"Alaskan Bush People"
Friday, May 29 at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel
America’s new favorite family, The Browns, are back when "Alaskan Bush People" returns to Discovery Channel on May 29th at 9PM ET/PT. Last Season, we were introduced to Billy Brown, his wife Ami and their seven grown children – five boys and two girls – who were born and raised in the wilds of Alaska. The Browns, a modern-day Waltons family, live so remotely they’ve developed their own accent and way of doing things. With the series return and their dream home finally finished, will they be able to truly settle down and build a life here?
This season the Browns look to the future and, for this self-proclaimed wolf pack, that means growing their clan. With the sons in their 20s and 30s, they’re eager to meet “the one” and start families of their own. To grow the Brown family, Ami takes it upon herself to hire a local matchmaker. As the boys date, they also work with the family to secure consistent food sources and build out the homestead, including a “bush comfort” - a homemade clothes dryer constructed from an oil drum and old metal fencing and heated by an open fire.
In midst of all of this, the family faces enormous personal challenges when Ami is forced to seek medical attention in town. With the stakes higher than ever and unexpected costs piling up, the family gambles on a new idea they hope will secure their future – launching a business that will lead the family deeper into the bush than they ever imagined.
