Show Synopsis

Rejoin the icy adventures of Life Below Zero’s resilient characters as the Emmy Award-Winning show returns to Alaska to chart their day-to-day lives in one of the toughest areas of the world. It is a time for looking ahead to the future and, for most of our characters that usually means essential preparation and food gathering so they can survive the punishing winter ahead.

However, for Sue, it is about realizing that the limitations of her ageing body could mean moving to a less challenging home. Dark winter gives Glenn a unique chance to test his primitive skills in wilderness, while Jesse pushes himself and his star dog team to the limit as they prepare to compete in the world’s largest dog race, covering a distance of over 1,600 kilometers.
