12:10 pm; 2:56 pm 
Shark Week: Dawn of Monster Mako
A team of marine biologists set out to clock the top speed of the fastest shark in the ocean—the Mako. Meanwhile, a second crew aims to prove that Makos are ambush predators that breach to kill their prey, just like Great Whites. (2022)

12:51 pm; 4:19 pm
Air Jaws: Ultimate Breach Off
Three teams of researchers return to one of the last hunting grounds for Air Jaws; they will use decoys, drones, and underwater cameras to collect data on hunting techniques to see if the shark population is rebounding. (2020)

1:33 pm; 3:37 pm
Extinct or Alive: Land of the Lost Sharks
Wildlife biologist and conservationist Forrest Galante dives into some of the most treacherous, shark-infested waters in the southern hemisphere all in an attempt to rediscover three unique sharks lost to science for as long as one hundred years. (2020)

2:14 pm; 5:00 pm
Shark Week: The Spawn Of El Diablo
In 2012, Michelle Jewell documented one of the largest Great White mating scars ever recorded. Recently, similar marks have appeared, leading her to believe this is a possible mating ground and that mega-shark El Diablo has returned to South Africa. (2021)
