(Los Angeles) - After making their long-awaited return to the wild last year, the Brown family is back for a brand-new adventure-filled season of Discovery Channel's top-rated series, ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE. With their first foothold of self-sufficiency realized with the construction of their barn last season, the Browns re-dedicate themselves to the life they love off-grid in the wild mountains of the pacific northwest. They're closer than ever to realizing their lifelong family dream of a sustainable ranch but must overcome new challenges and incredible family changes as a brutal winter hits earlier than expected. ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE returns Sunday, March 3 at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
It's a race against mother nature's clock as the wolfpack attempts to build a winterized cabin, hunt, and stockpile food ahead of a harsh winter. Last year's record snowfall made it clear that the Brown's temporary shelter will not withstand their first full winter on the mountain, placing more pressure than ever on the family's need to complete necessary infrastructure, including a suitable shelter before the mountain freezes.
This season also brings extraordinary changes for the Brown family. Billy, the Brown family patriarch, has an expansive new vision for the family's homestead, including new livestock, and a 2000lb bull. Ami continues her incredible recovery in her fight against cancer and passes on her bush knowledge to the wolfpack. Bird spearheads hunts, and steps further into her role as a leader. Bam, the second-born son and the family's voice of reason, has his hands full with new builds for the ranch. Bear continues to immerse himself in the wild, while Gabe puts his new-found love life front and center. As youngest daughter Rain approaches adulthood, she faces high expectations and potential failure, against the tradition of Brown family rites of passage.
The biggest change of all comes as Noah, the family inventor, and his new wife Rhain-Alisha get news that they are expecting the first grandchild of the wolfpack. Noah races to build the perfect bush home on the ranch for his growing family.
Throughout the season, the Brown clan is pushed to their limits as they overcome new obstacles in their quest to rebuild their natural home in the wilderness.
