Discovery Channel’s hit reality show, Deadliest Catch, comes back for a 15th season on April 9. But for fans hoping to see the return of controversial captain, Elliott Neese, prepare to be disappointed.
Ever since the crab fisherman left the series in Season 11, viewers — well, we should say some viewers — have been eager to see the father-of-two, who was often portrayed as a villain, on camera again. Scroll down for an update on the antagonistic TV personality.
What happened to Elliott Neese from Deadliest Catch?
In 2015, the captain went AWOL after abruptly handing over the reins of his fishing vessel Saga to first mate Jeff Folk. He later tweeted that he had entered a 60-day rehab program for drug addiction. Unfortunately, his problems didn’t end there.
