Viewers are hoping that they will now find something big or will at least get over the setbacks. Fans are also eager to know what the treasure really is.

It is noted that the brothers failed many times already but with the new season coming up, it shows that they did not lose their faith in their historic quest.

But whether they will discover the real treasure beneath the hole of the island or not, fans need to find out when it airs next month. Six people already died while hunting for this treasure in season 4. Hence, they need to find something relevant to at least give justice to the death of these people. Will there be more deaths this season 5? MobiPicker reveals that there will be more deaths this season. Fans hope that their favorite characters will not face their demise.

Tales about the treasure

Different teams already tried to find the treasure on the island.

Back in 1860, a code was deciphered which reportedly says that there are two million pounds buried 40 feet below. But the Lagina brothers already drilled over 190 feet but they did not find any treasure at all.

MobiPicker further reports that there are various theories about the treasure. One theory states that the treasure is a pirate booty while another suggests that these are the lost jewels of Mario Antoinette.

This treasure remains a mystery until now. Will there be a development this season? Or is this treasure just a hoax?
