Disney has announced that the twelfth season of the hit National Geographic series, “Wicked Tuna”, will be coming to Disney+ in the United States on Wednesday, 16th August 2023.
“Wicked Tuna” follows a group of salty fishermen from the nation’s oldest seaport, Gloucester, Massachusetts, as they make their living the way it’s been done for centuries-rod and reel fishing, one catch at a time-all in pursuit of the bluefin tuna. One “monstah” bluefin can be worth more than $20,000, and with that kind of money on the line, every captain is fighting to be the best in the fleet.
The series has celebrated one of America’s oldest industries since first premiering in 2012 and made stars of the intrepid Gloucester commercial fishermen who brave the unrelenting North Atlantic waters to catch the elusive bluefin tuna.
The latest season has previously aired on the National Geographic channel, and the previous eleven seasons are available to stream on Disney+ now.
