Disney has announced that the 21st season of the long-running National Geographic reality series, “Life Below Zero”, will be released on Disney+ in the United States on Wednesday, 29th November 2023. The latest season is currently being released weekly on the National Geographic channel.
This series follows the drama and hardships experienced by four Alaskan households in different corners of this merciless territory as they battle to make it through a long, dark, freezing winter. The huge US state of Alaska boasts some of the world’s most deadly weather, with temperatures regularly plummeting to a lethal -80 Fahrenheit, freezing exposed limbs in minutes.

Andy Bassich and Denise Becker seek new resources on the Yukon River. The Hailstones adapt to unnerving changes. Jessie Holmes recovers from a near-death accident.
