Season 8 / Episode 1 and airs on 25 August 2018 01:00
This spring, Animal Planet takes a journey deep into Alaska's bush, where naturalist and adventurer Billy Brown, along with his wife, Ami, and their seven children, chooses to live life on his own terms, connected to wild nature and bonded to each other. In the new series Alaskan Bush People, the family of nine strives to be self-sufficient against all odds- often shunning modern society to live off the wilderness and to walk where no man has ever walked before. After the tragic death of his parents and sister that left him orphaned at 16, Billy Brown vowed to live life on his own terms and create his own family to reclaim the love that he lost. With Ami by his side, Billy traveled the lower 48 states and eventually found home in the sprawling landscape of the last frontier, where they have spent most of the last 30 years raising their children. "Our family is doing what is natural for human beings to do. We survive on what we hunt, fish, trap and barter for," Brown says. "We explore, we wander, we live. If you think about it, it's the life we were meant to live."
Never before seen footage is unveiled as the Brown family of nine gets ready for their first summer on their land. Exclusive sneak peeks of the upcoming season are also featured.
The Brown family of nine makes the most of the long days during the short Alaskan summer. They hatch a plan to deal with a lumber shortage but then a sudden injury threatens to split the family apart.
In the wake of Ami's injury, the Browns have to work even harder to stay on track with winter prep. Birdie, Gabe and Bear set off to climb the alpine in search of deer. Bear steps up as hunt leader and his skills are immediately put to the test.
When an emergency brings Browntown to a halt, Billy makes an unexpected choice that will forever change the lives of the entire wolf pack. Matt steps up to take his role as eldest Brown brother more seriously.
In honor of Billy's birthday, the family sets up a series of surprises and celebrations. A visit from old childhood friends inspires Billy, Ami and the rest of the wolf pack to reflect back on a lifetime of stories and adventures in the wild.
Matt, Bam, Bear, and Gabe head out on their first-ever hauling job without father and it's anything but smooth sailing. Back in Browntown, Bird, Rain, and Noah do their best to keep their homestead stable.
Matt, Bam, Gabe, and Bear just want to get home, but engine trouble cripples the Integrity. In Browntown, the rest of the family continues to prep for winter while competing with their bear neighbors.
With hope of redeeming themselves after their disastrous first hauling job, the four eldest Brown brothers prepare for a second solo mission. Then, two very different visitors show up in Browntown.
Matt, Bam, Bear, and Gabe feel the strain of making deliveries in harsh conditions. Meanwhile, circumstances back in Browntown force a decision that will change the lives of the wolf pack forever.
This special features a look back at the Brown's first summer on Chichagof Island. When the dream of putting down roots and building up Browntown is derailed by a relentless series of calamities, the wolfpack is forced to make unexpected choices.
The Browns head south; Bear and Bam commemorate their time in the lower 48 states in an extreme way.
