Discovery’s original Canadian series Mighty Ships returns for a dramatic ninth season, airing Sundays at 7 pm beginning May 1st.
Produced by Discovery’s in-house production unit, Exploration Production Inc. (EPI), and seen in more than 150 countries around the world, the long-running Canadian series sets sail on a new high-stakes voyage, taking viewers on the journey and below the surface to explore places and technologies that are usually off-limits to land lovers.
From the largest hospital ship on the planet to a longline fishing vessel to an expedition cruise ship, the six-episode season gives unprecedented see-all, hear-all access to everything above and below deck, following the captains, engineers, and able seamen into the heart of the most sophisticated ships ever built.
Discovery also recently announced that Mighty Ships‘ sister series, Mighty Cruise Ships, has embarked on the production of its second season, taking viewers to exotic ports in the Mediterranean, old world cities like Rome, Athens, Istanbul, and Barcelona; cruising the rugged coastlines of Norway and Scotland; and visiting the Caribbean. Featuring the largest cruise ships at sea, Mighty Cruise Ships will debut in Spring 2017.
