From a media release:
The worst winter that Newfoundland has seen in 30 years sets the stage for the return of Discoveryâ€™s hit original series,Â COLD WATER COWBOYS. Bravery reigns in the second season of the riveting Canadian Screen Award-nominated series, airingÂ Tuesdays atÂ 10 p.m. ET/PTÂ beginningÂ March 10, as the captains and their crews attempt to arrive at The Rockâ€™s fishing grounds. The clock doesnâ€™t stop ticking as returning Captain Richard Gillet and fellow fishermen â€“ including newcomers Andre and Michelle Jesso, and Morris Antsey â€“ 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 fromÂ Paperny EntertainmentÂ features new boats and new crews joining last yearâ€™s stars â€“ each of them determined to prove they have what it takes to be among theÂ COLD WATER COWBOYS. Itâ€™s a season filled with bigger, bolder gambles as fishing vessels become icebreakers, harsh conditions take a toll on vital equipment, and crewsÂ 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 seriesâ€™ second season,Â Discovery.caÂ presents theÂ Cold Water Cowboys: Atlantic EmpireÂ simulation game â€“ 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 toÂ net as much crab, shrimp, turbot, herring, and mackerel to build a fishing dynasty.
