"Deadliest Catch" is a multiple Emmy Award-winning reality docu-series on Discovery Channel.

Season 12

In Season 12, a new generation is stepping up and claiming their seat at the table. But do they have the drive and guts that it takes to become a legend?

What the young guys lack in experience, they make up for in drive and eagerness. This season, the series welcomes a new skipper to town. Just 23 years old, Sean Dwyer of the Brenna A is the youngest captain ever in the history of the series. Following in the footsteps of his recently-departed father, the young rookie has fished all his life but never as a captain on the Bering Sea. Now he embarks upon the Holy Grail of commercial fishing in a vessel that hasn't fished crab in eight years and manned by an all-rookie crew. Added pressure comes from the fact that his 290,000 lb. quota comes from Sig.

Sean isn't the only one feeling the heat. Breaking free of Sig's mentoring grip is Jake Anderson who takes his first full season at the helm of the Saga. Last season, Jake fought to prove his worth as a fisherman, father and captain. Now that he's been given a shot, he needs to prove his worth as a leader. But can he command a crew he also sees as his friends?

Meanwhile on the Cornelia Marie, young skipper Josh Harris steps out of the shadows to claim his birthright on the legendary vessel once commanded by his father, the late Captain Phil Harris. The boat has finally gotten an overhaul - complete with new electronics and engine room. But making the boat like new comes with a steep price. To pay for the overhaul, Josh had to sell a majority of the boat to investors meaning if they can't find crab, the investors will find someone else who can.

Over on the Cape Caution, a new year brings a new crew for long-time Captain Wild Bill Wichrowski. This season, Wild Bill turns to his son Zach Larson to find and train the boat's crew. But the teaching process hasn't been quite so easy for the teacher or the students. Can Zach prove he's up to the challenge to finally take over the wheel house?

Captain Keith Colburn of The Wizard is struggling with life both on and off the deck. Keith hopes for a fresh start this season after recently breaking up with his wife of 25 years and accepting that his kids are all grown up. Millions of dollars-worth of crab on the line, and Keith's crew is ready to go on day one. But before they can leave, they need their captain ... who is nowhere to be found.

On the Time Bandit, Jonathan Hillstrand and his brother Andy, find themselves in a dicey situation that could not only cost them a quarter million dollars but that could potentially cost them their fishing license. Will Jonathan make the right decision? Or will this force them to call it quits before the season even started? And finally on the Northwestern, salty Captain Sig Hansen makes a bold decision to search for crab on grounds that he hasn't been to in over a decade. Was it the right choice? Or was there good reason why he's avoided it this long?

While experience battles youth this season, Mother Nature wages war. The warm waters of El NiƱo push the crab deeper, making the catch even more elusive. Each boat will have to fight even harder for every crab that comes over the rail. Injuries, breakdowns and chaotic weather plague the fleet, proving once and for all that in the Bering Sea legends can be built ... But they also can be broken.
