          For more than 80 years, Yule Kilchers homestead legacy has survived in the Alaskan wilderness on perseverance and commitment of the family. This past year, the Kilchers endured severe weather conditions, damage to the homestead and unexpected setbacks, but with spring around the corner, the family is gearing up for new opportunities and fresh adventures.  
 
          After months of darkness, spring and its brighter days are a welcome change on the homestead. The Kilcher family celebrates the warmer weather by exploring new, remote Alaskan terrains to source different game and learn new homesteading skills. After a long winter, the Kilchers need to restock their meat supply, so Jane and Atz Lee venture to Adak Island in search of caribou while Otto and Eivin head to Red Mountain for fresh game.
 
          The start of the season brings the return of familiar faces to the homestead – Levi, Otto’s oldest son and Eve’s childhood friend, Tela return in hopes of passing their homestead upbringing on to their children. Singer-songwriter Jewel also returns home so her son Kase can learn valuable skills in the wild from his grandfather.
 
          Pursuing his father’s pioneer spirit, Atz Sr. embarks on one of his biggest challenges – building the family’s first floating homestead. He finds an abandoned barge and sets out to make it an extensive floating homestead that he and the family can use to travel. Also, for the first time in the homestead’s history, Otto and Charlotte’s livestock face mysterious predator attacks. Will the Kilchers continue to thrive in the deep Alaskan wilderness, or will unpredictable setbacks hinder the Kilchers homestead legacy?
