Fans of the Discovery Channel's Emmy-winning "Deadliest Catch" are concerned that Elliott Neese, one of show's stars, is missing from a sneak peek of the upcoming season.

"Deadliest Catch" tells the stories of a handful of fishing vessels and their crews as they risk their lives in one of the most dangerous professions in the world — crabbing in the Bering Sea.

Neese, captain of the Ramblin' Rose, had a tough time last season, and he's notably absent from the preview of the first episode of the ninth season, "Mutiny on the Bering Sea."

"Last season, Elliott faced huge setbacks both at sea and at home," the narrator says in the clip. "Now, his career may have come to an end."

Neese turned up weak numbers last season on the show, and was even cited by State Wildlife Troopers for undersized St. Matthew blue king crab (by law, this kind of crab must measure at least 5.5 inches).

Neese's personal life seemed in shambles too. In February 2012, Neese's ex-girlfriend and mother of his two kids, Valerie Gunderson, accused him of harassment via calls and text messages. She reportedly secured a temporary restraining order against Neese and also also accused him of grabbing and injuring her, destroying her property, and using illegal drugs.

But it seems Neese won't be gone for long. He tweeted in response to a fan last week and plugged the "Deadliest Catch" premiere.

The ninth season of "Deadliest Catch" premieres Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on Discovery.
