The hit National Geographic series “Wicked Tuna” has been renewed for a ninth season, and the finale of season eight airs this Sunday, June 16, at 9 p.m. in an extended 90-minute episode “The Final Tail.”
In the finale of season eight, viewers will see the final week of fishing for “monstah” bluefin tuna. Capt. Tyler McLaughlin of the Pinwheel, homeported in Rye, New Hampshire, is in the lead. He seeks a victory after dedicating his season to his best friend and former first mate, Nick “Duffy” Fudge, who died unexpectedly last year. His new first mate is his sister Marissa McLaughlin.
