Plot Synopsis

SHARK WEEK 2017 will premiere on Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 7pm ET/PT. As television's longest running summer event, from exotic, unexplored locations to incredible breaches and shark sonograms, SHARK WEEK has given viewers extensive insight into the mysterious world of sharks -- taking them where cameras have never been before. Along the way, SHARK WEEK has built a community of scientists -- including Craig O'Connoll, Neil Hammerschlag, and Tristan Gutteridge -- who have come on board to share science-based shark stories and exciting shark research from the field. Discovery will employ new technology, from genetic profiling to miniaturized camera tags, to peer more deeply into the shark ecosystem. The shows of the 30th anniversary will combine the best of science and technology to capture the fascinating and misunderstood behavior of sharks. Whether looking for the largest great white sharks deep in the ocean, or exploring for strange new shark species, SHARK WEEK 2017 will deep dive into the secret lives of sharks, and find better ways to share the oceans we co-inhabit.
On Sunday, July 9, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, Discovery Channel premiered "Sharktacular 2017," a one-hour special. This program is a must-see survival guide to SHARK WEEK, featuring exclusive sneak peeks, viral videos, and the greatest sharks in SHARK WEEK history
