THE KILCHER CLAN RETURNS TO DISCOVERY FOR SEASON THREE OF "ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER"

(New York, NY) - "They make movies about it everywhere else but here it's still the real deal." - Otto Kilcher

The Kilchers survived another dark and frigid Alaskan winter and are shaking off cabin fever in all sorts of ways when Discovery's hit series ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER returns for a riveting third season on Sunday, October 6th at 9pm ET/PT.

Three generations of Kilchers proudly live off the land that Yule Kilcher homesteaded over 80 years ago after fleeing Switzerland in search of a free and simple life. He found that life outside of Homer, Alaska. The Kilcher family resides on their homestead consisting of over 640 acres of Alaskan wilderness. Yule and his wife Ruth taught their family (six girls and two boys) to be self-sufficient and to live solely off of the resources the land can provide. Yule's sons, Atz and Otto Kilcher, continue Yule's vision and traditions of a subsistence lifestyle and teach this way of life to their sons, Atz Lee, Atz's son, and Eivin, Otto's son, and their families.

Even as the (very) brief spring starts to thaw the winter snow over the homestead, the Kilchers have no time for celebration. The clan must take full advantage of the nice weather to immediately start restocking the food supply for themselves and their livestock and tackle necessary projects that ensure their survival in the cold winter weather. And this means using every bit of sunlight --- up to 22 hours in the summer --- to get important work accomplished!

This "simple life," however, is far from simple. Living off the grid without running water, they must hunt, gather, garden and raise livestock in order to provide enough food to ensure their family's survival. This year, the family has to conquer glacial rivers, face life and death on and off the homestead, fight against menacing predators, find new sources of food supplies, like octopus, as they also get some exciting family news that brings the Kilchers even closer together and continues their family's heritage.

The Kilchers must work as a strong, family unit to ensure their survival. This is their life on the last frontier.

ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER is produced by Discovery Studios. Daniel Soiseth and Grant Kahler are executive producers for Discovery Studios. Cameo Wallace is executive producer for Discovery.
