During this weeks Disney Upfront event, National Geographic Content President Courteney Monroe announced that Life Below Zero will be returning for another season.

It was also announced that the spin-off series “Life Below Zero: Next Generation” will return for a second season and “Life Below Zero: Port Protection Alaska”, will also be returning for a fourth season.

The common theme in LIFE BELOW ZERO and PORT PROTECTION, ALASKA is people who have left traditional society behind. They have chosen a different life, with varying degrees of danger and challenges, in their remote regions of Alaska. In LIFE BELOW ZERO: NEXT GENERATION, an all-new cast has abandoned contemporary life in favor of freedom in the brutal Alaskan wilderness. They speak to the growing dissatisfaction the current generation has with technology and convenience, which is ubiquitous in modern life.


Cameras capture the cast members as they rush to prepare for and survive the frozen months of winter to the spring thaw.

Executive Producers are Travis Shakespeare and Joseph Litzinger for BBC Studios.


All of these series will be returning during the 2021/22 season on the National Geographic channel. Previous seasons of these shows are available on Disney+ in the United States, though internationally availability is different.

Are you excited to see more “Life Below Zero” episodes coming soon?

    Why do you guys shove LBZ down our throat when EVER I Google LBZ? I am absolutely 💯 not a fan of next gen. I don't watch it ever and because it is ALWAYS the 1st thing I'm forced to try to get to LBZ ORIGINAL I see that it's only quality Mike Manzo is gone 🤦🏼‍♀️ you had so many choices...

      Agree. LOVE Port Protection but can’t find it on Nat Geo on TV....where can I watch it?

    If mike manzo is gone I will NEVER watch LBZ NG. I LOVE LBZ and Port Protection. Have watched since season 1. But not NG. Why do the people in charge make such unwise decisions. We know what’s good and what’s not!! From the comments very few people like NG. But they keep showing it thinking we’re going to change our minds or what??!!! Not gonna happen.

    Absolutely love these shows as well as Last Alaskans… This once a way of life that the generation would never ever be able to make it. Have been to Canada many, many time and would love to live this life…
