Cole Sturgis On Life Below Zero

The popular spin-off Life Below Zero: Next Generation, which will also debut its fourth season, was born from the long-running blockbuster series, which has won eight Emmy Awards. The new season of Life Below Zero features compelling new tales of survival and resiliency in the face of Alaska’s harsh winter conditions.
While Sue Aikens’ search for caribou will be the main focus of Life Below Zero, the Next Generation ensemble is dealing with a totally different issue as dark winter approaches Alaska. This occurs during the December winter solstice when the outside light is almost nonexistent for two months. Because Alaska is so far north, where the sun rarely rises over the horizon due to its proximity to the pole, this is what occurs there.
The kids of Ricko DeWilde actively participate in their way of life. As he educates his kids about enduring customs and survival skills, DeWilde uses ravens to track Alaskan blackfish. The Hailstones adjust to unsettling changes, Andy Bassich and Denise Becker look for fresh resources on the Yukon River, and Jessie Holmes works to recuperate from a near-fatal injury.
The next generation pushes boundaries in the backcountry as the bleak winter approaches in Life Below Zero: The Next Generation. Using fortitude, Johnny Rolfe conquers the Brooks Range. The Roaches search for opportunities in new territory. In Hayes Valley, Mario and Clare pick up survival skills. On the Kenai coast, the Sarvelas contend with unusual circumstances.
Their two-story floating residence in Thorne Bay, Alaska, requires a lot of maintenance. They are surrounded by forests and water on Prince Wales Island, where there are no passing traffic. Cole said: “If you do not do the maintenance, nature will reclaim everything that was taken from it.” They also own a boat which Cole regularly goes out on to collect their daily food.
