(Los Angeles) — New goals, new challenges, and new additions to the Wolfpack push the Brown family to their limits in an all-new season of Discovery Channel’s hit series, ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE. After six months on the mountain, the Wolfpack has fully re-dedicated themselves to the goal of total self-sufficiency they began in Alaska. But winter is closing in and it’s a race against the clock as the Browns set out to achieve their dream of a big mountain ranch. The brand-new season of ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE premieres Sunday, August 4 at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
With land divided up amongst the Brown children, the family faces new wildlife threats as they race to complete necessary infrastructure, including unique homes for each sibling. With winter only weeks away, it becomes even more critical this season as the Wolfpack grows by one member, with the addition of Noah and wife Rhain Alisha’s first child, Elijah. The family’s excitement around the first Bush baby is accompanied with new challenges, but Noah’s resourcefulness is called upon as he works hard to create practical innovations for his new son including a self-warming baby bath, a power-tool driven baby rocker and a castle house.
This season also brings Billy closer to his dream of running a fully-functional family ranch equipped with horses, a fortified bullpen and a winterized barn. In addition, Ami continues to regain her strength and makes plans to start prepping for her garden in the spring. In the season premiere, the Brown family works together after a snowstorm to haul a connex up the mountain for Bear’s new dwelling. Bird and Rain discover a billy goat in their herd and go to extreme lengths to confirm their suspicions that one of the female goats is pregnant.
Throughout the season, the Wolfpack will work hard to accomplish their goals in pursuit of complete self-reliance, while mother nature and a freezing winter bring new challenges and dangers to their mountain homestead.
