About the show

Wild West Alaska is a reality series airing on Animal Planet since January 13, 2013. It`s produced by Jupiter Entertainment and executive produced by Matt Sprouse, Stephen Land and Ben Shank, with Rich Hansil, Hank Stapleton and Paul Donvito co-executive producing.

The series is one in a slew of Alaska-related shows currently trending on TV. Wild West Alaska`s concept is nothing particularly complicated – the show is centered around owner Jim West and his crew at Wild West Guns shop. It has to be mentioned that it`s not just any shop, but the largest and most successful weapon store in the state. Weapons are an integral part of the off-grid lifestyle that`s so prevalent in Alaska, and Wild West Guns is a place to come for any weapon format. The crew works on the guns in the shop, the cast is not overdramatic and very watchable, sometimes the guns were taken out into the Alaskan wilderness to be used.

Current season and renewal possibilities

There was some criticism from the viewers of the producers` attempts in the recent series to steer away from the natural, unforced manner that the show had, and the tendency to introduce some scripted elements that are completely inappropriate for the people portrayed and the particular setting and format of the show. The most recent episode of Wild West Alaska, which aired on January 21, 2016, scored 0.681 million viewers (0.1 in P18-49). Will this be enough to warrant a renewal? We have to wait and see whether the network finds the numbers high enough, as in the very beginning of its screen life the show was seen by a significantly larger audience – approximately 1 million viewers.
