Empowering Communities, Celebrating Minnesota Locally

Shark Week 2024 Schedule

It’s summertime, and that means one of TV’s must-see annual programming events is here as Discovery Channel makes way for Shark Week 2024.

There will be hours of new programming all about thrilling encounters with apex predators, epic deep-sea expeditions, and more extraordinary stories for the event. Below, we’re breaking down all the need-to-know details about the upcoming slate.

Who is hosting Shark Week 2024?

John Cena, best known for his wrestling and headlining Max’s hit original anti-hero series, Peacemaker, will host this year’s big Shark Week event. Last year, Shark Week celebrated its 35th anniversary and was hosted by Aquaman star Jason Momoa, who is now passing the reins to Cena.

“I usually do Shark Week from my couch – with lots of snacks, but this year I’m beyond excited to host the week dedicated to the endlessly fascinating, action heroes of the Ocean,” said Cena in a statement. “It’s a wild week of shocking new footage, new discoveries, and lots and lots of teeth.”

When is Shark Week 2024 airing?

Shark Week 2024 kicks off on Sunday, July 7, at 8/7c and begins a week-long lineup of original specials, episodes, and more on Discovery Channel. The celebration starts a little earlier than last year’s week of programming which kicked off weeks later on July 23, 2023.

In addition to Discovery Channel, Warner Bros. Discovery’s linear and streaming portfolio—including Food Network, HGTV, ID, TBS, TNT, TCM, TLC, CNN and Max—will air Shark Week-inspired content or cross-promote the event. Shark Week will also be available to stream on Max.
