According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune” will premiere on Friday, June 30 at 8 p.m. Eastern, on both Discovery and Discovery+.
The premiere comes during a busy 2021 for the franchise. The spin-off series “Gold Rush: Freddy Dodge’s Mine Rescue” premiered on January 4 to help kick off the launch of Discovery’s subscription-based platform, Discovery+. The flagship program, “Gold Rush,” aired its Season 11 finale on March 19. The same day as that finale, “Gold Rush: Dave Turin’s Lost Mine” premiered. Its first season just ended on June 25 (via Discovery). “Gold Rush: Whitewater” also concluded its fourth season on March 12.
Discovery hasn’t specified how many episodes the first season of “Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune” will have, but if it follows the model established by other “Gold Rush” spinoffs, it should have about 16 episodes. (“Gold Rush” seasons usually have 20-22 episodes, not including specials.) So, look for “Gold Rush: Winter’s Fortune” to conclude in November.
