‘Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks’ Season 6 Premiere First Look Revealed
The locally filmed National Geographic Channel (NatGeo) reality competition series Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks returns for its sixth season this weekend, and we have three previews of this Sunday’s episode, teasing an all new Southern fleet.
The Season 6 premiere episode is entitled “New Blood”, as four new Southern boats will face challengers from the Gloucester-based regular Wicked Tuna cast, including returning captains Dave Marciano of the Falcon, Tyler McLaughlin of the Pinwheel, T.J. Ott of the Hot Tuna.
Among the Southern boats this year is the Kahuna, with a local crew that includes Reed Meredith, who previously appeared on the first season of Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks back in 2014 on the Wahoo.
Filmed on the Outer Banks, North Carolina, the breakout TV show spin off of the original Wicked Tuna that follows the exciting work of hardcore tuna fishermen on the Outer Banks, production of the new season began in January, once again shot mostly aboard the boats of the local and visiting captains from Gloucester until the region’s bluefin quota is met.
Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks airs on Sunday at 9pm on NatGeo, but starts early at 9pm.
