Fans are aware that that the "Alaskan Bush People" matriarch Ami Brown is not in a good condition. Recently, there are reports that she only has 3% chance of survival. Does this mean that there will no longer be a season 8?

When Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer, things took a painful turn for the family. Although the condition of Ami is hard for them, they are also at a professional crossroads due to their reality show. Many are asking if the Browns are willing to continue with the show, especially with the condition of Ami.

Is season 8 happening?

The premiere of "Alaskan Bush People" season 7 brought 2.6 million viewers while there are over 2.8 million viewers for its follow-up installment. Based on the show's ratings, there is a huge possibility that Discovery will renew the show. But there is a question if the Browns could do it due to the health situation of Ami.

Despite Ami's diagnosis, there is a chance that the Browns will still continue with the show since they need it to sustain themselves. Apparently, they need the finances to support the medication of Ami. And even if Ami losses her battle with cancer, the show seems to go on.

According to The Hollywood Gossip, cameras are already rolling for "Alaskan Bush People" season 8 and it may come out by October this year.

It is expected that Discovery will make an announcement soon regarding the show's premiere.

Possible storyline

It is noted that Billy Brown's family already left Alaska and moved to Colorado so they could have easier access to the medical treatment of Ami. The show will be featuring the lives of the family while they are in their new Browntown.

It may also feature the marriage of Noah and his girlfriend Rhain. Of course, it will also show how Ami and her family remain strong despite the health scare Ami is facing.

As reported before, Ami wants to film her battle with cancer so it can serve as an inspiration to others. She hopes that if people watch the show and see what she is going through; it will take away their fear.

Ami remains strong and optimistic, even if her condition is not good.

Ami reveals that it could be her last days but she does not want to give up and just die. She said that she still has the will to fight. The 53-year-old Brown matriarch has dropped her weight from 128 lbs to 89.4 lbs since she was diagnosed with the disease.

It was in June 2016 when Ami first felt signs of cancer when she felt a pain on her back, making it hard for her to film "Alaskan Bush People." At first, she thought it was mere arthritis but after a dental checkup, traces of cancer cells were then discovered.
