The Last Alaskans is a documentary reality series on the Animal Planet that originally premiered in May of 2015. The first season of the series consisted of eight parts. Season Two of the reality series premiered on April 12th, 2016 and will air exclusively on The Discovery Channel this season. Season One of #LastAlaskans followed four families in the Alaskan frontier as they prepared for the upcoming winter ahead of them where they expected to face temperatures as much as fifty degrees below zero. This series really gives viewers an insider look into what it is like to live in isolated, desolate conditions “on the brink of extinction”.

All the way back in 1980, the U.S Government made a ban against new people moving in to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. The protected area is home to a lot of wildlife, a whole lot of terrain, and a few permitted cabins, which a few families live in. Most of the permits will run out over the course of the next century, and nobody will be permitted to live there anymore.

The first season of The Last Alaskan explored the day-to-day lives of the four families living on the refuge including Heimo and Edna Korth, Ray Lewis and his family, Bob Harte, and Tyler and Ashley Seldon.

During it’s first season, the show received the second highest of all of the ratings on the Animal Channeland it was quickly renewed for another season. People seem to love the intrigue of the unknown, the last frontier and the thrill of people trying to survive at the very depths of the most desolate and isolated places in society.

What can we expect to see in season two of the series? We are sure that there will be much focus on Heimo and Edna Gorth. Heimo is considered to be the “Godfather” of the north. When he was a teenager, he left Wisconsin to become a” mountain man” in Alaska and he hasn’t been back since. He and his wife raised four daughters in the Alaskan frontier. He comes with some pretty solid advice, “Keep you mind together and keep yourself alive”. Much of the focus on season one was on Heimo and his wife, and we’re anticipating that much of the focus will be on them and how they have faired in season two.

There is also a rumor that Bob Harte’s health is failing him and he may need to leave the refuge this season. We hear that Bob gets a visit from his ex-wife, Nancy, who he is still good friends with to talk about whether it is a good idea for him to continue living out in the rugged outback. Overall though, we hear Bob has come to terms with his situation, and has accepted that he will be moving back in to town to hopefully regain some of his physical and emotional strength.

Will the show be returning for a third season?

As of right now, we have yet to hear an official announcement from Discovery Channel as to whether or not the show will return for a third season. The reality series has been quite popular throughout the first two seasons. Featuring beautiful cinematography, aerial shots, and a glimpse of what life is really like in the rustic wild, fans have been very much intrigued by this show and we are definitely thinking the series will be returning for a third season.

What do you think will happen if the series is renewed? Will we still be able to see Bob Harte if he is back in town dealing with his failing health? Will have any

I hope that the show comes back for a third season, it is an awesome show. I initially thought why or how could people choose to live in such isolation, but after putting up with all the political junk and violence being reported every day in the lower 48, I would love to join them in that isolation, except I don’t like the cold much. Please bring the show back.

The Greatest Reality TV show ever created. First Class. No hype. No staged drama, thank God, it appeals to the intelligent. The ones that embrace art, cinematography, musical backdrop so sophisticated that you completely forget it there, except on the piano downbeat on the introduction. Right when it goes, The Last, boom Alaskans. Bravo you guys well done. We have watched each episode hundreds of times. It is the kind of programming that is so “beautifully melded” (is that a word :)) that we will even watch the commercials because we are in the Last Alaskan Zone so deep that we can’t fast forward our Tivo :). Is that great or what. tell that to the execs making the decisions. Please don’t rob us of this wonderful home run by “Half Yard”, man just knowing what the Producers and Camera folks have to endure in the Artic Ovens never knowing if a brown bear might come a lookin as it is time to add the last little bit of fat. Work with us, help us out here in Oklahoma when it is hundreds of degrees hot, we need our Heimo and Edna Fix. Ok, you guys. We love you and trust you will continue to rock n roll. Steve and Crystal out in Tulsa, Ok

The Last Alaskan’s shines with no narration and only the occasional question from a crew member. The use of drone cinematography and hauntingly beautiful music as the camera pans up and away, showing the majestic and beautiful landscape that is Alaska. The director has his finger on how these things create a powerful emotional feelings in his audience. I look forward to season three…

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy watching The Last Aladkans. I looked forward each week for the next episode. I sure hope it will be back for season 3 and on what station it will be on. I have told so many people about this show and they are hooked as well. It is a show that I can relate to being from upper Wisconsin. I have always wanted to see Alaska and this is my of being able to see it. Please bring the show back and let us know everyone is doing and how Bob is feeling. I pray for all of them each day. They somehow become a part of your life because the show is real and the producers respect the families and the photographers/crew do also. Thank you for bringing these families into our lives and a huge thank you to the families for allowing us to be a part of their lives as well.

I love this show, and hope we will see a third season. I feel for Bob, his whole way of life may be ending. I hope his health improves, and I think being near Nancy will help. I live sort of off the grid, and hate to think of the day I might have to leave it.

The last I’d heard his health was much better and he was traveling in the lower 48 seeing how the rest of us lived and enjoying himself. He also became a grandpa.

Best reality show ever. These Alaskan families have become part of the viewer’s family. We all need to know how Bob is fairing, and that the rest of the families are doing well. This program is completely addicting, for the people in it, the surroundings, and the beautiful music.

Your staff and writers have done an excellent job of presenting these individuals in such a way, that has engaged so many viewers in becoming interested, and caring what about happens to each of them.

“If” there is a credible reason for withholding an announcement of wether or NOT this program will or won’t continue, and for what reason, it really doesn’t do much for your viewers belief in what you tell us the outcome “might” be.

Continue to string us out instead of offering a plausible explanation, with a few facts thrown to support your news for us, and we will be fine.
Please do not under estimate the intelligence of your audience.
Be honest and forthright with the status of this program. We are typically open to other forms of TV entertainment.

Regards,

I am a hopelessly die hard fan. I feel that this show gives a great home meaning, a sense of belonging, sense of wonder. It is the best and only show that I tune into every week.
A good family show, that teaches value, family love, responsibility and focuses on what true love of nature and the true meaning of what we need. A need to reflect back on to real reality and what it was like to have to work for yourself. The music is soothing also. I really hope this show comes back, I want to know how Bob Harte is doping, and all the rest. I am so intrigued by how they all live and survive.

This show completely takes us to a gentler, kinder place then the everyday life we are living now. Its a breath of fresh air for an hour to really kick back and enjoy the beauty, the way they respect what they have and what they have to do to survive. I hope to see this show for a very long time.

I absolutely love this show! I was very intrigued from the beginning! I once lived in Aklavik, NWT and always wondered what it would be like if I truly “bushed myself”! Now I know what I’m truly missing (and didn’t have the guts to do at the time!). I respect the core values and am always asking my husband if he’s seen ads for the next season (3).

PLEASE, producers, bring it back!!!
