Discovery Channel's Alaskan Bush People is a docudrama-style reality television series that follows the lives of the Brown family, who attempts to survive in the wilderness, detached from modern society.

The show first aired on May 6, 2014, and was filmed near Hoonah, Alaska, and Chichagof Island. The later seasons were filmed in Okanogan County, Washington.

But in February 2020, the show's fans called for the show to be canceled in the wake of cast Bear Brown's drug consumption case.

Fans Wanted the Show to Be Canceled

The stated situation arose after Bear's girlfriend, Raiven Adams, with whom the cast member shares a young son, reportedly accused him of drug abuse.

She also revealed that he had threatened to retaliate if she took the allegations public.

However, she came forward with the truth, because of which she was even granted a temporary restraining order against him.

Following the news, fans started backlashing the show and called the show to be called off.

"I mean you can tell the whole family is a little off and their whole fake I'm living in the wilderness [expletive] is ridiculous. This show should be canceled if it isn't already," someone wrote on Facebook.

Another added on Twitter, "I see Bear Brown from Alaskan Bush People has a protective order against him for being abusive to his pregnant ex. Allegedly doing drugs a lot The family r trouble and should not be on TV nasty."

As of now, Bear and Raiven are happily married and living together with their one-year-old son, River.

Is Alaskan Bush People Canceled?

When the controversy caught fire, Alaskan Bush People wasn't airing with no announcement on the 12th season.

The recent episode [at the time] was premiered on January 29, 2020, which was the last episode of Season 11.

However, despite the backlash, the show didn't go down, as it eventually returned back to television with Season 12 on August 23, 2020.

The 12th season was aired for eight episodes until October 11, 2020.

Following Season 12, the show and especially the Brown family were saddened by the demise of the late patriarch Billy Brown.

As per People, Billy died on February 7, 2021, after suffering a seizure at the age of 68.

Hence, the Brown family tried to pay homage to the old man in the Season 13 of the reality television series.

In a first look at the season, Billy's wife Ami Brown, daughters Rain and Snowbird, and sons Bear, Matt, Bam Bam, Gabe, and Noah reflected on his legacy.

"Dad always told us one day we'd have to carry on without him," Bam Bam said. "But we weren't ready for him to go."

"Looking back, Dad knew his time in this world was coming to an end, and we can see now, he was laying out a plan for us, preparing us to achieve the vision," daughter Snowbird similarly added. "If only we understood his plan sooner."

The 13th season of the show seemingly premiered on September 19, 2021, on Discovery. The season ended after 14 episodes on November 28.

The upcoming season — Season 14 — is yet to be announced.
