If you can’t get enough of soaking wet manly men fishing in freezing, dangerous waters, Discovery Channel is spinning off its huge Emmy Awarding-winning reality hit (3.6 million viewers this season), Deadliest Catch.

Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove (a working title) will follow generations of Dungeness crab fishermen and their families around the fishing town of Newport, Oregon. Like its mother ship, we can expect huge storms, hard times and serious competition among the fishing vessels.

The series is expected to premiere next fall.
