‘Gold Rush’ Star Todd Hoffman Returns to TV With New Series ‘Hoffman Family Gold’

by Megan Molseed

Todd Hoffman exited the popular Discover Channel series Gold Rush in 2018. Now Hoffman, one of the popular reality show’s initial stars is returning to the business with a brand new series. The new series, Hoffman Family Gold features Todd Hoffman and members of his family, father Jack, and son Hunter. The series follows Todd, Jack, and Hunter as they join crew members Jim Thurber, Andy Spinks, and Randy Hubler.

‘Gold Rush’s’ Todd Hoffman Branches Out With A New Discovery Channel Series, ‘Hoffman Family Gold’

Todd Hoffman was a main player during the first few years the Discovery Channel’s #1 rated series Gold Rush was on the air. During his time on the series, Hoffman and his crews worked tirelessly to uncover riches as they mined for the valuable element in Oregon. Some fans rooted endlessly for Hoffman and his crew members; while other fans of the show felt Hoffman spent more time making promises than actually following through with his plans. Now, Hoffman Family Gold takes Todd Hoffman and his Family Gold crew to Nome Alaska; where they are braving the wintery elements and other challenges to make a rundown gold mine profitable once again.

“Love him or hate him, fans of Discovery’s #1-rated show Gold Rush have watched Todd Hoffman from the very beginning,” notes an early description of the series. 

“When the original dreamer took to mining and launched the franchise,” the release continues.

“Todd has excavated mine after mine for a chance to strike it rich in gold,” the Discovery Channel notes.

“After hanging up his gold pan more than four years ago, Todd is banking his future mining career on turning around a rundown mine far off the grid 80 miles north of Nome, Alaska,” the series description continues. “With Alaska’s unforgiving weather, rookie crews, and beat-up equipment, the mine is struggling to keep operations going.”

‘Hoffman Family Gold’ Seeks To Build A Brand-New Family Legacy In the Gold-Mining Business

As the description of the new Discovery Channel series notes, this move that Hoffman is making in the new series is a “big gamble” for the reality television star. However, if his efforts are successful, the Discovery Channel notes, Hoffman and his team will “secure the mining rights for the next decade and could build a family legacy.”

This journey will certainly not be an easy one, however. Especially as Hoffman and his crew arrive at the Alaskan mine site just weeks before winter sets in.

“Will Todd, Jack and Hunter Hoffman along with their crew be able to find enough gold to get this mine in the black?” asks the series description. “Or will this be the last mining chapter for the Hoffmans?” Only time will tell, of course. Fans can catch new episodes of the brand new Discovery Channel series on Fridays at 8 p.m.
