Watch: Five little known facts about the Lagina brothers

Rick, Marty and the Oak Island team are back for the biggest season yet – bringing with them more resources and technology than ever in their quest to solve the 224-year-old treasure mystery in The Curse of Oak Island.

They are the most famous treasure hunters on our TV screens and we’ve enjoyed watching Rick and Marty in their ongoing quest to uncover the Oak Island treasure. Over 7 years and 121 episodes, we’ve watched Rick and Marty their way across the island in search of the fabled money pit, along the way unearthing tantalising clues about the mysterious island.

Now, with season 8, the Fellowship will be going further than ever before. Refusing to be cowed by the coronavirus pandemic, the boys emerge from quarantine to embark on an epic 'big dig' of the swamp, and conduct an ambitious excavation of the old 19th Century searcher shafts. Could the secret of the island finally be on the brink of being discovered?

After seismic testing conducted at the end of last season revealed a possible sunken ship buried in the triangle-shaped swamp, the team will use sonic core drilling, strategic dives and finally a historic big dig to find out what could be buried below. Now, fully partnered with fellow landowner Tom Nolan, Rick, Marty and Craig Tester will have unprecedented access to areas of the island that they hope will yield answers.  

While we’ve been focussed on the Oak Island mystery, fans of the show may have other questions about their favourite series and about the brothers themselves. Have you ever wondered how much Marty is worth or what Rick used to do as a job before becoming a full-time treasure hunter or how on earth they first heard of the mystery in the first places? Well, never fear, we’ve put together this short video about 5 Little Known Facts about the Laginas.
