Dive into Shark Week on Discovery

Andrew Buckle,

The pop culture phenomenon, Shark Week – a 24×7 channel takeover with new premieres every night – returns to Discovery Channel from November 27 with even bigger sharks and record-breaking breaches.

Discovery Channel is the preeminent destination for shark programming, working with nearly two dozen of the world’s most respected marine biologists and science institutions. This year’s celebrities include Jackass, Tracy Morgan and the kings of hidden camera pranks – The Impractical Jokers.

Premieres kicking off at 7:30pm AEDT every night of the stunt week include:

Raging Bulls

Bull sharks are one of Australia’s “Big 3” deadly shark species, and recently, there’s been a shift in their behavior concerning the human population. Paul De Gelder joins Johan Gustafson to uncover why these sharks are becoming more aggressive hunters.

Mechashark: Love Down Under

Shark expert Kina Scollay and his elite team return with a unique one-person submersible, the Mechashark, to a top-secret location off New Zealand attempting to do something that’s never been done: locate a great white shark mating ground.

Clash Of Killers: Great White vs Mako

Scientist Dr. Riley Elliott is tracking two of the ocean’s most legendary apex predators — great whites and makos — as they head on a collision​ ​course during their yearly migration off the coast of New Zealand.

Jackass Shark Week

Johnny Knoxville sends Steve-O, Chris Pontius and new Jackass cast members on a Shark Week mission for the ages. They’ll dial up a series of shark stunts that test their bravery and threshold of pain as they put common shark myths to the test.

Jaws v Kraken

Something shocking is happening in the abyss around Guadalupe Island. Photos of great whites with strange scars believed to be from giant squids have surfaced. Dr. Tristan Guttridge leads a mission to get a glimpse into the battles between the two beasts.

Impractical Jokers Shark Week Spectacular

The Impractical Jokers are the kings of Hijinx and fearlessness in the face of public humiliation, but see what happens when they set out to dispel the myth that sharks are man-eating beasts the only way they know how – WITH EXTREME, MORTIFYING CHALLENGES AND DARES.

Great White Battleground

“Sharkologist” Michelle Jewel believes the leaping great whites of South Africa do more than just hunt for their favorite prey. Join Michelle as she embarks on a journey to prove these sharks are actually breaching to communicate with each other.

Island Of The Walking Sharks

In the coral reefs of the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, there are rumors of walking sharks being found outside their previously known range and a strong belief that there are new, undescribed species of the little-known walking sharks. On this expedition, wildlife conservationist and biologist Forrest Galante travels to some of the most remote and deadly waters in the world facing pirates, jungles, storms, snakes, crocs, and of course, sharks – to track down, discover, and document new science, behaviors, and even species.

Rise Of The Monster Hammerheads

Reports of two legendary, very large great hammerheads, Big Moe in the Florida Keys and Sunken in Andros, Bahamas, have Dr. Tristan Guttridge and Andy Casagrande wondering if there is a clan of monster hammerheads who share the same DNA.

Tracy Morgan Presents: Sharks! With Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan teams up with shark experts around the country to identify the craziest and most ferocious sharks in the ocean. From rare species to stealthy predators, Tracy shows off his favorite sharks and their incredible capabilities and adaptations.
