Exclusive: The Last Alaskans will return for a fourth season that will air late this year, and original cast member Bob Harte’s death will be part of the new season.

Harte died from cancer on July 22, 2017, about two months after season three concluded airing, but while season four was in production. He was 66.

The exceptional reality series—which started on Animal Planet before moving to Discovery—will return in the fourth quarter of this year, a Discovery Channel representative told me when I asked about the show’s future.

Season three aired in the spring of 2017, and focused on six people: Heimo and Edna Korth, Tyler and Ashley Selden, Charlie Jagow, and Bob Harte, who talked about his illness.

They’ll all be on season four, too.

Season three did not feature the Lewis family, Ray and Cindy Lewis, plus Emma, Sarah, and Molly, who’d appeared on the first two seasons.

While The Last Alaskans isn’t available on DVD, episodes are available on Amazon and on iTunes, and often repeat on television.
