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."
As the Browns return home from the Lower 48, we look back on what they miss the most about Alaska. And in never before seen footage we get a glimpse of what it takes to make the series, along with exclusive sneak peeks of the exciting new season.
A happy homecoming for the Brown family means hard work is ahead to get Browntown back on track. Time away came at a cost and prospects are lean without a working skiff. A highly risky haul with an all or nothing offer may be the only solution.
While youngest Brown brother Noah stays behind to continue repairs to Browntown, the other 8 members of the wolfpack take on their riskiest haul ever in hopes of securing the skiff they desperately need. Failure will have far reaching consequences.
Patriarch Billy sees an opportunity to tie up loose ends, fortify his connection with the bush, and keep the wolf pack close with a family visit to the winter watch of Excursion Inlet. Along the way a failing anchor changes everything.
The family of nine takes advantage of an early spring to make progress on unfinished business. But a visitor from Billy's distant past brings potential to undermine the future of Browntown and what means to be a member of the wolf pack.
In this lost episode, to save the wolf pack from going stir crazy during Billy's medical treatment, the family heeds the call of the wild and goes on an adventure even further into the lower 48.
An unexpected visit from the mayor of the nearby island of Hoonah may forever change the face of Browntown. And the family must rally around strong man Gabe when the opportunity to realize a life-long dream comes with serious risks.
The wolfpack is on high alert after mysterious shots were fired causing property damage on the shores of Browntown. The strength of the family is tested as the Browns struggle to finish a salvage job shorthanded.
The Browns are busy making the most of the beginning of spring by hunting and building improvements to Browntown. But in just 72 hours, the family will be forced to leave the bush for an unknown fate in the Alaskan city of Juneau.
After thirty long days in Juneau, the Brown family reunites and plans a trip to rediscover their love of the bush. But an issue plaguing one of the children puts the sanctity of the wolfpack in jeopardy.
In anticipation of reuniting with one member, the family finally returns to Browntown to reclaim the bush. But as spring brings life to the forest, the Browns struggle with the principals that make them a Wolfpack.
In this special episode, a deeper look into the Brown's time spent down south. And in never before seen footage brothers Bear and Bam commemorate their time in the Lower 48 in an extreme way.
A look behind the lens at the countless hours spent to bring bush life to the lower 48 and how Brown luck influences what makes it to air.
