The hit reality show, “Alaskan Bush People,” is set to return for season 4 next month. With legal drama and health issues facing the Brown family, viewers will see how they deal with the challenges ahead.
According to People magazine, the Discovery Channel released a statement regarding the show’s return.
At the conclusion of season 3, the “Alaskan Bush People” cast moved to the “the lower 48” to seek medical treatment for Bill. The Brown family begins season 4 by moving forward to rebuild their family property, “Browntown.”
“However, a dark cloud is casting a shadow over what should be a happy homecoming to the freedom of the bush,” reads the statement.
People confirms that the term “black cloud” references the legal woes facing Billy and Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown. The father and son duo will report to jail on April 15 for their 30-day sentence after pleading guilty to lying about their residency when they accepted annual oil revenue checks given specifically to Alaskan residents. At the time they were living out of the state.
Billy and Josh were also sentenced to 40 hours community service and were slapped with a fine. In exchange, all charges against the rest of the family were dropped.
Fox News reports that this statement was released by Discovery regarding the new season of “Alaskan Bush People”:
“The Browns are back when ‘Alaskan Bush People’ returns to Discovery Channel on May 6th at 9 p.m. ET/PT … As the outside world continues to encroach on their way of the life, the Brown family’s faith is tested. The wolfpack must look to the future and reexamine their lives and mend wounds from their past, if they are to keep the old bush ways from dying out forever.”
