Fear of Death

There is a possibility that the Lagina brothers might fear death. The official website of this show teases that the island is allegedly cursed. It further adds, there’s an old prophecy that says “7 will die before the treasure is found.” The Season 4 finale has wrapped up on a disappointing note. It has not made any major revelation.

Fear Of Lack Of Money

Fans are aware that the Lagina brother’s quest to uncover 200 years old mysterious alleged treasure has made them spend a lot of money. They have already spent a fortune to get access to the island.

Kevin Burns, series creator, and executive producer says, Lagina’s sunk somewhere between $3 million and $5 million in season 4 alone, reported Local Xpress. The report further adds that Burns says, “They only had enough money this year to dig two big holes in the money pit site.”

This drops a hint that perhaps, Lagina brothers fear that they might require more finance to have The Curse of Oak Island Season 5. In addition, there is no guarantee whether they will be successful at finding the alleged treasure hidden deep inside the island.

Fear of No Treasure

As mentioned above, Lagina brothers might fear that there are more stories to tell and no real treasure hidden on the island. As Burns says, “Do I think there’s more of the story to tell beyond this season? Yes.” He continues, “I think you could do 10 years on this show and you could find lots of things and lots of treasure, and I would still not be convinced that’s all there is to the story,” as per the aforementioned source.
