The 9th season of Deadliest Catch casts off Tuesday, April 23, 2013 on Discovery in Canada (it premieres Apr 16 in the United States). The new season of Deadliest Catch features familiar faces. Keith is back with The Wizard, the Hillstrand brothers are back with the Time Bandit, “Wild” Bill Wichrowski (no longer with the Kodiak) returns as captain of a new boat – The Cape Caution, Edgar and Jake look to captain Sig’s Northwestern, Elliot Neese (former Captain of the Ramblin’ Rose) returns as captain of his own boat the Saga, and Scott Campbell Jr. is back with a newly rebuilt Seabrooke trying to defend his title.
The biggest change for season 9 of Deadliest Catch is the addition of The Bait which is a 1 hour show leading into the new episode of Deadliest Catch. On The Bait the captains and crews will discuss the upcoming episode but it will not be shown every week. Currently The Bait is scheduled to air on April 23, May 7, May 21, June 11, and July 2 (schedule is subject to change).
