The Travel Channel renews Philippe and Ashlan Cousteau's Caribbean Pirate Treasure series for a second season.

The Travel Channel (DStv 179 / Cell C black 255) has renewed its underwater series Caribbean Pirate Treasure for a second season.

Caribbean Pirate Treasure follows the husband and wife duo Philippe and Ashlan Cousteau.

Philippe, grandson of the legendary explorer Jacques Cousteau, and his journalist wife, Ashlan, will dive into 8 new half-hour seafaring stories of lost loot and pirates' plunder in the second season, with tropical locations like the Bahamas, Cuba and Panama that will be showcased in the new season that will start production later in January.

"'Caribbean Pirate Treasure is full of stunning locations, adventure, mysteries and great storytelling," says Courtney White, the senior vice president for programming for the Travel Channel in America.

"When you combine those elements with Philippe and Ashlan's innate curiosity, expertise and chemistry, you deliver a series that easily attracts the audiences that advertisers want".
