The upcoming second season of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks (formerly Wicked Tuna: North vs. South) will feature some returning favorites as well as some new additions to the cast, including the Reels of Fortune, captained by Outer Banks local Charlie Griffin, who is appearing on the show for the first time.

The full cast of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks includes fan favorite and fourth-season Wicked Tuna champion Captain Dave Marciano and first mate Jay Muenzner of the Hard Merchandise; Captain Tyler McLaughlin and Co-Captain Paul Hebert of the Pinwheel; and Captain T.J. Ott of the Hot Tuna, representing Gloucester against the Outer Banks’ own Captain Greg Mayer, last season’s champion and captain of the Fishin’ Frenzy; Captain Britton Shackelford of the Doghouse; local legend Charlie “Griff” Griffin of the Reels of Fortune, and Captain Tami Gray of the Reel Action, who helms the series’ first all-female boat.
NatGeo has released two new promo videos for the show, which introduce viewers to Griffin and his crew.
