Legend says one more person must die in pursuit of the treasure before Oak Island will reveal her secrets. The 16 year old son of one cast member died last year and he was on the show in a few episodes, so technically, that event has transpired so it shouldn't be long before the treasure is found.

This is why I place little credence in the guy I knew having been the Zodiac Killer.  Too many theories, too many "people of interest".  We'll probably never know the truth.

How they get excited about finding a fragment of pottery that's about the size of a dime just amazes me.
As PaWolf has pointed out, the Lagina brothers are funding this research themselves, but I just don't find the whole programme very interesting.
Scientific explorations are often very long and boring. To make a tv programme about this sort of exploration is ponderous!
I hate this programme!

I'd love to see them actually find something, but I don't think it's very likely. I was watching it pretty religiously there for a little while but I got tired of the repetition. The same 3D modeled animations recycled over and over again, the narrator [of Ancient Aliens fame] continuously saying "Could it be?"

Plus, they started bringing on a bunch of crackpots who would come in and spout some inane theories.

Ancient Aliens is another show on my sh*tlist but I suppose that's a topic for another day. Overall, the History Channel has gone wayyyy downhill. Even on anniversaries of important days in history, like WWII battles and other important events, they hardly have anything about those events. It's just: "Nah, we know what you really want. Back-to-back reruns of American God Damn Pickers and Pawn Stars for twelve hours straight!"

I somewhat miss the days when it was called the 'Hitler Channel' because at least they had some documentaries on.
"Sometimes we live no particular way but our own."

Like westerns? Check out my recently published e-book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KXLXA9Y

Season finale was this week and the season ended without any significant discoveries. Didn't they say when the new season started to air (but the entire season had been filmed) that there will be a major breakthrough?

Okay sure , Curse of Oak Island isn't much of a show as much as it's a curse . I've lost several hours of my life these past few years to Oak Island . That's the curse , it screws all its viewers out of an hour a week for 5 years ?
Until I found its salvation ...how ? By making it a drinking game , like any true American male would .
Every time the narrator says " Rick and Marty Lagina " drink a big slug of beer .
Any time the narrator introduces a specialist , drink bitch .
When the narrator tells the " curse " story , drink until he finishes the story .
If shots get involved ? Every supposed find on the island ...do a shot .
Any " this might shut us down " moment ...do a shot and wash it down , ya big baby .
When they mention Drake Tester ( which is extremely sad ) drink a glass of milk .
And by the end of the show , the hook drops , Stay tuned for scenes from Next Week on COOI .
by then you're so piss ripped you want to go dig up your own back yard ...
It grinds my gears

Drake Tester ...
But what about the Eastern European and the Arabian bone fragments . pretty sure those two guy died in connection with the money pit ?? Wouldn't it be fair to count them as #1 and #2 ?
