National Geographic has cancelled Ultimate Survival Alaska after three seasons.
In a statement, the network confirmed it will not be moving forward with a fourth season of the reality competition series:
There unfortunately will not be a 4th season. We loved the show and it ran its course over a terrific three seasons – the skilled adventurers from the show will always be part of our family!
No explanation for the cancellation has been provided at this time, but the axe comes hot on the heels of the death of former contestant Jimmy Gojdics.

I wish the decision to cancel Ultimate Survivor Alaska would be revisited. This was an excellent show. I actually liked it better each season. I loved watching the Alaskan team and the military team each week and would make it a point to watch them no matter what else was on. I am not a fan of the life below zero or last Alaskans as they are boring to me. The Alaskan frontier is no better. Interesting but not enough to make me miss something else. Please rethink and bring Ultimate Survivor back!

ultimate Alaska survival is/was my favorite show these are real people taking real challenges, and demonstrating incredible fortitude. unlike other reality shows that push as much drama as they can to boost ratings ultimate Alaska survival has team of three, and working together and watching out for each other in what I think is the toughest competition around.it is raw and keeps me at the edge of my seat watching it. Why cancel a show like ultimate Alaska survival and replace it with something like The woodsmen
This is a fantastic show to wach.
I am sorry to hear about this man.
But the show shouldn’t be canceled.
Will you start a different show with these people, they are fun to watch???? 0
Grady Powell from the military team is now on Dual Survival, first episode with him just aired a couple of days ago.
Honestly this show was so awesome! CANNOT BELIEVE its getting cancelled. What are these networks honestly thinking about when they decide to keep a show. I’ve seen a show about a little girl eating her boogers and swearing stay on more seasons than this amazing real-life competitive show.
I love this show!! They should really consider renewing it! It is a great show and so many people love to watch it!!

Typical poor network decision to cancel a show as riveting as this. I was wondering when it was coming back on when I finally looked and found out the dummies at NatGeo blew ANOTHER one!
Boycott of their network is in order for me. My small way to say they made a stupid dscision
one of the best shows on TV really well made hope it comes back
This is devastating news. Was one of our favorite shows, one our entire family watched together. We were looking forward to Season 4. I hope the decision to cancel the show can be over-ruled! PLEASE reconsider!!
I am so distraught! Why did you cancel a show that was so interesting!!!

I cannot believe you cancelled this show. I’m a 79 year old grandmother and I loved it. I was heartbroken today when I found out we weren’t going to get any new episodes.
That was a definitely out of the box show which compiles nature, survival, hiking and crossterian experience, decision making and most important a team work. A teamwork which at the end of the day makes a difference despite how good are your skills. There are no shows on tv like that, neither on NG nor on other channels. And here you go, we decided to kill this one. Not sure what driving factors led to make this decision, but let me guess, 1)not making money, 2) strong political component 3) marketing team sucks. 4) any both. You choose…
I’m not fond of writing comments, but this particular cancellation touched me deeply.
This angers me to the core. For once a reality show that seemed real, real people in real situations using thier knowledge to overcome the obstacles. This is literally turning into the shyttiest year of nat goe shows ever!
