Discovery Channel has cancelled Sons of Winter after one season, there will not be a Season 2.
Cast member Tara-Lynn Barks confirmed the cancellation to RenewCancelTV, citing ratings and a change of leadership at the cabler for the show’s demise:
Well, the winter will soon be upon us as we spend every minute trying to prepare before the snow flies…But in the midst of our preparations we DID finally receive a phone call yesterday and were told that Discovery has chosen NOT to pick up a 2nd season of Sons of Winter… Could possibly be due to a new Discovery President taking the reins midseason and changing things up and possibly that its time slot didn’t garner the ratings that they had hoped. Or, maybe they just didn’t like the show lol But we do know as a family there is Someone much greater than us in control, and we trust that in the end, it simply was not His plan for it to continue, and in that, we are content…
But that is the latest news from our family direct to you. Thank you so much for your love and support and we have so enjoyed getting to know people from all over the world and are thankful for the new friends we have made… For our family, we count ourselves blessed for the really neat opportunity that the Lord provided through this show, we will now continue life as normal (and a little more relaxed this winter!) It remains our prayer that the Lord will continue to provide our family with opportunities to make a difference in His Kingdom….Thanks again to all of you, from Mr & Mrs Winter and the Sons of Winter.
The show was cancelled and we are OK with that as we know that we serve and trust a big God. We are thankful to Gurney Productions and Discovery for the great efforts they made with the show and the crews that endured some harsh conditions…all were amazing!
