Season 10 of “The Deadliest Catch” opens with concerns about the short crabbing season. The crew is looking at longer hours and there is need to catch as much crab as possible, but the added pressure has everyone wondering if the crew can endure. According to Arizona Daily Star on Friday, there is no time to lose as the crabbing season has already lost some days after the government shutdown impacts the season.

Joining the crews of the Northwestern, Seabrooke, Time Bandit, Wizard, Kodiak and Ramblin' Rose, the viewers get to see the tough job firsthand. The cast returns to the icy waters of the Bering Sea in the brand new season of “Deadliest Catch.”

Continuing their hunt for highly prized crab, the extreme fishermen are focused on their journey. They endure boat killing storms, the bad attitudes of crew and ridiculous working conditions. And in the end they usually bring home a valuable load of fresh crab.

This season the fans will see how the government shutdown shortens the season. The action kicks off a chain reaction that forces the fleet to fish harder and faster to make the market deadline. Plus, Captain Bill Wichrowski struggles to keep crew in check. Meanwhile Jonathan Hillstrand makes an uncomfortable alliance with Sig Hansen. The goal is to beat the arctic weather and reap the rewards of a good catch. However failure and doom is only a wave away as they try to keep their boats afloat and crew on task.

Getting the fans excited about the new season has people looking to hear from the captains. Zap2It is reporting that Captain Johnathan Hillstrand, who co-skippers the Time Bandit with brother Andy, and Bill Wichrowski are holding a Google chat only hours before the new season starts on Discovery.

Season 10 of “The Deadliest Catch” debuts on Tuesday night at 9 p.m. on Discovery.
