Shark Week 2016: Full Schedule For All The New Shows – How, When, And Where To Watch

The summer is officially here and well underway, but it doesn’t truly begin until you’re scared out of your mind by the reality of what terrors live in the water. That’s right, Shark Week 2016 is coming and it begins in just one week on the Discovery Channel. The full schedule has been released for this year’s huge event, and it includes the return of the ever-popular Shark After Dark special, and there is so much more.

All of the fun begins on Sunday, June 26, and if you happen to be in Los Angeles, you’re in for an extra special treat.

Variety is reporting that starting on that day, guests can visit the Paley Center’s Los Angeles location for a free virtual reality exhibit that will work in conjunction with Shark Week. Honestly, it sounds terrifying.

“The special VR exhibit, equipped with Samsung headsets, will give shark fans a jaw-dropping experience that features multiple virtual reality experiences for visitors to explore and immerse themselves in the popular summer television event.”

It will take place on Wednesdays to Sundays and is set to run through July 3.

For those who won’t be able to make it out to Los Angeles, there is still plenty coming your way on the Discovery Channel. Now, you will be able to know how, when, and where to watch all of the shark-swimming action.

shark week 2016 schedule discovery channel [Image via Discovery Channel]Discovery Channel has some great descriptions on all of this year’s new shows, and some of them are pretty insane. One of the most intriguing has to be Sharks vs. Dolphins: Face Off which premieres on Wednesday evening, and it will bring a battle that some may be shocked by.

“Sharks and dolphins have shared the ocean for ages, but only recently, scientists have begun to understand the true nature of the relationship between these two masters of the sea. It’s hostile, and dangerous, mainly for dolphins. Some dolphins bear scars from shark bites, and some are killed or scavenged by sharks after death. This is evidence for scientists who seek to understand the struggles between these powerful predators. Dr. Mike Heithaus and his team bring new research that may solve why sharks attack dolphins far more than we ever knew.”

Each and every year, Discovery Channel delivers some of the most frightening and terrifying television that anyone will see. Shark Week 2016 is going to be no different as this full week’s schedule brings about some new series and new episodes of old favorites while making you realize that the true terror is that all this is real. Sharks lie in the deep and sometimes even in the shallows so it’s not a bad idea to be fully educated on them.
