New episodes of "Alaskan Bush People" are mere hours away and we're getting our first look at the Wolfpack back in action. In an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming season, the Brown family is getting acclimated to their new surroundings in rural Washington and setting up the new homestead. One of the first tasks requires dismantling and transporting a salvaged 50 ft windmill.
While sisters Birdy and Rainy look on, Gabe and Bear scale the vintage windmill without safety harnesses or any other type of protective measure.
Bear, who has a history of being extreme, was clearly in his element and took charge of the situation.
"I've never much liked construction, I like destruction," Bear explained.
He added that "I like heights, so I'm trying to take charge as much as possible because up high is kinda my territory."
However, he and Gabe can't appear to agree on a plan ... even when they're high up in the air! Watching from the ground, Birdy gripes that the two brothers need to figure out one plan and "get it done safely."
The New Season
The upcoming season of "Alaskan Bush People" is set to be unlike any of the previous, mainly because the Brown family has been expanding. Discovery has teased that the "ABP" babies and wives will be a big highlight this time around.
"The homestead has a different dynamic this season with new wives and babies joining the family. Brothers Gabe and Noah are settling down with significant others and beginning their journeys as parents in the wild. Noah moves forward with his plans to build a home and bring Rhain Alisha and Baby Elijah back to the mountain while Gabe and Raquel prepare for a Bush wedding and the first granddaughter. After meeting his ‘bush princess’, Bear begins dating which leads to big news of his own. With more mouths to feed than ever before and depleted resources, the Wolfpack is forced to create a much more self-sustainable mountain, with power and water connecting each individual dwellings."
Much of the season will no doubt revolve around Bear and the expected arrival of his son, as well as the on-again, off-again relationship with his baby mama Raiven.
Along with the joys, the new episodes of "Alaskan Bush People" will no doubt be filled with sorrow over the health of the patriarch of the family, Billy Brown. Billy has been hospitalized for months in Washington while dealing with an unknown illness, and the family has been rallying around him when not up in the mountains working on their homestead.
Billy celebrated his 67th birthday on Tuesday and Bear paid tribute to his father with a heartfelt message on Instagram.
"I’d like to wish a happy birthday to the most awesome dad ever! My dad! I have seen him be strong at times it seemed impossible! No matter what he always faces the storms and never blinks! He always stands for what he believes in! He taught me to true to myself and to others he taught me how to me a real man! Even if I sometimes fail he never has! I only hope I can be half as good as a dad as he is! Happy birthday Da! Your [sic] my hero!"
New episodes of "Alaskan Bush People" premiere Wednesday at 8 PM on Discovery.
