Fans adored Kate Rorke, ex-wife of Andy Bassich from Life Below Zero, from her very first appearance in the reality show in 2013. While we catch most of the cast of the show in the new season, we will not see Kate, which has left her fans somehow in dismay.

What is Kate doing now?

Not originally from Alaska, Kate was married to co-star Andy when she first appeared in the show. The pair first met in a vacation, and after short budding romance, Kate decided to move up north to be with Andy. Kate and Andy took their relationship to the next level by tying the knot shortly after. But, sadly, their marriage didn’t last as they decided to part ways in 2015. Their divorce was finalized the following year.

Behind the Scene Stories of Life Below Zero you didn’t know

After the divorce, she moved away from Alaska, which eventually ended her time in the National Geography series. Later, she shared about the reason behind the split, opening about the abusive nature of Andy. Though she is away from the limelight, she has been in touch with her fans via Facebook, where she updates about her day-to-day life in Newfoundland in Canada.

More recently, she returned from her vacation in the Caribbean. Furthermore, she even shared a reunion picture with her brother, Tolson in 16 years. Even after three years of her departure from the show, her followers are still looking forward to seeing more of her in the show, which seems beyond the bounds of possibility. While she is rejoicing her life in Canada, Andy is living with his dog in Alaska. More recently, he lost his beloved dog, Iceberg.
