Discovery's 'Alaska: The Last Frontier' Sets Return Date (Exclusive)
Discovery Channel has set a date for the midseason premiere of Alaska: The Last Frontier.
The series, which centers on singer Jewel's family, will return for the second half of its second season with four new episodes starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, May 19.
In the midseason premiere, it's late fall on the Kilchers' homestead. Half the herd returns early from the summer grazing grounds, so the Kilchers drive the rest of the herd home across icy rivers.
The family then rushes to finish their other winter prep work but still is able to make time for a fun beach-scavenged gourmet picnic.
Jewel sings the series' theme song, which was written by Atz, her father, who also stars in the show.
Watch a clip from the first new episode of the show, which is exclusive to The Hollywood Reporter, above.
