Check out all the programs scheduled to air during the 2015 season of Shark Week below:

“Shark Planet” – This program will capture “all-new footage” of sharks’ behavior, from how they hunt, to their development and even their socialization.

“Alien Sharks: Close Encounter” – This fan favorite series will be celebrating its third installment during the 2015 Shark Week. This year, shark researchers/scientists “head back into the deepest and darkest unexplored oceans” as they attempt to get close to some of the most “incredible and unusual sharks on the planet, rarely seen on film.”

“Shark Trek” – This installment features Dr. Greg Skomal, Massachusetts’ senior marine fisheries marine biologist, as he tags Great Whites off the coast of Cape Cod. Dr. Skomal will attempt to figure out the swimming patterns of the sharks once they leave the coast of Massachusetts.

“Monster Mako” – Scientists will outfit a Mako shark with a camera, hoping to unveil the mysteries of the fastest species of shark.

“Island of the Mega Shark” – Shark experts Jeff Kurr, Andy Casagrande and Dickie Chivell will travel to the volcanic Pacific island of Guadalupe, which is home to “some of the largest Great White sharks on earth.”

“Return of the Great White Serial Killer” – Shark expert Ralph Collier and Brandon McMillian will try to uncover the reasons behind the shark attacks in Surf Beach, California, which took place in the same month both in 2010 and 2012. “Is the same shark responsible for the previous attacks, will there be more attacks, and why?” the summary for the episode questions.

“Sharks of the Shadowland” – New Zealand divers will tag a Sevengill shark for the very first time in this Shark Week program. “The Sevengill shark remains somewhat of a mystery and a team of shark experts are on a mission to find out how they hunt and more importantly how to better understand their behaviors and prevent shark attacks,” the synopsis teases.

“Shark Island” – This program will explore the recent bull shark attacks as experts try to determine what is causing them and how to prevent them.

“Bride of Jaws” – Shark week will search for the “largest female Great White” that’s ever been tagged.

“Super Predator” – This program will take a look at a “super predator,” located in a sea trench in Australia, that is large enough to take on a Great White shark.

“Ninja Sharks” – This episode of Shark Week will follow the story of six sharks all with “unique adaptations,” due to millions of years of evolution, making them the “most lethal hunters in the sea.”

“Shark Clans” – Rodney Fox and his team will swim with the sharks as they tag Great Whites off the coast of Australia.

“Sharksanity 2” – Have a weak stomach? Then this episode isn’t for you. “Sharksanity 2” will take a look at the most gruesome shark bites, strikes and close calls from all of Shark Week.

“Shark After Dark” – Everyone’s favorite after-Shark Week program will return for its third consecutive year with a new host, award-winning director Eli Roth. For five nights, Roth will talk all things fishy with celebrity guests, fans and experts.
