success of the Wicked Tuna, although the original is hailed by the critics for having a more human aspect to it. The show has a 6.7/10 IMDb score. The current season premiered to 0.976 million viewers, and a month later is averaging above 1 million viewers. The demo rating remained unchanged since the third season premiere and constitutes 0.28 in the 18-49 demographic. The numbers are perfectly on par with the previous season’s, while the demo rating went slightly down compared to season 2. With solid viewership ratings like these, we predict that there is definitely a renewal in the cards. Stay tuned, and we will keep you informed regarding the future of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks.
