From a media release:
The worst winter that Newfoundland has seen in 30 years sets the stage for the return of Discovery’s hit original series, COLD WATER COWBOYS. Bravery reigns in the second season of the riveting Canadian Screen Award-nominated series, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning March 10, as the captains and their crews attempt to arrive at The Rock’s fishing grounds. The clock doesn’t stop ticking as returning Captain Richard Gillet and fellow fishermen – including newcomers Andre and Michelle Jesso, and Morris Antsey – pit themselves against Mother Nature in the hunt for bragging rights, and a fortune of fish in the hold!
Returning to its timeslot where it outperformed all other Canadian Entertainment Specialty channels*, the epic second season of the megahit series from Paperny Entertainment features new boats and new crews joining last year’s stars – each of them determined to prove they have what it takes to be among the COLD WATER COWBOYS. It’s a season filled with bigger, bolder gambles as fishing vessels become icebreakers, harsh conditions take a toll on vital equipment, and crews are pushed to the breaking point. Fishing in Newfoundland has always been a family affair, and this season sons, fathers, brothers, husbands, and wives are on deck to join the race for the best catch.
In anticipation of the hit series’ second season, Discovery.ca presents the Cold Water Cowboys: Atlantic Empire simulation game – a combination of both strategy and skill based gameplay, show characters and locations, along with a strong social media component. Players control their own fishing vessels while going for broke as one of the cold water cowboys in the unforgiving North Atlantic using map-based gameplay to net as much crab, shrimp, turbot, herring, and mackerel to build a fishing dynasty.
