by Quentin Blount

Fans of the popular Discovery Channel show, Alaskan Bush People, got exactly what they have been waiting for on Friday. And that is the premiere date for the new season of the show.

There have been plenty of questions out there about the future of Alaskan Bush People. And rightfully so. After Billy Brown, the beloved patriarch of the family, passed away, many fans were worried that the show might not continue. However, the cast and crew will be back for season 13. The new season will premiere on Sunday, September 19, at 8 p.m. on Discovery Channel and Discovery Plus.

The family will be dedicating the new season of Alaskan Bush People to the late Billy Brown.

Billy passed away back on February 7 after suffering a seizure at his home. He was 68 at the time of his death.

First Look at Season 13 of ‘Alaskan Bush People’

And in a first look at the newest season of the show, Billy’s family — wife Ami Brown, sons Bear, Matt, Bam Bam, Gabe, and Noah, and daughters, Rain and Snowbird talk about the legacy he left behind.

“Dad always told us one day we’d have to carry on without him,” Bam Bam begins an official trailer on the Alaskan Bush People Instagram account. “But we weren’t ready for him to go.”

The video then cuts to an emotional Gabriel as he calls 911. The 31-year-old can be heard saying, “This is Gabriel Brown — just send an ambulance.”

“New Season Dedicated to Billy Brown | Alaskan Bush People,” the caption reads. “The Browns rise from the ashes of a wildfire to face the loss of their beloved patriarch Billy Brown on a new season of #AlaskanBushPeople. Watch the new season, which the family has dedicated to Billy, when it premieres on @discovery and @discoveryplus on September 19. Learn more at Discovery.com/goodbyebilly.”

Fans of the show are understandably excited for the new season. But it will no doubt be a bittersweet feeling watching the Alaskan Bush People without the one and only Billy Brown.

“I love the fact that it’s coming back on but it’s going to be a hard watch,” one person wrote in the comments.

Snowbird Brown Hears the ‘Call of Alaska’

Billy Brown always told his family that one day they would have to carry on his legacy without him. But that day came way too soon. Especially, for his 26-year-old daughter, Snowbird.

“I find myself hearing the call of Alaska,” she says in the clip. “It’s hard answering, do I want to move back? There’s still a part of me that feels really lost.”

Her mom then advises her, “You have to go where the road calls you.”

Again, season 13 of Alaskan Bush People will premiere on Sunday, September 19, on Discovery and Discovery Plus.
