THE KILCHER FAMILY RETURNS TO DISCOVERY FOR AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF "ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER" PREMIERING SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1

(Los Angeles) - For eighty years, the Kilcher family has flourished in the deep Alaskan wilderness, but with chronic damage to the homestead, the family legacy is jeopardized, and the Kilchers embark on their greatest challenge yet: a complete homestead overhaul. Will the Kilchers be able to reconstruct and ensure the homestead's survival, or will their way of life come to an end? The new season of ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER premieres Sunday, October 1 at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

This season, in an exciting first, Alaska: The Last Frontier goes LIVE! Each week, for 2 wild minutes, fans get direct live access to their favorite Kilchers- and the opportunity to ask them anything, in a fast-paced, off-the-cuff, completely unscripted, question and answer session. For years, viewers have invited the Kilchers into their living rooms, like family. Now, they can enter the Kilchers' living room- virtually.

There will be plenty to talk about, because, to guarantee a successful overhaul, the family will need to utilize every piece of heavy machinery in their arsenal to repair age-old structures, improve the family's water system, revamp fences, construct new buildings, and protect the animals. But first they must dig out from the worst snowstorm in four years. This season brings bigger builds and dangerous missions that could shape the future of the homestead forever.

Singer-songwriter Jewel returns to the homestead and gets her hands dirty - felling trees and wrangling cattle with her father and brother. The Kilchers will face life-changing challenges that test family relationships while forcing them to think on their feet and test their limits.

While the overhaul is the biggest challenge the Kilchers face this season, it certainly isn't the only challenge. The Kilchers band together and venture into the wilderness on a mission to rescue a marooned tractor that's crucial to finishing Shane and Kelli's long overdue cabin build on the homestead. Meanwhile, Otto and Jane, along with the help of their homesteading neighbors, travel over 140 miles to the distant shores of Kodiak Island for what could possibly be the most dangerous mission in the homestead's history... relocating a herd of wild buffalo by boat. Will the Kilchers finally be pushed to their limits or will they come together to ensure the family's legacy lives on for future generations?

ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER is produced for Discovery Channel by Discovery Studios. For Discovery Studios, Daniel Soiseth and Vincent Ueber are executive producers and Dustin Rubin is co-executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Matt Vafiadis is executive producer.
