Ahead of tomorrow’s season premiere, Discovery UK has unveiled a trailer and a series of first look images for the sixth season of their ratings winning unscripted series Gold Rush.
Now entering its sixth season, Gold Rush is showing no signs of slowing down and still ranks as Discovery’s highest rated series globally. The series follows a group of men who, in the face of an economic meltdown, will risk everything to strike it rich mining for gold in the wilds of Alaska.
This season is posed to be one of change, with new teams, new claims, new machines and new ways to pull gold out of the ground. The Hoffmans are ready to shift pay dirt before anyone else, and Dave Turin has a 400 yard cut open, before the ground has even thawed, but Todd’s disappeared again, dreaming big of striking it mega-rich. He has zeroed in on a claim that could be worth millions in gold, but to afford it he needs to double what he made last year and a 1200 yard cut.
Elsewhere, Parker sets out to reinvest his $3 million, but after losing half his crew because of his bad attitude, Parker is left with only a young crew and one real option: to go crawling back to Tony. Tony, meanwhile, has his enormous dredge up and running, turning back the clock 70 years and willing to risk his entire business to invest in a fleet of dredges and overhaul the way mining is done in the Klondike forever.
The new trailer shows Parker failing to convince Gene Cheeseman to return to his crew, before his problems get even worse when his landlord orders him off the claim, which sends him to the man he trusts the most, his grandfather John, for advice. Check out the trailer and the gallery of first look images below
