Nat Geo Channel has Casey Anderson and Brady Barr, Discovery had Bear Grylls (fired in 2012), and Animal Planet has Jeremy Wade, the handsome Englishman who announced to Facebook fans that another season will be coming on April 7 at 9 PM:

There may come a time when the question of what lurks below is answered. But that time isn’t now. For four successful seasons of Animal Planet’s River Monsters, host, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade has searched for answers, taking viewers along as he unravels fish tales of giant killers – where sometimes the fact is stranger than the fiction!

In its new season, River Monsters takes treacherous and mysterious to new heights with the most dangerous adventures of Wade’s lifetime. His journeys include a mission to Chernobyl’s nuclear wastelands in search of mutant fish in a tick-tock race against time to avoid radiation exposure, a trip to Nicaragua to capture an elusive killer torpedo, and a bloodthirsty quest on American soil in pursuit of a prehistoric underwater vampire. These fantastic voyages kick off on Sunday, April 7, at 9 PM (ET/PT) with the monster-sized season opener – “Face Ripper.”

“I realize there will come a point at which my searching must come to an end – once I’ve found every river monster and all the world’s underwater mysteries are solved,” says Wade. “That time hasn’t come; this season of RIVER MONSTERS continues to drive my quest to reveal the fascinating mysteries of the deep.”

The eye-opening season premiere, “Face Ripper,” brings viewers along as Wade investigates a horrific death in a Bolivian river. In an area crawling with cocaine smugglers, Jeremy treks through the dangerous jungle to discover the fresh water beast that ripped a man’s face to shreds.

Wade is astonished when one of his oldest adversaries reveals some new behavior – but will he already be in too deep to learn a new lesson? It’s a horrific mystery that Wade is intent on solving.

This groundbreaking new season will culminate with a special Memorial Day two-hour season finale on Monday, May 27, at 9 pm ET/PT, which may just uncover the mother of all River Monsters.

For more than 30 years as a professional angler, Wade has gone head to head with the world’s most legendary fish of the rivers – but there’s one legend he has yet to tackle - that of the Loch Ness Monster. 

Wade will take viewers along on an epic mission from the depths of Loch Ness to the volcanoes of Iceland to track down the world’s most famous water-dwelling monster.
