In the Season 16 final episode, Jake Harris and his younger brother Captain Josh seemed to be at ease with each other and enjoying one another’s company. Was this a sort of hint about Jake’s status as part of the cast?
Josh Harris has been vocal about his wish for Jake to come back and be a part of the crew on their father’s crab boat. But, Jake’s life has been turbulent which is why his appearance came as a shock to many fans.
Why was Jake Harris on the Season 16 finale and is he coming back?
Fans are aware that the past few years have been difficult for Jake. The former Deadliest Catch cast member was arrested for drug possession in January of 2019 and he led police on a high-speed pursuit while he was in an RV—not smart if he thought he’d get away in a high profile vehicle like that.
In an exclusive interview for TV Shows Ace, April Neale talked to Captain Josh in June about his brother and we have the news for you here.
At that time Josh acknowledged that his brother was doing time for his crime and had been locked up for about five months.
Where has former Deadliest Catch star Jake Harris been and what has he been doing?
Josh said that Jake was, “doing really good,” alluded to a, “very small hiccup.” There was no elaboration on what that meant exactly but he made it clear that he loved and supported his brother.
Fans responded in droves on the Deadliest Catch World Facebook page. They were supportive and wrote about their wish to see Jake clean up his act and get back on track. Tons of fans posted their desire to see him back on the show.
That is a sentiment that Captain Josh, one of the two co-captains of the crab boat F/V Cornelia Marie, agrees with. Right now Josh is the only member of the Harris family fishing and he would like to do so once again with Jake. Josh has made it known that Jake could possibly earn a spot back on the boat.
Their father Captain Phil died ten years ago. Will Jake fulfill his legacy by returning to the F/V Cornelia Marie happen in Season 17?
