Jason Momoa to Host Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week’

Discovery Channel’s annual Shark Week returns this summer for its 35th year with Aquaman star Jason Momoa set to host.

“As the host of Shark Week, I am beyond excited to take you along on this journey,” Momoa said in a statement. “This project means more to me than a week of talking about sharks. It’s a chance for me to learn and share my connection to these amazing creatures. My love of sharks came long before my time as Aquaman — it began several generations before me.”

Momoa resumes his role as the King of Atlantis in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom hitting theaters this December.
