To recap, the ship’s owners, the Hillstrand brothers — Neal, Johnathan, and Andy — left reality television life behind after Season 13.
“Thank you everyone for all your encouraging posts,” Johnathan wrote on Twitter back in October. “God Bless you all! My wife and I have been busy moving to Pierce County. The Time Bandit is all put back together and running Great. Eddie Sr., Eddie Jr., and Axel are bringing it back to Homer. I’ll keep you all posted.”
But Jonathan Hillstrand did return to the series for the last few episodes of Season 16, and he’s back in action as a co-captain. However, Andy hasn’t appeared by his side and Neal looks to be out of the game as well … or are they?
That’s because if you take a look at their respective IMDb pages, they’re a part of an upcoming Discovery TV movie documentary called Deadliest Catch: Time Bandit Returns.
