Alaska: The Last Frontier Is Coming Soon, Here are 3 Things You Need to Know About the New Season

Don't miss the brand-new season of Alaska: The Last Frontier, premiering Sunday, October 6 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

For over 80 years, generations of Kilchers have survived on the Alaskan homestead, passing down valuable lessons, techniques and skills while continuously learning new homestead practices necessary for the preservation of their unique Alaskan lifestyle.

In the newest season of Alaska: The Last Frontier, the next generation must rise up like never before and take on new challenges and fresh opportunities to lead the Kilcher family into the future. How will the Kilchers continue to balance the need for progress while holding strong to family tradition? Here's 3 things to look out for in the new season:

  1. Weather on the homestead has become more unpredictable than ever and the Kilchers must strike back against a rapidly changing Alaskan wilderness. A warmer, earlier spring has prematurely melted most of the winter snow, turning the homestead pastureland into a life-threatening muddy swamp for their cattle.
  2. A primary goal for the Kilchers is to expand their grazing land to remote Perl Island, an area without predators that will keep their animals safe. But the island’s tumultuous weather and perilous seas make it dangerous for the Kilchers to travel there safely.
  3. For the first-time ever in the series, Kilcher women Jane and Eve embark on the first hunt of the season, making their mark as leaders of the Kilcher family.

The brand new season premieres October 6 at 8pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #ATLF, and follow Alaska: The Last Frontier on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.
