Shark Week’s 30th Anniversary is Coming
Discovery announced that our favorite time of the year, Shark Week, 2018 will kick off Sunday, July 22. As in previous years, the worlds most fun shark programming will run for eight fintastic days. This marks the 30th installment of the annual franchise, which features all sorts of shark-centric specials that aim to educate about the powerful predators of the sea while clearing up misconceptions.
Watching Eight Days of Sharks
Shark Week 2018 is going to be more than worth waiting for — after all, this year is Shark Week’s 30th anniversary, so it’s sure to be an even bigger affair than normal. According to Deadline, the Discovery Channel already has some special things planned with their usual team of scientists and cinematographers, and are planning to debut some new technology (“from genetic profiling to miniaturized camera tags”) in order to “peer more deeply into the shark ecosystem.” Sounds pretty exciting already, right? And more details are sure to follow as we get closer to that landmark 30th season. Will you be watching?
