Although the status of Alaskan Bush People Season 6 is pretty controversial, speculations have already begun to surface about the seventh season. There is a buzz that Discovery has plans to wrap the reality show after Season 7. Is the Brown family going to bid goodbye soon?
There have been a number of Alaskan Bush People Season 6 cancellation rumors swirling around lately. However, if some of the theories are to be believed, Alaskan Bush People is being renewed for Season 7. Fans who have been clamoring for the show finally have some real good reason to rejoice.
But wait there is a catch! The speculations also suggest that there is high chance that Alaskan Bush People Season 7 will be the final season of the Discovery series.
Is it due to the poor viewership rating in the last season?
Recent poor ratings are apparently sinking the show. It lost a huge number of its viewership during the premiere of the fifth season. Almost a million more dropped off the wagon by the time the Season 5 finale aired.
Things started to go downhill after Billy Brown was found guilty of forgery. According to a relevant publication, the Brown family allegedly lied and applied for funds they weren’t qualified for. The forgery was employed to receive Permanent Fund dividend checks from the state. Billy and son Josh pleaded guilty to the offense and were each sentenced to 30 days in jail. The family was ordered to pay $21,000 [roughly around A$ 28,000] in restitution to the state of Alaska.
Matt Brown’s alcohol addiction has also resulted in a huge drop in show’s ratings. Matt was suffering from alcoholism as seen in Season 5. Later on, he was sent to rehab for treatment. His alcohol addiction somewhat showed that the family is pretty much aware of the modern world, which is contradictory to how the show was being described, reported MNG. Many sources revealed that the network might axe the 33-year-old star to keep the show going.
Meanwhile, a few unverified sources revealed that Alaskan Bush Season 7 will be the last for the Brown family. Since there are a lot of controversies involving the credibility of Alaskan Bush People, the network might consider bidding a final goodbye to this bushy pack as soon as possible.
Do you still think the show must continue with many more seasons in coming day?
