Life Below Zero (styled as Life Below Zero° on the title card) is a documentary television series which illustrates the daily and seasonal activities of subsistence hunters as they make their living in remote areas of Alaska. Produced by BBC Worldwide, the show airs on National Geographic.

On August 25, 2020, it was announced that the fourteenth season will premiere on September 7, 2020.[2]


The show follows people who live in the remote areas of Alaska, trying to survive in the below-zero conditions, demonstrating their everyday struggles as they hunt and depend only on themselves and survive using the resources they have.[3][4]

Main characters

  • Sue Aikens – a 57-year-old (7/1/63) woman and the sole resident of the Kavik river camp in Northern Alaska. The camp is located directly adjacent to the Kavik River, 197 miles North of the Arctic Circle. Her motto is "If it hurts, don't think about it."[5]
  • Chip and Agnes Hailstone – live with their seven children on the Kobuk River in Noorvik 19 miles North of the Arctic Circle. Chip lived in Kalispell, Montana before moving to Alaska. Agnes is Native Alaskan, an Inupiaq born in Noorvik and is the one member of the cast who has spent their entire life in Alaska, as well as the longest. She has family ties to the land that extend thousands of years and knowledge that has been passed down from generation to generation. Although Agnes is more the focus of the Hailstones segments, her whole family comes to the screen with her.[6]
  • Glenn Villeneuve – moved from Burlington, Vermont to Alaska in 1999. He lives alone in Chandalar 200 miles north of Fairbanks, Alaska and 65 miles North of the Arctic Circle.[7]
  • Jessie Holmes – lives in Nenana, Alaska where he is a fisherman, hunter and dogsled racer living alone with his 40 sleddogs.[8]
  • Andy Bassich – lives on the Yukon River[9] near Eagle, Alaska with his 25 sled dogs. He came to Alaska after moving from Washington D.C. with his wife Kate Bassich. Andy and Kate divorced in 2016. Andy's girlfriend, Denise, has now joined him at his homestead.
  • Erik Salitan – A young man, well-versed in wilderness living, who lives 67 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Wiseman, Alaska.[10]
  • Ricko DeWilde - An Alaskan Athabaskan who moves into his family's remote abandoned cabin near Huslia, Alaska. Later, he has his young children visit to begin teaching them about subsistence living.


The show premiered on Sunday night.[1] It switched to Tuesday night beginning in Season 4.[11] It currently shows on Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
