Is the curse of Oak Island coming back this year with a new season 9?
The current season started airing in November 2020 with episodes still released in early April 2021. However, we have not yet received an official update from the History channel to find out if the show is renewed for a new season or cancelled.
Season 9 is at risk
The lack of news now that the season is complete doesn’t necessarily mean the show is canceled, but puts the TV show at risk. Since the previous season completed, we would expect to have received official news already. However, 2020 and 2021 have been rocky years to say the least. We expect that the pandemic is throwing a spanner in the works and creating delays in the decision to renew.
Because the series has been a hit for History Channel with more than 3 million viewers per episode, we still expect it to be renewed for a new season.
Renewal/cancellation Status: Likely Renewed for Season 9

About this show:
The Curse of Oak Island has not been officially cancelled by the History channel: the Curse of Oak Island season 8 premiered on November 10th, 2020 (Season 7 premiered November 5, 2019). There is no official news on season 9 but we expect it to be approved and released around end of 2021. The series is proven to be very popular for the History channel with over 3 million viewers in 2021.
Rick and Marty Lagina work to fulfill a life-long dream as they embark on the most exciting chapter ever of the now 220-year-old Oak Island mystery. After making major discoveries in borehole 10-X and the infamous Money Pit last year, the brothers and their partners will use today’s most advanced technology, as well as heavy digging and drilling equipment to go deep inside the island. They welcome new researchers and special guests, forge new alliances and explore new, intriguing theories. Nothing will stop them from finding out what could be buried on Oak Island, who concealed it there and where “X” marks the spot.
This year also holds several extraordinary milestones for the Oak Island team. It’s been 50 years since an article about the Money Pit appeared in Reader’s Digest, which not only sparked the imaginations of the young Lagina brothers, but also compelled Dan Blankenship to devote his life to solving this great mystery. It is also the 50th anniversary of the Restall tragedy, which claimed four of the six lives lost in search of the Oak Island treasure.
Will Rick, Marty and their partners unearth a vast, hidden treasure? Or like the many who have come before them, will they only find more obstacles–or worse—proof that a deadly curse really does protect Oak Island’s secrets?
