Whale WarsWhile the team on 'Whale Wars' completed their mission to convince Japan to suspend its controversial whaling operations, their work is still not done.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Captain Paul Watson and Peter Hammerstedt will star in a new spin-off tentatively titled 'The Faroe Islands Project.'

In the new series, the Sea Shepherds head to the Faroe Islands, halfway between the UK and Iceland. There, they will launch a land, sea and air campaign in an effort to stop "The Grind," an annual hunt for pilot whales that kills about 1,000 whales per year.

Shooting for the new series begins in July. No air date or episode count has been set.

Japan is rumored to be mulling a return to its whaling practices and EW reports Animal Planet is prepared to order a fifth season of 'Whale Wars' in response. Season 4 is currently airing on the network.
