For five exciting seasons, globally renowned angling guru and biologist Jeremy Wade has been taking fans, aquarium hobbyists and angling enthusiasts on spine-chilling monster fishing adventures like no other.

Come this July, Jeremy Wade takes viewers on an all-new mystery-filled freshwater monster hunting expedition in RIVER MONSTERS 6. The new season will premiere on Tuesday, July 8 at 9:00 p.m. (2100 hrs) SIN/HK on Discovery Channel and encores every Friday at 11:00 p.m. (2300 hrs), Saturday at 8:00 p.m. (2000 hrs) and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. (1100 hrs).

The six-part series is one of his most challenging, with Jeremy having to travel over the course of a year to extremely remote locations across the Amazon to get to the bottom of inexplicable mysteries surrounding some of the deadliest human attacks by man-eating freshwater beasts on the planet.

This season’s mysteries include:

  • Man-Eating Monster: All over the Amazon are stories of a monster fish that grows so large, it is believed to have swallowed men whole. Locals call it the lau-lau, but after 20 years of searching, from Peru to Brazil and Colombia, the evidence Jeremy needs – a single colossal specimen, stills eludes him. Now, he has discovered a secret, untouched location deep in Guyana’s remote rainforests where he suspects they may be thriving. Embedding himself in the wild jungle, this time it is different: he is not coming back until he catches it.
  • Brazil – Amazon Apocalypse: In 1981, more than 200 passengers perished without a trace when the Sobral Santos – supposedly the safest river boat – sunk in the middle of the night in the deepest part of the Amazon, many rumoured to have been eaten alive in the water. If this was in fact the work of a river monster, this catastrophe would have a greater death toll than all of Jeremy’s other investigations – combined. Jeremy goes to extreme lengths to crack the mystery, travelling hundreds of miles across the Amazon, Rio Negro and Padauiri rivers to unearth the beast behind this massive attack.
  • Bone Crusher: When a corpse with highly unusual injuries is found, Jeremy instinctively knows that he is on the trail of possibly a new monster. He soon learns the dead body is only the tip of the iceberg – there has also been a spate of unexplained disappearances and people have seen a huge unknown creature patrolling the water. Could all these three factors be connected? To solve this mystery, Jeremy confronts one of his biggest fears and encounters a river monster that he has never dealt with before.
  • Jungle Terminator: Three mysterious deaths in Peru, Colombia and Brazil leave Jeremy with no choice but to cross dangerous borders and pass through territories of warring tribes to live with the Matis – a mysterious, secretive tribe, deep in the Brazilian Amazon. It seems they have a unique and death-defying way of catching these culprits. Can they get Jeremy closer to the terrifying beast he has come this far to find?
  • River Of Blood: A brutal underwater mutilation of a young man leads Jeremy to a face-to-face confrontation with one of South America’s greatest freshwater fighting fish that slashes and stalks its prey while living in one of Argentina’s most dangerous waterways.
  • Body Snatcher: In the remote rivers of Guyana, Jeremy is on the hunt for a new candidate for largest freshwater ‘fish’ in the world – a predatory freshwater mermaid. Could there be some truth behind the legendary Water Mama, which is said to be responsible for chilling reports of people vanishing, with their bodies never to have been found? Locals believe this long-haired, white-skinned creature lures people from the surface and drags them down into the depths.
