Discovery’s pop culture phenomenon, Shark Week, is back. This year fans can expect a whole week of Shark programming, including unmissable documentaries filmed in New Zealand. And don't miss Jason Momoa popping up now and again across the week to talk about all things shark!

Jason Momoa, fan-favourite actor, superhero and conservationist, who is dedicated to protecting and preserving the world’s oceans, will host the 35th year of Shark Week, Discovery Channel’s week-long celebration and investigation of shark habits and behaviours.
Momoa, who is hosting off the coast of New Zealand, will guide fans through nearly 20 new hours of television, featuring the apex predators. This year, Shark Week's programming will include: Belly of the Beast: Feeding Frenzy, a special that will provide a first time, close-up look at a great white shark feast - captured by researchers with cameras inside a whale carcass decoy - and Cocaine Sharks, a documentary that reveals what happens to sharks that possibly feed on cocaine and other illegal drugs dumped in South Florida waters.
Shark Week  will also spotlight innovative technology used to track and study unique shark species and their enemies. Showcasing the work of the world’s most respected marine biologists and science institutions, Shark Week  will also delve into mating and migration patterns - showing rare footage - as researchers follow the sharks to remote locations in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
The 2023 edition of Shark Week features even more unmissable documentaries filmed in Australia and New Zealand  - and includes Aussie and Kiwi shark experts and conservationists including shark attack survivor Paul de Gelder, scientist Dr. Riley Elliott and marine videographer, Madison “Shark Girl” Stewart.
