Ever since ‘The Curse of Oak Island’ landed on History, it has continued to intrigue viewers in one way or the other. We have seen our favorite explorers unearthing significant (and insignificant) bits of evidence from the mysterious land. Moreover, it is not only the treasure-hunting segments of the show that manage to draw our interest. The series is also fascinating for its detailed accounts of the island’s secretive history and sometimes, weird lore — like it could be the hiding place of The Holy Grail.
Owing to this captivating concept, the show has spanned seven remarkable seasons to date — with viewers tuning in to see what this motley crew of treasure hunters will discover next. Read on to know if and when will ‘The Curse of Oak Island’ Season 8 release.
The Curse of Oak Island Season 8 Release Date
‘The Curse of Oak Island’ Season 7 premiered on November 5, 2019, on History. This was preceded by four specials that aired from October 8, 2019, to October 29, 2019. After spanning 23 episodes, the season ended on April 28, 2020.
Each season of ‘The Curse of Oak Island’ is driven by speculation of what might happen next. And there’s still a lot more to be uncovered — something that might take not one but a few more seasons. The final decision depends on History, of course. But the channel is unlikely to pull the plug on a show that is such a huge hit among viewers. We should receive an update in the coming months.
If History renews the show, we can safely predict ‘The Curse of Oak Island’ Season 8 to release sometime in 2021. Although the series, since season 2, has religiously returned every year in November, we expect the premiere date to be pushed back this time because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Curse of Oak Island Season 8 Cast
Leading the crew of treasure hunters in ‘The Curse of Oak Island’ is the Lagina brothers — Rick and Marty. Joining them are Dave Blankenship and Craig Tester. Dan Blankenship had been a regular cast member from seasons 1 to 6 but did not appear in the seventh outing. Leaving Dan, the rest of the above-mentioned stars are expected to make returns in season 8, as and when that happens.
Other professionals occasionally featured in the show are Doug Crowell, Billy Gerhardt, Terry Matheson, Laird Niven, Gary Drayton, Steve Guptil, Paul Troutman, Peter Fornetti, Charles Barkhouse, Dan Henskee, Alex Lagina, and Jack Begley.
What Can The Curse of Oak Island Season 8 be About?
Season 7 takes off after the events of season 6 when seismic testing hints at the possibility of a sunken ship being buried in a swamp. The crew uses sonic testing, metal detecting, and archaeological digging to scour the island for more evidence. They manage to find spikes that might have belonged to burnt ships. They also locate a blocked tunnel in Samuel Ball’s property. But sadly, the crew is not able to make a historical breakthrough as they had hoped at the beginning of their expedition.
Season 8, when renewed, is expected to follow the team as they make yet another attempt to bring closure to this 225-year-old mystery.
