Mysterious island fortune drives dangerously deep dig on History
- Third Season of The Curse of Oak Island Premieres Sunday November 15th at 10pm ET/PT
Deep below the surface of the elusive Oak Island, located off the coast of Nova Scotia, lies a mysterious fortune that has captivated treasure hunters for more than two centuries. This fall, The Curse of Oak Island promises the deepest search to date with dangerous explorations, new theories and ground-breaking discoveries. Following the second season’s success as HISTORY’s #1 series last fall, the new, 13-episode season of The Curse of Oak Island premieres Sunday, November 15 at 10pm ET/PT.
Dating back to 1795, just after the piracy era, the treasure hunt on Oak Island began when three boys discovered a man-made hole, now dubbed the “money pit”, which revealed intriguing artifacts. Since then, many people have attempted to uncover the mysterious treasure but all have left empty-handed. The island is also said to enforce a prophecy that declares seven people must die before the treasure is found. Six treasure hunters have already lost their lives in the search and, for new explorers, the hunt is more perilous than ever before.
This season, brothers Rick and Marty Lagina are determined to solve the island’s secrets despite the notorious curse and evidence of deadly booby-traps looming large. With new experts on their team and the latest high-tech equipment, the brothers are set to launch an unprecedented dig in the “money pit” and surrounding areas to solve the 220-year-old mystery. Legend has it that the island holds anything from buried pirate treasure to priceless religious artifacts, but how deep are the brothers willing to go before they find what lies beneath?
To catch up on The Curse of Oak Island, tune-in to a marathon of the first two seasons on Saturday, November 14th beginning at 10am ET/7am PT. Visit history.ca for full cast biographies, videos and web exclusives.
