Morning Ledger emphasized that Discovery's new chief, Rich Ross, was on a roll doing away with shows that were "fake." Those shows included Mermaids and the Shark Week‘s highlights on Megalodon. Ross' track record poses a good question. Will Alaskan Bush People be axed for its purported hoax in reality television? Given the fact nothing solid on the return of Alaskan Bush People has come out as definite, this lack of information provides fertile ground for debate over the fate of the series.

If that wasn't enough, there were claims made that the reunion storylines of Billy with his estranged daughter and Ami with her estranged mother were actually scripted.

Thick smoke surrounds the show

The show has a lot of thick smoke around it. Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. It's too early to tell if the show will be renewed or cancelled. It's no secret that reality shows have a certain amount of fabrication tied to its various storylines.

The main difference is that the Browns have passed themselves off as authentic residents of the Alaskan bush. It's an essential part of the family's strong appeal. This particular component resonates with fans and they aren't happy about being manipulated.
