Shark Tank has become a true touchstone, as the reality series has become ingrained in pop culture, with references in TV shows, movies and more. And things aren't looking to slow down as Shark Tank season 15 is here.

In fact, Shark Tank may gain even more notoriety with this new season as it is going to be one the ABC's most popular shows airing new episodes. Because of the ongoing writers' strike delaying shows like The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy and 9-1-1 (new to ABC) from their usual fall premieres, Shark Tank and other reality shows (Dancing with the Stars, The Golden Bachelor) and game shows (Celebrity Jeopardy!, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Press Your Luck) are picking up the slack.

With that in mind, here is everything you need to know about Shark Tank season 15.

When is the next Shark Tank season 15 episode?

Shark Tank season 15 comes to an end with its final episode airing on Friday, May 3, at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC.

The Sharks (Mark Cuban, guest Shark Candace Nelson, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner and Daymond John) hear pitches for a protein bar with a brain-health mission, coffee substitute that does not cause jitters, organic plant-care products, and an easier way to floss.

Shark Tank premise

Most people probably know the idea by now, but just in case, Shark Tank is a reality show that gives aspiring entrepreneurs a chance to get the critical investment they need to help grow their businesses.

The entrepreneurs give a pitch on their business to five "Sharks," highly successful business people, and ask for an investment for a potential stake in their company. The Sharks can then either pass on the business or make an offer, and if multiple people make an offer, it can become a bit of a bidding war.

Shark Tank season 15 hosts

There are five hosts/investors on every episode of Shark Tank, with many rotating in and out every once in a while. That said, there are six who have become the main fixtures on the show: Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O'Leary.

Other investors that have participated in the show include Richard Brunson, Bethenny Frankel, Emma Grede, Kevin Hart, Peter Jones, Ashton Kutcher, Daniel Lubetzky, Gwyneth Paltrow, Alex Rodrigeuz and Nirav Tolia.

This season, some new guest sharks have included Fanatics chairman and CEO Michael Rubin and Blumhouse CEO and founder Jason Blum.
