Series information and concept
Life Below Zero is a US documentary television series. It`s produced by Adjacent Productions and filmed in Alaska, as it follows the lives of six people living under the most extreme conditions imaginable above the Arctic Circle. The series was originally released on April 14, 2013, with the current seventh season having premiered on April 7, 2016 on National Geographic Channel.
Life in Alaska is a popular subject on television at the present time, and understandably so, as it offers the most spectacular scenery as a backdrop to any activities that might be the theme of the show. Alaskan austere climate conditions also add a dramatic element to everyday life. The characters of Life Below Zero chose the harshest of the harsh conditions – they live in the most remote northern areas of Alaska above the Arctic Circle and for the most part rely on themselves, and in some cases, their family members, to sustain themselves and, ultimately, to survive. From repairing a boat and obtaining running water to skinning fish and hunting, the trying life in six Alaskan homesteads is presented to the viewers.
Ratings and renewal possibilities
Emmy Award-winning show Life Below Zero has been extremely popular with the viewers throughout its long run, which it is not surprising in the US, a country with a definite soft spot for pioneer spirit. There hasn`t been any doubt as to the reality of the series, it`s a very straightforward take on real life. In 2014 it was National Geographic`s second highest-rated series, and since then hasn`t stopped fascinating the audience with its gritty down-to-earth stories of self-sufficiency that most of us can only dream of. There hasn`t been an official statement on the series` renewal, but it seems that it`s only a matter of time.
