Todd Hoffman and his father Jack were some of the main cast members on “Gold Rush” until their departure in 2018 after a difficult mining season (via Discovery). Considering they were on the show for eight dramatic seasons, they had more of a following than many of the departed former cast members. Perhaps this is why they’re returning to mining once again in the new “Gold Rush” spinoff “Hoffman Family Gold,” which is premiering in early 2022, according to Oregon Live.”Three years ago, I walked away from gold mining, a beaten man,” Todd Hoffman says in a teaser trailer for the new series. “Now, I’m going back to Alaska. I know it’s a long shot. It’s our last shot. But you know what? No guts, no glory.”
The show will feature three generations of Hoffmans — Todd’s son Hunter is also coming along for the ride — trying to make bank on a goldmine about 100 miles north of Nome, Alaska. According to the Discovery press release, the Hoffmans have put their remaining life savings into the mine, so the stakes are very high.
