The second season of Jungle Gold was cut short. As was Utahns Scott Lomu and George Wright's search for gold. The men and the film crew had to make a quick retreat from Ghana when faced with an armed militia.

After a one-hour behind-the-scenes special on Friday at 9 p.m. on Discovery, the two-hour Season 2 finale airs at 10 p.m.
