Alaskan Bush People returns to Discovery

One of the most unique families on TV returns with more off the grid adventures in the new season of Discovery’s Alaskan Bush People.

Having survived off the grid for almost 40 years, the Brown family has spent the past year working tirelessly to ready North Star Ranch, embarking on a mission to build infrastructure and finally realise their legacy on the mountain. This season, as spring descends, the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, Billy and Ami, push the next generation of the wolfpack, Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird and Rain to strengthen their own footholds on the mountain to create a bigger, better, more sustainable version of Browntown.

There’s a different dynamic this season with new wives and babies joining the family. Gabe and Noah are settling down with significant others and beginning their journeys as parents in the wild. Noah moves forward with his plans to build a home and bring Rhain Alisha and baby Elijah back to the mountain while Gabe and Raquel prepare for a bush wedding and a baby. After meeting his ‘bush princess’, Bear begins dating which leads to big news of his own. With more mouths to feed than ever before and depleted resources, the wolfpack is forced to create a much more self-sustainable mountain, with power and water connecting each individual dwelling.

The first episode sees the Brown family kick off their most ambitious plan to conquer the mountain yet. Bear and the siblings throw caution to the wind on a critical first project disassembling and transporting a salvaged 15 metre windmill which is integral to ensuring the ranch has access to water. Plus there’s no shortage of the quintessential Alaskan Bush People ingenuity as Noah builds a cement mixer from scratch, Bird finds use for all the hair shed by her 20 cats… homemade cushions, and Bear takes working out at home to a new level!

The Brown family will tackle new challenges like never before and every member of the wolfpack must make valuable contributions to the homestead in order for the family to survive and thrive on the mountain.
