Curse of Oak Island: The Story of Captain James Anderson

Captain James Anderson seemed to have been a privateer at the start of the American Revolution. For those who are unsure about the exact meaning of the term, a privateer is someone who has been empowered by a government to predate upon foreign shipping, thus making them a useful supplement to a government’s naval power. This is known because there is a 1777 document recording his intentions to auction off a captured ship as well as its cargo of wood at his house in Baltimore, which was a common practice for privateers. When the American Revolution started up, Captain James Anderson was one of those who signed up with the rebel cause. As a rebel, he started out as a lieutenant on someone else’s ship but managed to rise until he was in command of his own ship. However, the captain then chose to sail into New York, which resulted in him becoming a loyalist privateer. His newfound status is mentioned by a page from the Pennsylvania Gazette, which claimed that he was one of a number of loyalist privateers operating in Chesapeake Bay. READ MORE...

How Much Funding Does Curse of Oak Island Get from the NSBI?

NSBI stands for Nova Scotia Business Inc. Like its name suggests, NSBI exists for the purpose of helping businesses in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, thus making it rather similar in nature to a wide range of organizations that can be found in a wide range of places. With that said, it is interesting to note that NSBI has a fair amount of independence from the Nova Scotian government, which was provided to it because of the latter’s concern over micromanagement. Regardless, one of NSBI’s functions is to provide funding for the purpose of making the province of Nova Scotia a more pleasing place to set up business operations. Of course, this extends to the production of both movies and TV shows, which is why NSBI has something called the Nova Scotia Film and Television Production Incentive Fund under its umbrella. Recently, the announcement was made that NSBI would be using said fund to provide the production of The Curse of Oak Island with $1,926,689 in funding, which makes sense because the titular island is one of the more than three hundred islands that can be found in Mahone Bay off of the Atlantic coast of Nova Scotia.

Even though many of its followers were beginning to grow weary of the never-ending treasure hunt by the end of season 4, The Curse of Oak Island still maintained a steady fan base. The same people who had become impatient about the Lagina brothers were also the same ones begging for the network to renew the show for another season. Well, it looks like The History Channel heard the pleas; we have plenty of reason to believe that the cursed show is coming back for yet another few months of digging. It’s all still speculation, as the network hasn’t made any official announcements just yet. But we’re a little ahead of the game because we tend to follow the brothers on social media. Recent media posts have popped up on Instagram showing various clues pointing to the return of the Lagina brothers to the screen. The timing is about right also. In previous seasons, The Curse of Oak Island always premiered in November. This must mean that filming has ended, and we can now spot Rick and Marty out of The Money Pit.

Why It’s Time to Give up on The Curse of Oak Island

Like its name suggests, The Curse of Oak Island is centered around Oak Island, which can be found off of Mahone Bay in Nova Scotia, Canada. To be exact, the reality TV show is centered around the supposed mystery of Oak Island, which claims that there is treasure buried somewhere in a location called the money pit.

Rick and Marty Lagina are positive that there is a pirate treasure with a deadly curse hidden under Oak Island. After reports claiming the brothers lost interest on their hunting adventure, latest rumors have it that they agreed to do another season of The Curse of Oak Island. We don’t have details on when a 5th season of Oak Island will commence production but I do know there’s been a ton of back and forth on whether or not a season 5 was a go. Let’s face it folks. I’ve been calling this for months now. You don’t cancel a show when its 4th season finale was one of the highest watched shows in the entire history of The History Channel.
