Freshwater detective, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade returns for the eighth series of the marine wildlife documentary with brand new episodes to ITV.
As ever, Jeremy is on the hunt for some of the biggest, vicious and most beastly creatures ever to roam the depths. On a mission to uncover the dark secrets of Earth’s rivers, he travels the globe and risks life and limb to investigate all manner of bizarre species.
In the fifth episode of the new series, entitled Razorhead, terrifying reports have surfaced from one of the east coast’s most popular vacation destinations, the sunny Florida Keys.
Something is terrorising this coastal paradise, attacking both visitors and locals alike, striking its victims so violently it is slicing open flesh, and even smashing bones. But perhaps the most remarkable thing is that these assaults are happening both above and below the water. Jeremy heads to the Keys, determined to discover the identity of the assailant and uncover what is triggering these attacks. He knows it is not going to be easy and it is not long before the brave marine biologist is out of his depth.
River Monsters Season 8 Episode 5 airs on Friday 26 May 2017 at 8.00pm on ITV.
