IT'S TIME TO SHINE FOR THE FOURTH SEASON OF DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S "MOONSHINERS," PREMIERING ON NOVEMBER 4
The boys are back in the woods and the black market for white lightning is thriving more than ever before when MOONSHINERS returns to Discovery for its fourth season on November 4 at 9PM ET/PT.
The secret and illegal world of moonshining stretches all across Appalachia raking in a pretty penny for those who choose to shine. Moonshiners will go to unprecedented extremes in their efforts to hide their still sites and cloak their distribution networks, some can hide in plain sight. With new styles of shine being tested and sold there is a king's ransom waiting for those bold enough to grab it. But those who enforce the law are wise to shiner deceptions and more determined than ever to catch them red handed and in the act of making Moonshine. The day of reckoning may be around the corner, but don't sell the Moonshiners short. Each has a keen understanding of how to stay one step ahead of the law in their region, and in this ongoing cat and mouse game you never know who will end up in the trap.
This season, Tim is back, distilling legally, but his operation is quickly put to a halt when Limestone Distillery is the target of arson. As Tim gets to the bottom of who burned down his legal distillery, he has to make some hard choices, as Tickle, Tyler and Chico continue to make the shine in the mountains of Kentucky, keeping the outlaw distillers running and moonshine adventures rolling, while Jim Tom and Roy pair up to get their piece of the lucrative moonshine pie. The stakes remain high and with the law on their trail, Jeff, Mark, and Lance decide to move their operation into forbidden and unknown territory. Not being at the mercy of the changing weather does come with a price, the chances of getting caught are much higher and they're more susceptible to danger.
In the lead up to the MOONSHINERS season premiere on November 4, catch up with the shiners on MOONSHINERS: THE OFF SEASON on October 28 at 9PM ET/PT as they get in some last minute rest and relaxation. Tim spends his time training some rookie shiners in the old ways of making liquor. Tickle, Chico, and Tyler head to a dam to do a little fishing, and where Tickle goes, trouble usually follows. In North Carolina, Jim Tom hops on his hog and hits the town. Mark decides to get back to his roots in the mountains, while Jeff & Lance go in search of a bigger, better still pot, hoping to increase production and make up for last season's setbacks. Meanwhile in South Carolina, Josh and Bill head to pick up Josh's new and improved truck, but Bill has some reservations about Josh's flashy style.
