The Curse of Oak Island Season 10 will not be airing a new episode on the History Channel this Tuesday, March 21. In fact, fans of the show will have to do without a fresh episode for a whole week.
But don’t worry; the Fellowship of the Dig will be back on the hunt for the Money Pit the following week.
We are 17 episodes into Season 10 of The Curse of Oak Island, and it has been an action-packed season so far. The main thrust of the Lagina brothers’ focus has been the rehabilitation of the garden shaft by the Dumas mining company.
The team hit a few stumbling blocks, mostly due to local government bureaucracy, but they are now thundering down that shaft. And they are already finding traces of gold.
A lot of the evidence seems to suggest now that the original Money Pit is either at the bottom of this shaft or is very close by.
Unfortunately, just as things seemed to be hotting up on the island, the History Channel has decided to take a mid-season break.
So, why is this week’s Oak Island not on TV?
Ever since Season 7, the Oak Island series has taken a mid-season break. The break usually occurs in February, which is about halfway through, but this year it has been pushed forward into March.
The number of episodes in each season has been gradually increasing with the passing years, and once they started producing more than 20 shows a year, the History Channel began taking a winter/spring break.
As it happens, fans of the show can still get their Oak Island fix, as the History Channel is putting on an episode of The Curse of Oak Island: Drilling Down. This show, hosted by Matty Blake, will offer viewers a look behind the scenes.
The History Channel synopsis for Drilling Down reads:
“Matty Blake joins the Laginas and their team to get an exclusive “behind the scenes” look at a day of film production for The Curse of Oak Island.”
Normal service will resume next week when The Curse of Oak Island Season 10, Episode 18 airs on March 28. That episode will be called “A Quadrilateral Move.”
When will The Curse of Oak Island Season 10 finish?
The current Oak season will likely contain 24 or 25 episodes and will probably end early to mid-May.
Seasons 8 and 9 both featured a whopping 25 episodes, and there’s no reason to doubt that the current season won’t feature the same number. Although, there has not been an official announcement about the length of Season 10 from the History Channel.
If the current season does feature 25 episodes, then fans can expect the season finale to air on May 16. This would be a bit later than previous years; seasons 8 and 9 finished on May 4 and May 3, respectively, so perhaps we will have fewer episodes this year.
The Curse of Oak Island will return on Tuesday, March 28, on History.
Ahh thanks, panicked there for a minute! Sounds like they are trying out a new narrator for the behind the scenes episode.
I never understand why they take weeks off what is the reason the fans never know it’s coming and it’s always disappointing maybe it would be more tolerable if there was an actual reason seems to me like it’s just pushing the play button I don’t know why you need a week off mid season
Totally agree. Also don’t understand the logic about why a March break has anything to do with footage obviously from 2022. They filmed this episode we’re waiting last year. Love the show but the production side is lame. It’s pure laziness, including making us wait for no good reason and considering half of each show is a recap of the previous shows we just watched.
I don’t understand why there are so many camercles. They play three min. Of program and five min. camercles.
Whenever Matty Blake shows up, there’s too much talking about things already aired. It’s very disappointing.
He’s on “Cocaine” talks too much. Those other treasure shows he does…they never find anything . Ten minutes of show and 50 minutes of commercials!
Bring Back Treasure Quest, Gold of World War 2, Cooper’s Treasure, Civil War Gold. They all got cancelled.
Loved Civil War Gold with the help of the Laginas. Can not remember the guys name but he was hell bent on diving in Lake Michegan to get that rail car!
Love Oak Island, can not get enough of it but do get frustrated by the drawn out episodes going over old ground. Just get in there and find out the what, who, why and when………
Has the small well on lot 26 been sampled for silver? My thinking is that silver has been used to reduce bacteria in drinking water [ex. A canteen]. Wondering if the silver content in both wells is perhaps there for that purpose?
Any treasure was removed many years ago. It was removed secretly so as not to have to pay any taxes or maybe not to pay investors or owners their share.
Serious gold miners, or miners of any mineral for that matter, can open up a hole the size of the entire island and it can be hundreds of feet deep. These clowns are dragging ass, every show repeats 30% of previous shows, lame narration takes up another 30%, and nice views of the scenery takes up a portion. plus these guys are scatter brained, digging pot holes all over the island and pretending rusted pieces of junk are valuable clues.
If you don’t like it then quit wasting your time. There are plenty of us that don’t miss an episode. I’m 71 with a bad heart (heart attack 3 months ago) and I know my time is limited. I hope I live long enough to see the mystery solved.
I like the fact there trying to solve more then just the treasure mystery. I’ve watched from the beginning and I’ll watch to the end.
They never say the “cross they found” could have fallen off a tourists neck on a boat round his neck and ended up on Shore! Duh!
Anyone beyond their tweens named Matty should be avoided at all costs.
Yellowstone 2. Bothbarely show anything as it is
Thought they “cancelled the series” in midstream. All they find is wood. The “treasure was moved years ago”. “Gold Rush” should be taken out to pasture and shot! Boring. Fix machines, dig, fix machines, dig years of this nonsense.
I love this show. Even if they don’t find anything, the history is fantastic. I have learned so much from this show. Matty is kind of a dork. Why does he have to try each job.he kind of acts like a kid. I think they were getting tired of him bugging them. Lol but bet he is a nice guy though.
Matty’s pee-pants excitement gets really old.
Really wish they would quit calling an excavator a digger, a excavator does excavations. Drives me nuts.
DEFY channel is where I catch the Curse of Oak Island ? show. It’s been off here in Missouri for 2 weeks now. Seems longer. Really hoping it does come back.on. Hate to hear it might end in May.
I’ve also been watching on DEFY and noticed the show’s recent absence as well. It’s been replaced here in Iowa by that stupid “Storage Wars, Texas” show. It’s been reported the producers of that show deliberately hide stuff in the lockers for the buyers to “find”. it supposedly makes for better television. It only makes for crap. The Oak Island show is priceless for the interesting history that we learn from it. I hope Defy TV brings Oak Island back – I’m going through withdrawal!!
Oak Island is missing off DEFY channel in Oregon. In its place are really dumb shows like “Storage Wars”, which I find to be disgusting and offensive. Ice Road Truckers gets boring really quick. Please DEFY, bring back Oak Island so that we are not stuck watching idiots making Donkeys out of themselves!
So frustrated with Defy. Was addicted to this show. Without explanation, they stopped showing. Subscribed to History & History vault
via Roku but can’t get current Season 10 Ep 18 on. WTH???
