Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water, Discovery Channel's longest running and most anticipated TV event is officially returning for the 31st consecutive year. This years event will feature all-new groundbreaking shark stories including the latest shark research technology and comedian Rob Riggle returns for an all-new show as he takes some of his famous friends on a "Shark Trip" together.

The annual week dedicated to shark-based programming first began in 1988. Last year, Shark Week made a big ratings splash for its 30th anniversary, reaching 34.9 million Total Viewers across Total Day.
