Follow the further icy adventures of Life Below Zero’s resilient characters as the series charts their day-to-day lives in Alaska. In an increasingly unpredictable Arctic climate, they must quickly adapt to the changing landscape in their quest for freedom and survival.

Sue is preparing herself for an increasingly uncertain future, Jessie and his dog team are getting ready for their second 1,000 mile Iditarod sled race, and unusual weather conditions are hampering the Hailstones’ harvest of vital resources. Andy continues to teach Denise essential bush survival skills, and Ricko shows his children the importance of carrying on the Athabaskan way of life.
