Gold Rush will be back on Discovery with a new season on October 23rd. The mining crews will be taking on high-risk gambles and battling it out to earn a fortune within a tight deadline in the brand-new season of the reality show. But the COVID-19 pandemic is already creating insurmountable odds for the miners.
The lockdown to prevent the transmission of coronavirus had affected the mining industry as well. The goldfields were locked for two months of the mining season while the lockdown drained the American economy. With gold prices skyrocketing and fuel price failing, the miners will try to ensure they have the biggest haul of gold by the end of the season.
In the eleventh season, Parker Schnabel, Tony Beets and Rick Ness will be joined by ex-special forces medic and greenhorn miner Fred Lewis, and his force of veteran miners, who are raring to try their luck on the gold mines.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected all of North America, with unemployment and acute savings crunches rampant all over the continent. The desperation to strike gold is high this time. Will Tony be able to meet his goals this time? Or will Parker continue his winning streak in this season as well? Or will the newcomers beat the seasoned miners to the motherlode?
To know, you will have to tune in to the Discovery channel on October 23rd at 8 pm ET/PT.
If you have not watched the thrilling show yet, seasons 1 to 10 are available to stream on Discovery GO, Philo and fuboTV.
