All of the drama we followed in the Southern Ocean earlier this year is finally coming to your living room.
“Whale Wars” Season Four premieres tonight on Animal Planet – and likely carries some lofty expectations from AP execs. Each season of the series – now almost a household name – has done better than the previous. Season Three in particular featured moments that were particularly engaging (destruction of the Ady Gil, Pete Bethune’s daring nighttime boarding of a whaling vessel) with audiences. Will it prove a hard act to follow?
Probably not. The network appears to have already approved a Season Five (or some variety thereof), so regardless of this season’s numbers, they’re apparently eager to continue carrying the series forward.
One thing’s for sure: When it comes to activism, Sea Shepherd has the best publicity any conservation org could ask for. Watch it in action tonight at 9PM E/T.
