Ready for another jaw-some night of Shark Week? Everyone’s favorite week-long, Discovery Channel event will return for its third night of seawater fun on Tuesday. And according to the July 7th schedule below, it looks like fans of the series can expect even more toothy-drama in the upcoming installment.
“Bride of Jaws”
9-10 p.m. EDT
Shark expert Andy Casagrande and his team, which consists of two shark attack survivors (Paul de Gelder and Elyse Frankcom), will return to Australia to try to hunt down and re-tag the 18-foot Great White they nicknamed Joan of Shark.
In the suspenseful episode, the Shark Week veteran will dangle himself over Australia’s shark infested waters, eager to tag a toothy beast that could hopefully lead them to Joan.
“I’ve deployed a number of shark fin cams on Great White sharks around the world — New Zealand, South Africa, Mexico. I had never done one in Australia,” Casangrande told Yahoo! TV. “And the boat we were working on had a very big swim step but not much support or a railing or something to hold on to. It was just this open back deck. So the producer was actually telling me, “Hey man, I’m a little worried you might fall in. What if we hook you up to this harness system?”
Casagrande admitted he was a bit skeptical at first to dangle over the water like a “human bait line.” But the producer told him it was a way to have the cameraman be safe.
“I’m like, ‘I think you just want to dangle me over sharks to make this a little crazier,’" he said. But eventually Casagrande agreed to harness himself above the water like a bucket of chum.
“Tiburones: Sharks of Cuba”
10-11 p.m. EDT
Inspired by the 21-foot Great White shark dubbed “El Monstruo,” who was caught off the coast of Cuba 70 years ago, filmmaker Ian Shive and his team of shark researchers will head to Havana in this Shark Week program to search for monstrous Great Whites of their own.
This Cuba shark expedition will bring together both American and Cuban scientists, the synopsis for “Tiburones: Sharks of Cuba” reveals, adding that the team will attempt to track down a Great White shark population in a very unexplored part of the world that’s been “untouched by made for decades.”
During their expedition, Shive and his team will electronically tag a rare species of shark for the first time ever.
“Shark After Dark”
11-11:30 p.m. EDT
Everyone’s favorite late night, shark-loving program will return on Tuesday, July 7, to discuss even more fishy topics.
