Gold Rush has now created a spin-off series opportunity. Gold Rush: White Water will feature Dakota Fred and his son Dustin.
Discovery Channel revealed more about the new series in a press release. Check that out below.
“Gold miners Dakota Fred and his son Dustin are back – returning to McKinley Creek Alaska, determined to make a fortune no matter the risk. But to find the big gold payout, they’ll put their lives on the line by diving deep beneath the raging waters of one of Alaska’s wildest creeks. From the producers of GOLD RUSH, Discovery’s #1-rated show, comes an all-new series GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER premiering Friday, January 19 at 10 PM ET/PT on Discovery.
Dakota Fred and his son Dustin are down on their luck. But the ‘Dakota Boys’ aren’t quitters. They have one last roll of the dice.
In this all-new series, the Dakota Boys put together a team of intrepid divers, mountaineers and bush mechanics to go where no miner has ever managed to explore – the depths of freezing plunge pools in white water rapids that have only recently become accessible. Nothing will stop these guys – they’ll dive in raging torrents with a six-inch suction dredge where one wrong move could have deadly consequences.
This is gold mining at its most extreme. Accessing the creek each day takes nerves of steel – traversing a death defying 400-foot canyon on a precarious zip-wire. But that is not the only danger. The guys will face wild animals, extreme temperatures and hypothermia from the freezing water.
But the Dakota boys will need to make a serious return on fellow gold miner Todd Hoffman’s investment – and soon. The pressure is on. But can the Dakota Boys tame the wilderness, strike gold and make it out unscathed?
Viewers will also be able to catch the current season, along with past seasons of GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER, on the Discovery GO app – free with their paid TV subscription.
GOLD RUSH: WHITE WATER is produced for Discovery Channel by Raw Television, where Dimitri Doganis, James Bates and are executive producers and Tim Dalby and Theo Williams are series producers. For Discovery Channel, Matthew Vafiadis is executive producer and Greg Wolf is coordinating producer.”
Will you check out Gold Rush: White Water? Tell us what you think.
I watched every episode so far of Gold Rush, but my God, I couldn’t watch Dustin for more than one and a half episodes. . . That guy is repulsive in every way.
Of course I will watch..Dustin is gentle on the eyes:)
When is the new season of Whitewater gold rush going to be?
Dakota Fred, and his stupid son Have no business on any gold rush series. Fred is an evil person with no skills. He is abusive to any one working near him.
No one should watch this garbage.
love the regular gold rush program
If Dustin is allowed to play to the camera, the show will be ruined.
Dustin needs a attitude adjustment. If he continues I won’t be watching anymore and I’m a big Gold Rush fan.
I thought I would really like this show. Have always watched Gold Rush and was wondering what had happened to Fred and Dustin. I think Dustin is disrespectful to Fred and to anyone else that seems to have an opinion of their own. He bullies everyone and you can see he enjoys doing it.
I think the son acts like a disrespectful punk to his father and to the other guys there with them. He is so full of himself. All ego and not much of anything else.
I thought I was really going to like this show because I love Gold Country so much but what Dustin did to that new guy was just too much for me we have enough bully bully bully bully in this world without having to watch it on TV
This is what I like about new shows like this – – someone gets to be the a-hole. In this show Dustin fits the bill totally perfect. This idiot doesn’t have the sense of a nat. No wonder he’s the a-hole in this new series. If Dustin would realize what little he knows in life, and learn to listen to suggestions from others – and not try to act like the “know it all”, maybe he would learn to grow up. If he were my son I would have drown him…
Without a doubt I’m gonna tell you that from the moment I first started watching Gold Rush years ago I have been totally captivated..!! Now with Dakota Fred and Dustin back on the scene with this incredible decision to challenge the White Water I can’t wait to see it all begin on January 19th..As with all the miners I have come to know through this terrific show it stirs up feelings of what good gutsy men are all about and to have the balls to go for it..Now the only thing I’d like to finally see is for Parker to… Read more »
Probably won’t watch, don’t care for Fred. I would rather see a spin-off featuring Dave who left Hoffman and a crew he would put together.
I love Dakota Fred and his son Dustin! We are SO glad to see him back on TV. They are good people.
