Disney has announced that the fifth season of the National Geographic series “Ice Road Rescue” will be coming to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 21st May. No international Disney+ release date has yet been announced.
The Ice Road heroes face another harsh winter and new challenges. To stay on top and survive, they must take on new partnerships and explore new territories. But it’s not easy when you’re used to being the boss and it’s time for the next generation to take on the battle of the ice roads.
New episodes include:
Who’s Boss? – When a loaded truck and trailer gets buried in a ditch, Bjoern calls Thord for help, but having two bosses on one job may not be the best idea for a speedy recovery.
