JEREMY WADE’S mega popular TV series, River Monsters, is ending.

River Monsters’  ninth series will be its last. It  starts on Sunday, April 23, at 9 pm on the Animal Planet channel.

The River Monsters series first started in 2008 and has had millions of fans on ITV and the Animal Planet channel .

River Monsters star Jeremy said: “Some shows can run forever, but our subject matter is finite.

“Ten years ago, I had a list in my head, which seemed impossibly ambitious at the time, but everything has now been ticked off – and then some.

“I have seen things beyond my wildest dreams, and sharing those moments has made them doubly special.”

River Monsters has produced some truly epic adventures and many huge specimens.
