Sig Hansen and brothers Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand are leaving Discovery's hit reality series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Earlier in the week, it was reported that the network was suing the two brothers for $3 million for failing to complete work for a spin-off show called "Hillstranded."
"We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in 'Deadliest Catch,'" the three crab fishermen said in a statement.
Hansen has been with the show since it debuted in 2005, while the brothers joined in season two. The series is set to begin shooting its seventh season in October. Do you think the show can go on without three of its captains?
