The premiere season of YUKON MEN follows the residents of Tanana, Alaska as they face one of the most brutal winters on record. People struggle to find food and heat; battle life-threatening predators just to survive. Boys grow into men quickly here because they must help the family survive. Father-son bonding and tensions take on a new meaning in this environment. The stakes are high in Tanana, and to defy the odds, to survive and to battle the harsh Alaskan wilderness, the residents must overcome obstacles, stick together and prevail.
The two hour season finale of YUKON MEN returns this Friday, October 19th at 9pm ET/PT. The villagers of Tanana have just 18 hours to get a year's worth of king salmon... and vicious grizzlies are stealing food.
