Get your wetsuits and scuba gear ready! Or, just clear your calendars because the best week of the year is right around the corner and we finally have a premiere date announcement!

We’re talking, of course, about Discovery’s highly-anticipated annual Shark Week event which, this year, will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary.  Each year, the network devotes an entire week to all different kinds of programs featuring our favorite deep seas creatures – SHARKS! The weeklong event focuses educating the public about these amazing animals while also throwing in some awesomely fun programs like last year’s Phelps Vs. Shark show.

This year will be no different as Discovery has set Sunday, July 22nd as its official kick-off date of Shark Week 2018. The network enlisted the help of Shaquille O’Neal (whose nickname sounds strikingly similar to the word shark) to help announce the event date.  Who’s going to tell him that it’s not actually Shaq Week that we’re excited about?

Check out the first promo for Discovery’s upcoming Shark Week (not Shaq Week) below.  Are you excited?
