Life Below Zero: Next Generation season three begins Monday, as does a new season of Life Below Zero, and then both shows move to their normal Tuesday nights on National Geographic Channel.
The third season of LBZ:NG—which follows people “who’ve tried contemporary life and rejected it in favor of freedom in the brutal Alaskan wilderness,” according to NatGeo—will introduce some new cast members, while one person who’s been in the first two seasons won’t be part of the cast.
It’ll air Tuesdays at 9 p.m .ET, following its debut on Labor Day, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, following Life Below Zero’s premiere.
Season three opens with Johnny Rolfe searching for caribu by following wolf tracks in the snow and -57 degree Fahrenheit. “There’s something in my DNA—something within me that couldn’t rest until it got to the wilderness. I belong in nature; I don’t belong in the city,” he says.
Watch the first three minutes of the new season here to see what he discovers in the snow—and to see some of the Life Below Zero franchise’s signature cinematography:
