Jeremy Wade will be back with his scary underwater creatures: Animal Planet has renewed River Monsters for a seventh season.

The unscripted show that sends Wade sleuthing for freshwater mysteries is Animal Planet’s best-performing series ever. It’s sixth season debut was its most-watched-season premiere and also ranked as the most-watched network season premiere among key demos.

The two-hour opener, dubbed “Amazon Apocalypse,” averaged 1.7 million viewers.

The sixth season finale of River Monsters will air Monday, May 26 at 9 ET with “Body Snatcher,” an episode in which Wade investigates rumors of a body-snatching spirit and predatory freshwater mermaid that is said to drag men deep into the river, never to be seen again.
