In fact, many doubted that the show even may have six rounds. Nonetheless, HISTORY opted to pick up The Curse of Oak Island for one more season, which premiered on November 13, 2018. One may argue that looks like the current season is finished and the rest twelve episodes should premiere within the frameworks of Season 7.
Yet such opinion is mistaken since HISTORY has already announced S6E17 titled "Clue or False," which kicks off March 19, 2109. Therefore, the current, sixth season, will contain 30 episodes, as we mentioned above.
So what about Season 7? Certainly, the decision of HISTORY to extend the sixth season for twelve additional episodes looks ambivalent. On the one hand, such a decision can mean the intention of the network to wrap up the show after its "final," sixth season.
On the other, it might serve as an indicator of the incredible popularity of the reality show. The Curse of Oak Island more and more proves its place in the HISTORY channel lineup. If we take a look at the television ratings of the sixth season they look incredible stable.
The current season premiere has garnered 2,915 million viewers with a 0.66 key demo (P18-49). At the same time, the latter episodes have drawn over 3 and even 3,5 million viewers. In other words, each new season of The Curse of Oak Island surpasses its predecessor. Isn't it a magic? The target audience of the series is growing thereby.
