One of the best parts of summer, especially for fans of the ocean and all things that inhabit it, is Discovery’s Shark Week. The network hosts nightly specials that are catered to those who are both captivated and terrified by the sea creatures. From Devil Sharks to Sharks and the City and the highly anticipated Phelps vs Shark – Great Gold vs Great White, the lineup this year looks incredible.
The press release for Shark Week gives short explanations of each of the 18 segments as well as the announcements of more ways than ever to interact with Shark Week on other digital platforms.
The press release describes that in more detail as follows.
‘In addition to all the fascinating programming SHARK WEEK has to offer, Discovery will leave no shark fan behind, bringing the SHARK WEEK experience to viewers in new and innovative ways through digital and social media platforms, partnerships with nonprofit groups, affiliates, education programs, and more.

Leading up to and during SHARK WEEK, Discovery Channel will cover the latest shark news, scientific findings, and everything you ever wanted to know about sharks. Fans who follow SHARK WEEK on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter will receive daily video updates all summer long featuring incredible shark facts and the planet’s most jaw-dropping shark footage.’
This year is Shark Week’s 29th anniversary and they’ve certainly outdone themselves. We’re most excited about the Michael Phelps’ specials as well as Great White Shark Serial Killer Lives – those three programs will definitely have our full attention. However, when does Shark Week not have our full attention?
After the scheduled programming of the evening, Eli Roth will be hosting Shark After Dark – the preview and wrap-up show that happens at the end of each evening during Shark Week. There, you’ll find more information, recaps of the best segments, and looks into what to expect next.
If you’ve not yet seen the preview for the whole week, you can catch it below. Major props to Seal for being a team player.
