Three stars of Discovery’s reality program "Deadliest Catch" have quit the program, including Capts. Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand, who were sued earlier this month by Discovery for allegedly not working on a planned spinoff special, reports The Hollywood Reporter’s THR, Esq. blog.

The Hillstrands, as previously reported, were sued by Discovery for allegedly not fulfilling their promise to create a special called "Hillstranded." 

The brothers were joined by Capt. Sig Hansen in quitting the show, saying they are "unable" to continue work on the show because of the litigation.

"We have been through a lot over the past year and, unfortunately, given the current situation with Discovery, we are unable to continue participating in ‘Deadliest Catch,’" the three men said in the statement. "It has been a fantastic ride, and we wish the best to all of the amazing and supportive ‘Catch’ fans we have met over the years."



  2. Guess I will no longer be watching Discovery. Too bad, I really enjoyed “Dealiest Catch” & “After the Catch”. Never missed either one. Bye Bye Discovery. Know one viewer may not mean much, but you lost this one.

  3. Great blog!! You should start many more. I love all the info provided. I will stay tuned 🙂
