It's back on board for three captains from Deadliest Catch.

Sig Hansen and bothers Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand, who had threatened to leave the popular adventure reality series, say they've resolved their differences with Discovery.

"We're happy we worked everything out with Discovery," the trio say in a statement. "A deal's a deal. We're heading up to Dutch Harbor to start filming the new season of Deadliest Catch and hopefully it will be the best one yet."

The network sued the Hillstrand brothers for $3 million in September, claiming they failed to finish production on their planned spin-off, Hillstranded.

"Everyone worked really hard on putting together Hillstranded and we're looking forward to wrapping that up," the Hillstrand brothers say in a statement. "It's something new that we hope people will enjoy."
