Alaskan Bush People Season 7 kicked off on June 14, but the first episode turned out to be a recap of what the Brown family has gone through in the past seasons. Meanwhile, a new preview has been released, promising an all-new episode next week.
In the clip for the new season of Alaskan Bush People posted on the show’s official Facebook page, the family brings Ami to the hospital. Ami tearfully tells her husband Billy that they survived a sinking boat with babies, and whatever she’s going through, she’s tough enough to handle it. The synopsis for next episode, titled “Faith & Family” reads:
“The displaced Brown’s struggle through a devastating transition while Ami undergoes testing due to recent health concerns. Meanwhile, Browntown is under the care of a lone protector, as Noah braves the dangers of the wilderness to defend the homestead.”
Ami and Billy Brown’s children also weigh in on their current situation. Gabe tells the camera, “We’ve worried so much and we’ve waited so long that just, I don’t really have any thoughts left.” Back in the bush, Matt tells Noah, “That’s just our lives are changing. We’re closing down and moving out.”
Rumors have been floating around that the Brown family are leaving Browntown. These also fuel speculations that the Alaskan Bush People would not be renewed for Season 8.
“We’ll shut the book on the forest, and we’ll open a new book,” Ami tells Billy. Ami’s condition is still unclear, although reports said she is in Los Angeles receiving treatment. Billy previously confirmed that his wife is sick and the family would have to leave Alaska.
The way it looks, there is the possibility that Alaskan Bush People would still go on, featuring how Ami and Billy, together with their seven grown children, will try to preserve their way of life away from the Alaskan wilderness.

And then amid the uncertainties of their lives in the bush, Matt met an accident. Alaskan Bush People Season 7 preview clip showed medic responding to the scene. Matt was bleeding in the head and was loaded into the ambulance. TMZ previously reported that Matt ended up with nine staples in the head. He allegedly put a mason jar that contained gunpowder and cannon fuse inside his fridge, which caused an explosion.
Before the new season of Alaskan Bush People started, Matt gave an update about his condition:
“Thank you to everyone for your well wishes following my recent accident. I am doing well and recovering with my family. This year has been tough for us but your positive thoughts mean so much and keep us hopeful. Thank you again.”
Alaskan Bush People Season 7 airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.
