This year, Sharkageddon examines why tourist hot spots attract sharks.  Hawaii is often thought of as an idyllic vacation destination, but recent spikes in shark attacks are turning these tourist-laden shores into a shark hot spot. Hawaiian native and surf legend Kala Alexander knows these waters better than anyone, and he hopes to uncover the reason behind this sudden shark invasion in Sharkageddon.


Lair of the Mega Shark follows famed shark experts Jeff Kurr and Andy Casagrande head to New Zealand on a life-or-death mission to investigate the sightings of a 20 foot great white that resembles the legend of a giant great white shark Maoris call the "lord of the sharks." Jeff and Andy will risk everything to track down this Mega Shark believed to be lurking in the shadows of the New Zealand coast line.


Zombie Sharks explores tonic immobility, a catatonic zombie-like state that can be achieved in sharks. This shark phenomenon has been studied by scientists for years, but a recent spike in orca whale attacks on great white sharks suggests that orcas have now learned how to immobilize and prey on great whites. Professional diver Eli Martinez looks to prove this theory by being the first person to induce underwater tonic immobility in a massive great white shark.


In Alien Sharks: Return to the Abyss, shark researcher Paul Clerkin heads to the Indian Ocean to investigate the ocean's darkest depths in search of shark species that scientists never even knew existed and get a glimpse of the last known group of bioluminescent sharks in the world.


Monster Hammerhead explores a legendary hammerhead shark that has been patrolling Florida's shores for the past 60 years.  Now, a team of scientists and anglers look to explore the mystery and find out if the legend could be real.


Dr. Michael Domeier has spent years scouring the Pacific Ocean hoping to solve one of the greatest mysteries of shark science: the location of great white pupping grounds.  In 2013, he set the process in motion by successfully tagging a pregnant female shark that he called Gil Rakers. Now he's returning to the sea in Spawn of Jaws: The Birth to follow her journey and be the first to capture the birth of a baby great white shark.


Great White Matrix features legendary shark attack survivor Paul de Gelder and cameraman Andy Casagrande on an expedition into the deadly shark infested waters of Australia. Their mission is to investigate a series of bizarre shark attacks in an area swarming with great white sharks. Paul and Andy explore what's bringing these great whites so close to shore and what's responsible for the surge in attacks in this area.


Air Jaws programming has pushed and expanded our understanding of great white sharks and has become one of the iconic SHARK WEEK programs. In Air Jaws: Fin of Fury Natural History producer Jeff Kurr and his team return using incredible new cameras and high tech underwater gadgetry to track down the missing "mega-shark" named Colossus.


In Jaws Strikes Back, marine biologist Greg Skomal and the sharkcam team travel to the remote Pacific island of Guadalupe, home to some of the largest great white sharks on earth, to film an epic clash of the titans. Their mission: to film Jaws hunt two-ton mega seals.       

                                       
I Escaped Jaws 2 is a shark special featuring attack stories told from the perspective of the survivor. Using first person interviews and actual footage of the attacks, we take a look at why the attacks occurred and how the victims narrowly escaped with their lives.  


Shark of Darkness: Wrath of Submarine (WT) explores the legend of "Submarine," an enormous great white shark off the coast of South Africa. This 30-foot shark is said to be the largest great white shark of all time. Locals believe that this shark is responsible for countless fatal attacks, but its existence has never been proven. This documentary explores the evidence and asks the question: can Submarine exist?


In April 2013, a fishing vessel off the coast of South Africa was attacked, killing all on board. A TV crew documented Marine Biologist Collin Drake as he worked to determine the predator responsible. Megalodon: New Evidence presents SHARK WEEK viewers with shocking new evidence and interview footage.
