Despite rumors of the cancellation of the?Alaskan Bush People, a report states that a new season of the controversial reality show has begun filming. Meanwhile, amid the endless speculations about the show being fake, the family seems to be earning a lot from the series. In fact, they may be a lot richer than everyone thinks.
Numerous reports claiming that Alaskan Bush People is nearing cancellation have made the rounds on the web. Apparently, the show being bumped off to a Friday slot from its original Wednesday schedule is a hint that it may be axed soon. In fact, the Inquisitr referred to it as a death sentence. It is said that Friday primetime is usually reserved for dying shows. Various series had reportedly been axed after they were moved to a Friday night schedule.
In fact, Discovery Channel itself, which airs the show, may have hinted the same sentiment in its recent tweet. ?Take a look at the effort spent to bring bush life to lower 48 audiences. #AlaskanBushPeople special is on @ 10ET,? Discovery Canada?s tweet reads.
However, according to the Inquisitr, Railing Kill reported that the show?s crew and cast have returned to Hoonah, Alaska for the filming of a new season. It is yet to be officially confirmed, however.
