"Deadliest Catch" star Nick McGlashan has sadly passed on. The fisherman was in Nashville when he died, and we have the details on the sad news below.


TMZ reported on the death of “Deadliest Catch” star Nick McGlashan; he died at 33. The Medical Examiner and his family revealed the news to the outlet that McGlashan died on Sunday in Nashville.

However, the 7th generation fisherman's cause of death has not yet been determined. McGlashan has been part of the show since 2013 and appeared in 78 episodes.

The reality show’s star’s love for the sea runs in the family, and he started crabbing when he was just 13 years old. McGlashan earned his stripes and piloting the Cape Caution, and he eventually upgraded to the Summer Bay.

He was a determined individual on the boat, and even though it had mechanical issues, he soldiered on. McGlashan sounds like he was the type of person who would not give up on a challenge.


Although he was a trooper at sea, McGlashan struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol for years. The situation worsened, and he ended up being suspended from part of Season 13 and went to rehab.


The circumstances led him to drink half-gallon of vodka and shooting up with one gram of meth and 2 grams of heroin in a day. McGlashan tried to be sober and said that he was trying to inspire others to get clean.


Even so, he weathered the storm. The now late catcher is one of the few who died this year as his fellow co-star Mahlon Reyes died from a heart attack at 38.

Reyes was a deckhand on the reality show. Family and friends paid tribute on a memorial Facebook page that said that the crew member died on July 27.


Reyes died a day after he was rushed to North Valley Montana Hospital in his hometown. According to USA Today, his family removed him from life support as they said that his body was tired.

They described him as a very strong person and that he was surrounded by all those who loved him dearly. The show’s deck boss McGlashan paid his respects on social media with a picture of Reyes on deck at the time.


“Deadliest Catch” has suffered a great loss. According to TV Insider, in September, the season finale showed the early days of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The Emmy-winning reality show's season 16 was shot mid-February when Covid-19 began spreading around the globe. There were thorough measures in place at the time. The executive producer, Bill Howard, gave the Discovery Channel's new season the go-ahead.


Besides McGlashan and Reyes from the award-winning show who have lost their lives this year, we look at other stars who have passed on in 2020. Rebecca Luker, a Tony-nominated Broadway actress, died at age 59.

Actor Jeremy Bulloch, who famously portrayed Boba Fett in the "Star Wars" trilogy, died on December 17. Bulloch suffered from health complications after living with Parkinson’s disease for years.

Charley Pride, a country singer, died from coronavirus, and he was 86 years old. Acting veteran Carol Sutto, known for one of her appearances in "Queen Sugar," also died to from the virus.
