The news was announced on January 17, 2020, at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena. According to Nat Geo, “new individuals who, in a brave move, recently left their traditional lifestyle behind to face a challenging new world off the grid in the wilds of Alaska.”
The docuseries has been renewed for two more seasons, whereas the previously existing spinoff series, Life Below Zero: Port Protection, has been renewed for one.
The common element between the three series is that all the cast members have chosen cast off the burden of modern society and the dangers of the wild.
According to the Network’s description, the new spinoff series, Life Below Zero: Next Generation’s all-new cast members have tried contemporary life and rejected it in favor of a life of freedom in the brutal Alaskan wilderness. The crew will capture the cast members as they rush to prepare for and survive the cold months of winter to the spring thaw.
The eight-part spinoff series will premiere in 2021.
