The holidays are definitely upon us as Discovery Channel has given a gift to its viewers -- more "Alaskan Bush People!" The network announced Wednesday that the new season of the reality series is set to kick off next month, and revealed some of the hardships and milestones that could prove to be the most difficult season yet for the Brown family.
According to a release from Discovery:
"The Brown family has been working tirelessly to ready North Star Ranch over the past year, embarking on a mission to build infrastructure and finally realize their legacy on the mountain. This season, spring descends on North Star Ranch, as the patriarch and matriarch of the clan, Billy and Ami, push the next generation of the Wolfpack, Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird and Rain to strengthen their own footholds on the mountain to create a bigger, better, more sustainable version of Browntown. The Brown family’s quest to achieve their dream of a fully self-contained village is on the line."
It's tough to keep track of the ever-growing Brown family, especially with the news of another incoming baby as Bear Brown and Raiven revealed they will be having a boy!
Discovery says, "The homestead has a different dynamic this season with new wives and babies joining the family."
Along with brothers Gabe and Noah settling down with their new wives, and beginning their journeys as parents, Noah is also moving 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."
Because of all the incoming family members, Discovery says the Wolfpack was forced to create a "self-sustainable mountain, with power and water connecting each individual dwellings.
The new season will also chronicle the on-again-off-again relationship between Bear and Raiven, whom he describes as his "Bush Princess."
Unfortunately, the celebrations for the Brown family are also met with sadness and worry as the patriarch is given bad news.
"Father Billy is given a grave prognosis by doctors – his days may be numbered continuing his lifestyle. Thumbing his nose at society, it's live free or die as Billy doubles down on the dream; and the family comes together in a final frenzy before winter to build Billy, Ami, and the new mini-wolfpacks a communal home in the middle of the ranch."
It has been made very clear that "every member of the Wolfpack must make valuable contributions to the homestead in order for the family to survive and thrive on the mountain."
