CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DOCUSERIES "THE LAST ALASKANS" RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL

Ten-Part Series Kicks off Wednesday, March 22 at 9 PM ET/PT

(Los Angeles) - Returning for a third season with more grit and heart than ever before, THE LAST ALASKANS continues to raise the bar for Alaskan life depicted on television. Showcasing authentic, intimate stories and cinematic visuals of different families struggling to survive in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, THE LAST ALASKANS returns to the untouched wilderness when it premieres Wednesday, March 22, at 9 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel.

In 1980, the US government banned new human occupation in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a protected area home to thousands of native animals and pristine terrain. Currently, only a handful of families spread across seven cabins are permitted to remain in the refuge. Within less than 100 years, all remaining permits will reach expiration, and there will be no human presence left.

This season, as the Artic Refuge's final permit holders seek prosperity in a hungry land, a new generation steps into this age-old way of life. Eager young trappers, Tyler and Ashley Selden, and Charlie Jagow fully commit to a life among North America's most isolated, modern day pioneers. Aside from the day-to-day challenges, Tyler and Ashley face another surprise this season - welcoming their first child. Meanwhile, Bob Harte faces his mortality and flees the Alaskan winter and after 40 years in the bush, the legendary Heimo Korth yearns to pass the torch to his daughter Krin. In an unexpected twist, both new and old generations must now learn how to survive a winter with much lighter snowfall than past. The families have always relied on heavy snow for their mobility to trap. Without solid snow fall, dog sleds and snow machines are of no use. This winter's wolf packs move closer to the cabins, making trapping by foot all the more perilous. With pressure on their livelihood like never before, will The Last Alaskans overcome the tribulations that lie ahead this winter or will the homestead and its memories simply return to the wilderness?

THE LAST ALASKANS is produced for Discovery Channel by Half Yard Productions. Sean Gallagher, Abby Greensfelder, and John Jones are the executive producers for Half Yard Productions. For Discovery Channel, Joe Schneier, David Freed and Mitchell Rosenbaum are executive producers, and Emily Baustien is the associate producer. The series was developed by Animal Planet's Kurt Tondorf. To learn more, go to www.discovery.com, on Facebook at Facebook.com/discovery and on Twitter @Discovery.
