Flying Wild Alaska Greenlighted for a Second Season by Discovery Channel
Discovery Channel's wildly successful series Flying Wild Alaska has been greenlighted for a second season. The show debuted on January 14 of this year in record breaking fashion. The premier was the highest-rated new series launch in Discovery Channel's history.
Whew, what a relief. For the past eight weeks this show has been my kick-off to the weekend and although I was hopeful it would be back for another season, I had not seen confirmation until recently that it would return for a second season.
I have enjoyed getting a glimpse into the way of life of the bush pilots and the Tweto family. It seems I am not alone in my love for this show. Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discover Channel commented "Viewers have simply fallen in love with the quirky Tweto family and their intrepid team of pilots, and we're excited to see how much more they push the limits next season."
Ariel Tweto one of the stars on the show was a guest on Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show this past week. You can tell from the comments on this video that she is a crowd favorite.
