Get ready for some spine-chilling thrill and set your seat in front of your TV as Nat Geo is coming with the 11th season of Life Below Zero. Eight-episode season 10 aired earlier this year, and now the docu-series has returned with 12 episodes which will air on Tuesdays this fall from September 25 at 9 pm.
Back with New Season
In this new season, the show will reach its 100th episode, which will be airing on January 1, 2019. This season the production crew struggled to document the lives of Alaskans at the extreme temperature of minus 40 F. The cast and crew are at their best for this season too and even carried batteries weighing more than 100 pounds. In the hair-raising temperature where most of the days in winter goes with just a few hours of twilight, the crew masterminded the use of solar energy. But, the technique couldn’t survive the harsh climate for more than 17 days.
Since it premiered on May 19, 2013, the show has earned several awards and nominations including two Emmy nominations for the ninth season. It won Emmy for Outstanding Picture Editing for an Unstructured Reality Program in 2017 and Outstanding Cinematography for a Reality Program in 2016.
The original cast members Sue Aikens, Hailstones, Jessie Holmes, Andy Bassich, and Glenn Villeneuve are returning for the new season. The new addition to the show’s cast will be Ricko DeWilde, who was born and raised in Alaska. A family man with five children, Ricko has been living away from the civilization for nearly two decades with the motto “Every day, you work to survive.”
So, are you ready to enjoy the marathon of episodes of Life Below Zero?
