Deadliest Catch Agree To Return After Dispute With Discovery

Three captains from 'Deadliest Catch' have agreed to return after settling their dispute with Discovery.

Sig Hansen and bothers Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand had threatened to leave the popular reality series after the cable network sued them last month, claiming breach of contract after they failed to finish production on their planned spin-off, Hillstranded.

"We're happy we worked everything out with Discovery," they say in a statement.

"A deal's a deal. We're heading up to Dutch Harbor to start filming the new season of Deadliest Catch and hopefully it will be the best one yet."

The brothers confirm they were in the wrong on the issue as they admit that they plan to complete the unfinished portion of their spin-off.

"Everyone worked really hard on putting together Hillstranded and we're looking forward to wrapping that up," the Hillstrand brothers say in a statement. "It's something new that we hope people will enjoy."

"Our Dad made a tremendous connection with so many fans and it is such a fitting tribute to his life that we, his sons, can remain fishing on the boat that he skippered for so many years."
