The Discovery+ reality show, Hoffman Family Gold, follows the journey of the Hoffman family as they search for gold in various locations across the globe. The series is a spin-off of the hit show Gold Rush, which follows a similar format of individuals or families searching for gold.

The Hoffman family comprises patriarch Todd Hoffman, his son Hunter, and their friends and crew members. Together, they travel to different countries in search of gold deposits and battle various challenges along the way. The show's premise is to bring to life the real-life thrill of gold mining and the hard work, danger, and adventure that come with it.

The series is shot much like reality shows, with the camera following the crew members closely as they explore rough and rugged terrains, risking their lives in search of their dreams. The Hoffmans encounter intense conditions like freezing temperatures, rough mountain ranges, and dense forests, all adding to the exhilaration of the search. Along the way, they meet locals and experts who help them in their quest and learn about the history of gold mining in different parts of the world.

The Hoffmans have experience mining in various locations, including Alaska, where Gold Rush is set. In Hoffman Family Gold, they expand their horizons by mining in other countries like Guyana, Peru, and Papua New Guinea. Each location offers unique challenges and opportunities, for example, in Guyana, they get to explore the region's untouched rainforests, while Peru provides an opportunity to explore gold-rich mineral deposits.

Despite the risks involved in gold mining, the Hoffmans remain hopeful with every new challenge that comes their way. They use modern state-of-the-art equipment, including drones, to identify promising locations to search for gold deposits. The show's production quality showcases these technologies, which is often a highlight for viewers. While there's a thrill in finding gold, the show doesn't shy away from showing how painstaking the gold mining business is. This is especially the case when the crew faces setbacks like equipment malfunctions or mining in locations with low production rates.

Another unique aspect of the show is the emphasis on family dynamics. Throughout the show, we see how Todd and Hunter work together and alongside other family members and friends to achieve their shared goal. While they have different strategies and approaches, the Hoffmans ultimately come together to pool their efforts to complete tasks. The show also highlights the tough and emotional decisions that come with running a family business, from finances to leadership roles.

Additionally, the show features stunning visuals of different countries visited, and the crew often takes some time off to enjoy the landscape and culture when not mining. In between high-stakes mining adventures, the Hoffmans take in local culture and relax with locals, giving viewers a glimpse of different parts of the world's history, culture and topography.

Overall, Hoffman Family Gold offers a thrilling and engaging look into what it takes to be a part of the modern-day gold mining industry. With larger-than-life characters and breathtaking locations, the show makes a compelling case for the highs and lows of this dangerous yet rewarding venture. Fans of the Gold Rush series are sure to enjoy this new family-centric spinoff.

Hoffman Family Gold is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (23 episodes). The series first aired on March 25, 2022.
