Alaska: The Last Frontier Returns for a Landmark 10th Season

The Kilchers return to Discovery on Sunday, October 25th.

September 28, 2020

For the tenth season of ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER, the Kilchers are put to the ultimate test. With a potentially explosive summer wildfire season on the horizon and a global pandemic reaching Alaska, the Homer natives must dig deep to ensure their family’s continued survival on the 80-year-old homestead. With these threats encroaching, the family's food, farmland, and animals all become major concerns.

Life is always unpredictable on the homestead, but this season when the Covid-19 pandemic hits Alaska, the Kilchers must adapt like never before. When film crews must be evacuated, the Kilchers decide to continue to self-film their lives and the day-to-day mayhem of the homestead, and we see the Kilchers in a whole new way.

This season, Atz Sr. plans to rebuild the first cabin his family ever lived in on the homestead, but he suffers several health scares that threaten to sideline the project. Atz Lee wants to spend his summer to building a new off-grid cabin in the backcountry, but he experiences crippling episodes of PTSD from his life-threatening fall several years ago. 19-year-old Etienne steps in to help his father Atz Lee build the cabin and grapple with his PTSD. Otto, Charlotte, and their 23-year-old son August must contend with two complicated cattle drives during the pandemic. Meanwhile Eivin, with his wife Eve and two young children at home, severely cuts his leg and must be rushed to an emergency doctor for help.

With hunting off the homestead put on hold during the pandemic, Jane steps up to help fill the family’s freezer with fish and becomes the main provider of meat this summer. And after seeing so many locals hit hard economically, Eve plants a massive summer garden that is large enough to supply both the homestead and Homer's food bank with fresh fruits and vegetables. Meanwhile, August takes the opportunity to follow in his grandfather Yule’s footsteps as a filmmaker and document this unprecedented time on camera. This year, for the first time ever, the outside world comes crashing into the homestead, and the Kilchers must work to protect their way of life or face losing it.

The brand-new season of ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER premieres Sunday, October 25 at 9P ET on Discovery Channel.
