Hoffman Family Gold Release Date, Cast, And Trailer - What We Know So Far

Discovery's "Gold Rush" continues to bring in the masses. The show may have gotten its start back in 2010, but even on Season 12, the show continues finding new ways to up the ante and put its various miners in harm's way. It may be difficult work, but there are vast riches to be earned, so it's no wonder why the likes of Parker Schnabel and Tony Beets have stuck around for so long. 

One person who left the main series a while ago was Todd Hoffman. After leading a team for eight seasons, he left the show to pursue other interests. However, it would appear as though that mining spirit didn't leave him entirely, as he'll soon make his triumphant return to Discovery to search for riches once again. Todd Hoffman will star in his own spinoff series, titled "Hoffman Family Gold," where he'll head back to Alaska in the hopes of striking it rich once again (via Oregon Live). It's must-watch TV for anyone who followed him for years on "Gold Rush," and here's what you need to know so far.

What's the release date for Hoffman Family Gold?

Todd Hoffman was a major draw on "Gold Rush" back when he was on it for the first eight seasons. His grit and ambition were major draws for viewers as he and his team traveled around the world searching for gold. It was a significant development when he left the series, but for anyone who's missed him the last few years, he'll soon make his return in a grand fashion. 

"Hoffman Family Gold" is set to debut on both Discovery and Discovery+ early in 2022. An exact date has not been given yet, but the show should come on the heels of "Gold Rush" Season 12 presently airing new episodes. 

The Hoffman team took to Twitter to discuss the new show, and fans were stoked to receive the news, with one user writing, "Yo Todd and Hoffman team. Glad you guys be back. This time no stupid hunches, only rely on science and engineering to find gold." Not only will Hoffman have to rely on state-of-the-art equipment, but he'll have some familiar faces joining him out in the field.

Who's in the cast for Hoffman Family Gold?

With a title like "Hoffman Family Gold," you better believe the new Discovery series is going to be a family affair. The announcement from Oregon Live confirms that Todd Hoffman will bring much of his family along for the journey, going on to read: "Joining Todd in Alaska will be his father Jack and his son Hunter along with a veteran crew of gold miners." Those names will be familiar to anyone who's watched the main "Gold Rush" series as they both appeared on that show, as well. It seems as if they'll all get a chance at redemption to see if they have what it takes to tough it out in the Alaskan wilderness after all. 

But it's not just Todd Hoffman's immediate family members he's thinking of. He wants to provide for his family for generations to come, as the announcement goes on to state, "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."

Where's the trailer for Hoffman Family Gold?

You can get a glimpse of what you can expect from the "Hoffman Family Gold" trailer on YouTube. At only a minute in length, it doesn't show a lot, but it does offer the general vibes of what the series will entail. As Hoffman himself says, "No guts, no glory."

Oregon Live's announcement offers further details on the kind of stakes audiences should anticipate going into the new show: "After ending a checkered mining season in Colorado in 2018, Todd is ready to get back in the game. He's emptying his life savings with the hope to turn around a distressed mine located nearly 100 miles north of Nome, Alaska."

Will he come out of the situation a far richer man, or will he head home with his tail between his legs? The only way to know is to tune in to "Hoffman Family Gold" when it airs in the near future.
