Todd Hoffman is Getting One Last Shot at Gold Mining

By: Discovery

Four years after leaving Gold Rush Todd Hoffman has been given an opportunity too good to pass up. Will he strike it big? Or walk away penniless? Keep reading to learn more about the Hoffman's return next year on Discovery and discovery+.

September 24, 2021

After ending a checkered mining season in Colorado in 2018, Todd is ready to get back in the game. Gold mining runs in his blood. Jack, Todd's father, mined for gold in the 1980s, but never struck it big. Now, Todd is more determined than ever to make good on his father's dreams.

When faced with an opportunity too good to pass up, the Hoffman's are packing their bags and heading back to Alaska. Will he finally strike it big? Or walk away penniless?

The Hoffman crew is returning to mine once again next year on Discovery and streaming on discovery+.


This time around Todd is emptying his life savings into a distressed mine located nearly 100 miles north of Nome, Alaska, owned by an old mining partner. However, after years of greenhorn crews, busted equipment, and little to no results, Todd can't afford any mistakes.


If he can pull this gamble off, Todd will secure the mining rights for the next decade and could build a family legacy. But can he do it in just six weeks before the winter season sets in?

In order to make his dream a reality, he’s bringing in his closest family and friends. Joining Todd in Alaska will be his father Jack and his son Hunter along with a veteran crew of gold miners. For Todd, it’s more than just finding gold - this could be Todd’s last chance to set up his family for generations to come and share the wealth with his friends who’ve stuck by his side over the years. This is Todd’s time to prove he has what it takes to hit the ultimate motherlode. One thing is for sure...the pressure is on.
