Deadliest Catch fans want to know where Josh and Casey are

Discovery show Deadliest Catch returned to screens on April 18, 2023.

As fans are re-acquainted with Sig Hansen and more familiar faces, they also notice that some cast members are missing from the new series.

There are also some newcomers to the show in 2023 including Linda Greenlaw.

Many fans of Deadliest Catch took to Twitter to ask of Josh and Casey’s whereabouts.

Casey and Josh appeared on past seasons of the show on the F/V Cornelia Marie.

Josh Harris was arrested

Former Discovery star and Deadliest Catch cast member Josh Harris was fired from the show in 2022.

Harris was fired from Deadliest Catch after he was sentenced for sexual assault involving a four-year-old girl in 1998.

He was accused of a sexual assault that took place in July 1998, when he would have been around 15 or 16 years old.

A 2022 report from Radar states Discovery released a statement regarding the allegations and said: “We’ve been made aware of this issue. Josh will not appear in future episodes of this series.”

Harris served nine months in prison. As part of his sentencing, he reportedly took part in a psychosexual exam.

Casey’s new adventure

After season 18, Casey McManus also didn’t return to Deadliest Catch.

Per the former Cornelia Marie captain’s LinkedIn profile, he has a new job nowadays and is based in Alaska.

The former Discovery star writes on his page that he was captain of the Cornelia Marie from 2013 to 2023.

Casey can be found on Instagram with almost 90k followers at @capt_casey. He has a further 30k followers on Twitter.
