"Life Below Zero"
Premieres Tuesday, September 18 at 9 PM ET

          Across the remote and isolated corners of Alaska, the light is fading, the temperatures are dropping, the land is freezing and winter is looming. Here in the Arctic, winter is no wonderland, but for some of its residents it’s the preferred way of life. It’s a place where the only chance of survival is to depend on your primitive skills. Life Below Zero’s fall season will build to a celebration of the 100th episode milestone with a full-day marathon featuring the most popular episodes, airing on Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
 
          The daring and creative crew work tirelessly behind the scenes to capture the lifestyles our tough Alaskans live, putting themselves through the most daunting and challenging situations. They’ve shot the series in temperatures as low as minus 40 F, and often carry backpacks of batteries that weigh more than 100 pounds. The crew masterminded a technique, powered by solar energy, that withstood the harsh climate to record a 17-day long time lapse. In the winter months they may see a few hours of twilight — no full sun — each day.
