Renewed Or Cancelled?
Pirate Gold Of Adak Island is an 8 episode reality series, depicting a bunch of treasure hunters attempting to track down long lost treasure on an island. It’s classic adventuring and a nod back to the days of Curse of Oak Island.
If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Well, read ahead and we’ll let you know what we know so far about a renewal.
What is Pirate Gold Of Adak Island about?
Adak Island centers on an old pirate tale that stretches back to 1892. Back then, a pirate buried gold on Adak Island worth over $300 million. He died before he could return though, stashing said gold in tin cans across the landscape. His treasure is still out there, somewhere across the inhospitable terrain of this island.
Fast forward to the present and a bunch of treasure hunters arrive to unearth said gold and uncover the secrets of the island. Only, there’s a problem. They have absolutely no idea where the gold is. All they have to go on is a single black and white photo and some hunches, banking most of this on whatever else they find on the island. An island, I may add, that’s rigged with explosives.

Has Pirate Gold Of Adak Island been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Pirate Gold Of Adak Island has not been renewed for a second season. Given the ending though, it would seem this one is pretty conclusive, unless of course the gang decide to double down their efforts and blow up more of the island.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate per episode. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars). Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Pirate Gold Of Adak Island has had a pretty mixed reception with most critics loving this one (we seem to be the outlier here!) and audiences disliking this 8 episode docu-series/reality drama.
Based on the ending and reception, we’re predicting that Pirate Gold Of Adak Island will not be renewed for a second season. Despite these sort of shows being relatively easy to make, we can’t see a second season getting the views needed to justify a renewal.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel.
However, if the streaming giants do renew this one, you can expect plenty more treasure hunting and scientific rationale (see: guesswork) over where the rest of the gold may be.
We’re under the impression that there will not be a season 2 but of course, we will aim to update this page when more concrete information becomes available!
