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 No 1 series returns to US TV in November.

Across all platforms, the last season averaged 5.4 million viewers per episode and is the network's No 1 series in key demographics. The Curse of Oak Island also is a top five non-fiction series this year on cable in the US 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 the remote Canadian island, the Laginas 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 160ft-deep hole first discovered by three teenage boys in the late 1700s – which is believed to be hiding a cache of valuable items. This season, while specialised drilling rigs dig deeper than ever before, new artefacts, including a pirate’s chest and a set of keys for three other chests, surface that deepen the mystery.
