ABOUT Life Below Zero:
Life Below Zero gives viewers chills as it follows the extreme lifestyles of tough residents living off the grid in Alaska. With temperatures colder than minus 50 degrees, they also face whiteout snowstorms, unpredictable frozen terrain and man-eating carnivores in one of the most isolated regions in the world. As Mother Nature becomes more erratic, survival in Alaska is increasingly uncertain as residents continue to fight to keep their traditions alive.
To continue the adventure of the fan-favorite series Life Below Zero, is the spin-off series, Life Below Zero: Next Generation, which premiered in the fall, and follows all-new Alaskans who tried contemporary life and rejected it in favor of freedom in the Alaskan wilderness. NEW episodes will air weekly starting on Tuesday, January 19 at 8/7c — following the season finale of Life Below Zero on Tuesday, January 12 at 8/7c.
The Life Below Zero franchise is produced by the BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production unit for National Geographic.
