New Season Premieres /PT
(Los Angeles) – The Browns are back in an all-new season of Discovery Channel’s top-rated series ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE. After a year of hardship, the Browns are ready to make their long-awaited return to the wild. With over 400 acres of raw wilderness in the Pacific Northwest, the family faces new challenges - from severe weather to re-building their homestead in unfamiliar surroundings – that will make their bond stronger than ever. ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE was cable’s #1 unscripted program nights among men 25-54, 18-49 and 18-34 in 2017 and reached 27.5M total viewers across the season. ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE returns on Discovery.
The Brown’s quest for a new life in the bush begins with establishing their foothold on their new property, but trouble strikes when the road that leads to their new home becomes a treacherous winding path of mud. It’s crucial for the Brown’s to fix the road, but are they equipped to handle such a large task?
Following her year-long battle with cancer, Ami Brown, the family matriarch, heads back to the bush full of hope and optimism. Billy, the Brown family patriarch, is determined to continue the family’s self-sufficient and unique way of life. “As long as God, Ami, and my family are beside me, I'll ride the wind of adventure to the end.”
Matt, the first-born Brown sibling, brings his problem-solving skills and passion for the wild to the new homestead. Bam Bam, the second-born son and the family’s voice of reason, has his hands full with the new dangers of living on a remote mountain top. Noah is the inventor of the family, while Bear reconnects with his animal instincts deep in the bush. Gabe, having survived the most stressful year of his life, finds his old, humorous self in the wild. Snowbird and Raindrop are the two daughters of the Brown clan – Rain, the youngest, takes on a new role, helping the family build their biggest structure yet, while Bird, the family hunter, steps up to hold the entire wolfpack together when times are at their worst.
This season comes after life-altering challenges and strife, but the Browns are a family unlike any other – and with the whole family back together, they are determined to reclaim their natural home in the wild.
