(New York, New York, February 28, 2013) – There may come a time when the question of what lurks below is answered. But that time isn’t now. For four successful seasons of Animal Planet’s RIVER MONSTERS, host, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade has searched for answers, taking viewers along as he unravels fish tales of giant killers – where sometimes the fact is stranger than the fiction!

In its new season, RIVER MONSTERS takes treacherous and mysterious to new heights with the most dangerous adventures of Wade’s lifetime. His journeys include a mission to Chernobyl’s nuclear wastelands in search of mutant fish in a tick-tock race against time to avoid radiation exposure, a trip to Nicaragua to capture an elusive killer torpedo, and a bloodthirsty quest on American soil in pursuit of a prehistoric underwater vampire. These fantastic voyages kick off on Sunday, April 7, at 9 PM (ET/PT) with the monster-sized season opener – “Face Ripper.”

“I realize there will come a point at which my searching must come to an end – once I’ve found every river monster and all the world’s underwater mysteries are solved,” says Wade. “That time hasn’t come; this season of RIVER MONSTERS continues to drive my quest to reveal the fascinating mysteries of the deep.”

The eye-opening RIVER MONSTERS season premiere, “Face Ripper,” brings viewers along as Wade investigates a horrific death in a Bolivian river. In an area crawling with cocaine smugglers, Jeremy treks through the dangerous jungle to discover the fresh water beast that ripped a man’s face to shreds. Wade is astonished when one of his oldest adversaries reveals some new behavior – but will he already be in too deep to learn a new lesson? It’s a horrific mystery that Wade is intent on solving.

This groundbreaking new season will culminate with a special Memorial Day two-hour season finale on Monday, May 27, at 9 pm ET/PT, which may just uncover the mother of all RIVER MONSTERS. For more than 30 years as a professional angler, Wade has gone head to head with the world’s most legendary RIVER MONSTERS – but there’s one legend he has yet to tackle – that of the Loch Ness Monster. Wade will take viewers along on an epic mission from the depths of Loch Ness to the volcanoes of Iceland to track down the world’s most famous water-dwelling monster.

    Sweet–I remember hearing this at the end of last season and have been waiting. :) Look forward to see what he has to say.

    I seriously doubt he caught Nessie or there’d be a big hulla-balloo…but I’ll still tune in. :)

  2. MR JOSHUA responds:

    I have always wondered when he would go after Nessie or Champ. I absolutely cannot wait as River Monsters is a great show. It will also be some nice news for another cryptid now that Melba/FB has made a fiasco out of bigfoot.

  3. dconstrukt responds:

    champ I’d love to see… i mean those echolocation things… that sounded SO interesting…. seems to be more evidence for champ than nessie it seems…. or even ogopogo…. strangely you RARELY hear anything about either anymore… wonder why?

  4. kbraun responds:

    I think Mr.Wade’s epic mission (Loch Ness Monster) more attract viewers, then a Champ or Ogopogo quest.

    Sad:

    If there are large unidentified animals living in some fresh water lakes, the Loch Ness is the last place I would search. The water is the cold and color of coffee.

    Okanagan Lake or Lake Champlain are much better options.

  5. dconstrukt responds:

    kbraun – interesting… ya… i’d tend to agree with you…

    and maybe the alaskan one… that video looked really interesting… does anyone know what happened with that?

    its just odd though…. if these things all had to breathe air, like a dolphin, whale etc…. wouldn’t there be a LOT more sightings?

    i mean those lakes are FULL of boats and people… and the lakes are limited (albeit big) confined areas (or are they?)

  6. corrick responds:

    During May 2012, Jeremy Wade was at Lake Champlain filming an episode for the show. Don’t believe he caught Champ. Maybe he’ll have better luck at Loch Ness.
    As for those echolocation findings from 2003 on Discovery Channel, they were taken by Fauna Communications Research Institute in Hillsborough, N.C. Elizabeth von Muggenthaler, the President, is not a scientist and no one in mainstream science takes her work seriously. Dennis J. Hall now works there which is all you need to know.

  7. kbraun responds:

    The Alaskan one was in salt water….

    If there are large unidentified animals living in some fresh water lakes..

    In my opinion (other then eyewitnesses) , best evidence …..

    Loch Ness : Dinsdale footage, Holmes video, Robert Rines neck and body photograph

    Champ: Dick Affolter / Pete Bodette video , Sandra Mansi photograph, Elizabeth von Muggenthaler bio-sonar signals

    Ogopogo: Folden Film, Larry Thai Film , John Casorso video

    Take care,

  8. dconstrukt responds:

    dinsdale – interesting… no clue what the heck is swimming there… but too blurry and shot too far away to say one way or the other.. so to me, that doesn’t count.

    holmes – same thing… no clue, but theres nothing there to say ‘this is an unidentified creature”, so again, i cant’ count it.

    Dick Affolter / Pete Bodette video – whatever it is, is SO far away… how can someone say that is a lake monster? cant count this one either.

    mansi photo is nuts…. BUT its only 1 still, some have said it could be a tree come up out of the water… is this possible?

    the bio sonar i saw on tv… thought it was nuts… i mean only whales and dolphin are able to do this… so is champ a type of whale that has evolved into swimming in fresh water?

    how does it breed? there must be more of them to sustain a population

    if it breathes, where does it hang out?

    why aren’t there more sightings of them?

    so many questions.

    couldn’t find the rest.

    rines photo is very very interesting… yet the photo shows VERY weird limbs on this thing

    i take a guy like robert rines, and to me, he is 100% believable…. and legit… he has credibility to me…. he says he saw something and kept coming back to find it.

    you dont do this unless something MAJOR happened. he had to have seen something extraordinary.

  9. kbraun responds:

    “dinsdale – interesting… no clue what the heck is swimming there… but too blurry and shot too far away to say one way or the other.. so to me, that doesn’t count.”

    IMHO the Dinsdale footage is too far away , however the subject seems to submerge for approx 20 -30 seconds. Not a boat.

    “Dick Affolter / Pete Bodette video – whatever it is, is SO far away… how can someone say that is a lake monster? cant count this one either.”

    Not too far away, right nest to the boat in the final sequence.

    “the bio sonar i saw on tv… thought it was nuts… i mean only whales and dolphin are able to do this… so is champ a type of whale that has evolved into swimming in fresh water?”

    I stand corrected. It seems Elizabeth von Muggenthaler bio-sonar signals, “no one in mainstream science takes her work seriously”, are bogus.

    “mansi photo is nuts…. BUT its only 1 still, some have said it could be a tree come up out of the water… is this possible? ”

    One heck of a tree.

    “how does it breed? there must be more of them to sustain a population
    if it breathes, where does it hang out?
    why aren’t there more sightings of them?”

    I don’t know.

    I also think Mr. Rines is credible.

  10. dconstrukt responds:

    didnt see what you saw in the bodette video…

    the biosonar stuff in champlain was bogus??? (dont tell me this lol)

    the mansi photo… hard to really tell without the negative or other photos…. but man… what a photo that is….. (what the hell is it of tho?)
