Alaskan Bush People Season 7 is reportedly done with filming, and the production studio, Park Slope Productions, is also reportedly “packing up Browntown,” leaving fans to ask if the Brown family will ever return to the Alaskan Bush.
The upcoming season of Alaskan Bush People was recently announced by the show’s network. The Discovery Channel announced via a press release—that’s published in full on AllYourScreens— and also via social media, that Season 7 of Alaskan Bush People is set to air on Wednesday, June 14.
Loyal fans of Alaskan Bush People have been anxiously waiting for the Season 7 release date ever since the Discovery Channel announced on March 28, also via a newsroom press release, that the long-running reality TV series was returning in 2017-2018 as part of the upcoming primetime programming slate.
Alaskan Bush People was listed as part of a list of 20 series returning to the Discovery Channel, starting in 2017, and a definite premiere date for Season 7 was officially announced less than two weeks ago.
In a 30-second video clip on the official Alaskan Bush People Facebook page and also on the official Alaskan Bush People Twitter account, the Brown family patriarch Billy Brown shares that his wife Ami is sick, adding that the Brown family will have to leave Alaska, even though, for years, according to Billy, “the Bush has been our home,” which may or may not be true.
Both fans and critics alike of Alaskan Bush People take what the Brown family says with some skepticism considering the reality TV show has faced rumors of fakery, according to TVOvermind. Several reports have surfaced in the last three years that state that the Brown family only resides in the Alaskan Bush during the filming of Alaskan Bush People, and their alleged Alaskan Bush home, called Browntown, is just a set that was built on land leased by the Discovery Channel.
Discovery Channel’s lease of the land where Browntown sits on Chichagof Island near Hoonah, Alaska, is reportedly close to being up, which may explain why rumors have surfaced recently that Park Slope is “packing up Browntown,” following the end of filming for Alaskan Bush People Season 7.
One Alaskan Bush People Facebook page, that goes by @alaskanfrauds, posted just two days ago that “Park Slope is packing up Browntown and done filming.” The Facebook page is reportedly a page for critics of Alaskan Bush People, although, it has also been a source of information for fans of Alaskan Bush People, especially since the page claims they get all of their information from several inside sources, contacts, and first-hand witnesses.
That same Alaskan Bush People Facebook page shared another post just hours ago that the oldest brown sibling, Matt Brown, is currently in Los Angeles, following a recent accident in Alaska involving an explosion that led to a hospital stay and a head injury—a story that @alaskanfrauds also first revealed on May 24, but was also reported on two days later by TMZ, a site that some Alaskan Bush People fans and critics say is not a credible source.
#AlaskanBushPeople Prayers for Matt to be ok. Too many stories about his condition right now. Hope all is well and it was just staples.

The @alaskanfrauds post goes on to say that “Bear and the girls are in Alaska,” along with Noah and girlfriend Rhain, adding that Gabe never left Los Angeles, which is where the Brown family matriarch Ami Brown has reportedly been receiving treatment for an illness that’s rumored to be cancer, although, that has not yet been confirmed, according to a recent report by Radar Online.
Since Billy Brown did confirm that the Brown family is leaving Alaska for the seventh season of Alaskan Bush People, allegedly due to Ami’s illness, and Park Slope is reportedly packing up Browntown, fans are wondering if the Brown family will ever return to the Alaskan Bush.

With Ami Brown reportedly “critically” ill, Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown reportedly now married to Park Slope producer Allison Kagan, as previously reported by Railing Kill, and Noah engaged to girlfriend Rhain, speculation has been swirling for a while that Season 7 of Alaskan Bush People may be the last, although, the @alaskanfrauds Facebook page continues to say that even though the Brown family is saying farewell to Browntown, “this does not mean the show is over.”
Premiere Date shared that Season 6 of Alaskan Bush People debuted to 3.1 million viewers. Although not a number-one rated hit for the Discovery Channel, Premiere Date goes on to say that the “ongoing media hype” surrounding Alaskan Bush People and the Brown family is enough to keep it on the air.
A previous article by the Inquisitr formed a theory that the Discovery Channel may have a follow-up to Season 7 of Alaskan Bush People, possibly showing the Brown family allegedly adapting to civilization, or possibly showing the Brown children continuing on in the Alaskan Bush.
Season 6 of Alaskan Bush People left fans wondering if Joshua “Bam” Brown would be back for Season 7, and whether there will be a new member of the Brown family living in the Bush. The Season 6 finale episode left off with the possibility of Noah letting Rhain live with them in Alaska, as previously reported by Travelers Today.
In less than two weeks, fans of Alaskan Bush People will find out how the Season 6 cliffhangers play out in Season 7. Until then, the entire sixth season of Alaskan Bush People can be viewed on Discovery GO.
