UPDATED with official press announcement:
HISTORY(R)’S #1 SERIES “THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND” RETURNS FOR SEASON FIVE ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 7 AT 9PM ET/PT
New York, NY – October 4, 2017 – Brothers Rick and Marty Lagina are taking their historic quest to solve the 222-year old Oak Island mystery to epic new depths when HISTORY’s #1 series “The Curse of Oak Island” returns for season five premiering on Tuesday, November 7 at 9 PM ET/PT. Across all platforms, the last season of “The Curse of Oak Island” averaged 5.4 million viewers per episode and is the network’s #1 series in key demographics. “The Curse of Oak Island” is a top five nonfiction series this year on cable and averaged 4.4 million total viewers last season in Live+7 delivery. Additionally, the series reached 35 million total viewers in linear Live+7, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Armed with the knowledge gained and evidence gathered in their years on Oak Island, the Lagina’s and their partners, are doubling down with new technology and heavy machinery as they go full bore into what they believe is the famed Money Pit – a 160 foot deep hole first discovered by three teenage boys in the late 1700’s – which is believed to be hiding a cache of valuable items. This season, while specialized drilling rigs dig deeper than ever before, new artifacts, including a Pirate’s chest and a set of keys for three other chests, surface that deepen the mystery. What the Lagina’s will unearth this season may ultimately answer the question that hundreds of searchers – including President Franklin Delano Roosevelt – have been asking for over two centuries: what’s really hidden at the bottom of Oak Island?
“The Curse of Oak Island” is produced for HISTORY by Prometheus Entertainment. Kevin Burns, Joe Lessard and Kim Sheerin serve as executive producers for Prometheus. Matt Ginsburg and Jennifer Wagman are executive producers for HISTORY.
Stay tuned as we now monitor the renew/cancel status of Curse of Oak Island Season 6…

It’s more than an awesome historical Templar/pirate treasure story…it’s also a journey about keeping the faith through the eyes of Rick Lagina despite all the adversity. Imagine spending millions of your own money to pursue one of your dreams…and having an incredible focus through the ups and downs throughout your pursuit. It’s an incredible show that brings forth a reality on many levels both seen and unseen. Prometheus Entertainment is making incredible endeavors in its historical and reality shows. Thank You for keeping The Curse of Oak Island alive…you have the world watching!
I love the show and watch religiously. I wish I was there to enjoy it with them. Thanks for letting my dream vicariously through you.
Wonderful news! 50+ years ago,I read the same article that Rick & Marty read. I was fascinated, but lacked the resources to do anything about it. Next season can’t start soon enough for me.
