Gold Rush fans are extremely excited in August 2023 as a brand new trailer for the show drops on Discovery. Many are hailing the short clip “awesome” as mining legends Parker Schnabel and Tony Beets wear black suits with golden details. A return of Rick Ness is also teased in the trailer.

While lots of Discovery Channel viewers have been occupied with Gold Rush spin-off shows, including Gold Rush White Water and Hoffman Family Gold, nothing beats an original season of Gold Rush for megafans. Now, season 14 is officially on the horizon and people “can’t wait,” for episode 1 to air.

Rick Ness teases Gold Rush return

The all-new Gold Rush season 14 trailer sees Parker and Tony walk across mining land looking unrecognizable in formal suits.

The two Discovery stars pose next to mining equipment and are seen digging in the dirt for gold as the words: “Fortune favors the dirty” appear on-screen.

Is Rick Ness mining again?

Yes, Rick Ness is back on Gold Rush as a miner.

The Discovery star took to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter on August 30 to share the show’s trailer.
