The upcoming sixth season of 'Deadliest Catch,' which premieres Tue., April 13 at 9PM ET, looks to be a bittersweet affair.

A new promo features deceased Captain Phil Harris and close-ups of the rugged features of crew members from the crabbing boats of Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The spot is filmed in sepia tones while Eddie Vedder's reflective ballad, 'Rise,' plays in the background.

This will be the last season with Harris. The tough-as-nails fishing boat captain of Cornelia Marie suffered a massive stroke Jan. 29 while in port off-loading at St. Paul Island, Alaska and died.The upcoming sixth season of 'Deadliest Catch,' which premieres Tue., April 13 at 9PM ET, looks to be a bittersweet affair.

This will be the last season with Harris. The tough-as-nails fishing boat captain of Cornelia Marie suffered a massive stroke Jan. 29 while in port off-loading at St. Paul Island, Alaska and died.

Harris, and his tattooed arms, figure prominently in the spot.

"I always feel better having my kids with me,'' says Harris in a voiceover during the spot. Harris' sons are deckhands Jake and Josh. "I'm lucky being able to fish with them, spend time with them, get to know them -- really know them.''

Season six of 'Deadliest Catch' had already been shot with Harris at the helm of his ship in search of king crab in the frigid Bering Sea before he died. 'Deadliest Catch' fans posted hundreds of pages of condolences in an outpouring of grief on
the Discovery Channel's 'Catch' Web site upon news of his passing.

Deadliest Catch is one of my favorite shows, after watching it, you come to know these folks and they are like part of your family.
When something tragic happens like with Captain Phil, the viewers want to know, they want to support the show and the family. Our hearts and prayers go out to them, friends and family, we will miss you Captain Phil....
