“Gold Rush” follows several groups of people who are seeking for gold in the deposits located on the north of America. The TV show was conceived to depict the process of gold mining in permafrost and the relationship between gold miners. It’s worth noting that the seventh season of “Gold Rush” was pretty successful, given the impressive television ratings. Though the season premiere has drawn a mere 2.853 million viewers with a 0.8 demo rating among adults (18-49), the following episodes have garnered over three million viewers each (excepting episode 3). The twelfth episode of the seventh season has gained 3.750 million viewers with a 1.12 demo rating. An overall score of the reality show remains very high as well. Currently, according to IMDB, “Gold Rush” has a score of 7.2 out of 10 based on approx. 3,000 user votes.

Discovery has yet to announce the decision on renewal or cancellation of the reality television series.
