TUNE INTO YUKON MEN: WILD LIVES FOR A SNEAK PEAK OF THE NEW SEASON
ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 26 at 9 PM ET/PT
(New York, NY) Just 60 miles from the Arctic Circle lies a town on the edge of civilization: Tanana, Alaska. A frozen village of 200 people at the junction of two powerful rivers, with no roads in or out, where wolves howling through the frigid night air remind the residents how isolated they really are. Discovery Channel's thrilling series YUKON MEN is back Tuesday, September 2 at 9 PM ET/PT and returns to Tanana, Alaska as its people face new challenges and threats.
After a dark and cold Alaskan winter, the Yukon Men emerge to find themselves under siege: a new road threatens to open the town to the outside world, dwindling resources and government bans challenge their hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and a double homicide shakes them to their core.
As the men come together to face these new obstacles, each is also challenged on a personal level. Stan Zurray, now has to figure out how one “retires” out here and decides to gamble on an old mine deep in the bush. His son Joey, who has long heard the tall tales of his father, must decide if he’ll follow in his footsteps or blaze a new path. Charlie Wright, who’s been the backbone of the town, finds himself in a turf war and looks for higher ground to escape those who’ll “rape and pillage” the town when the road is paved.
At the end of the day, each man will be pushed to their limit. Pushed to decide: How far they will to go to live free? To be a Yukon Man?
In the lead up to the new season, airing Tuesday, August 26th at 9 PM ET/PT, YUKON MEN: WILD LIVES is packed with sneak peaks of the coming season, previewing the big changes and challenges the men face this year, one of which, will alter their lives forever. The Yukon Men will also reveal new and shocking details about the struggles to survive in the Alaskan wilderness – both on and off camera.
YUKON MEN is produced for Discovery Channel by Paper Route where Alan LaGarde and Brian O’Toole are Executive Producers. Carter Figueroa is Executive Producer and Lisbeth Lozano is Associate Producer for Discovery Channel.
