Break out in hysterics of delight! To celebrate its 34th anniversary, Shark Week is bringing back more than 20 hours of original content for the first time. There will be “larger breaches and even bigger results from global teams of devoted scientists in the field,” according to Discovery.
New locales in the Bahamas and Papua New Guinea will be featured during Shark Week this year, as well as cutting-edge shark technology. In a statement, Discovery said, “Fans can expect 25 adrenaline-inducing original episodes that provide never-seen video of walking sharks, awe-inspiring breaches, and more terrifying predations.” There will be plenty of other celebrities this year, as there have been in prior years. Stars Noah Schnapp and Tracy Morgan will appear at Shark Week 2022. Here’s the lowdown on one of our favorite weeks of the summer, Shark Week 2022, before you dive in:

We’ve teamed up with @Discovery to bring you a VERY SPECIAL (and kick-ass) SHARK WEEK from @SevenBucksProd. The gorgeous predator AUMAKUA (gods) are profoundly adored and respected in our Polynesian culture, where I filmed entirely.
