In 2013, NatGeo debuted the first season of Life Below Zero. There have been multiple spinoff series based on viewers’ enjoyment of watching hunters in remote areas of Alaska. Fans are now wondering if Life Below Zero: First Alaskans will return for a second season.
The show follows a new group of Alaskan Natives as they brave harsh temperatures, live off the land, and make money through unexpected ventures.
Will ‘Life Below Zero: First Alaskans’ have a Season 2?
On May 30, 2022, NatGeo premiered Life Below Zero: First Alaskans, which was immediately embraced by viewers. The network, however, announced plans for a second season just days before the show’s premiere.
The “resilience and spirit of the individuals who survive and thrive in one of the harshest and most beautiful environments in the world,” according to Alan Eyres, senior vice president of production and development for National Geographic, is at the heart of the series, according to Deadline.

It’s both intense аnd fun to be in Sue’s compаny.”
