PRESS RELEASE: HOMESTEAD RESCUE

The Raney Family Returns Wednesday, January 2 at 10 PM ET/PT with a Season Special Airing Wednesday, December 26 at 10 PM ET/PT

(Los Angeles) – Homesteading saviors Marty, Misty, and Matt Raney return to the most desperate homesteads across America to help those on the brink of failure learn to survive and thrive off the grid. Using fresh ingenuity, the trio will help several new struggling families discover how to successfully secure clean water, grow sustainable crops, protect their valuable livestock, and reinforce failing infrastructures, all while facing the most grueling obstacles mother nature has to offer. While the Raneys answer these cries for help with their unique skillset, each family will ultimately have to decide if they can stick it out for the long-haul or must pack up and return to civilization. An all-new season of HOMESTEAD RESCUE premieres Wednesday, January 2 at 10pm ET/PT with a season special airing Wednesday, December 26 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery.

Millions of Americans have traded modern life for self-sufficient homesteading, but the Raneys continue to prove that living off the grid is no easy feat. From the flood-riddled lands of Missouri to the frigid, unrelenting woods of Alaska, this season father Marty, daughter Misty, and son Matt will face some of the most intense challenges yet. To help fulfill these homesteaders’ dreams, the three work tirelessly to locate clean drinking water on toxic lands, build an entire cabin from scratch in 7 days, dig a massive dam in a flood zone, craft life-saving wildfire protection, and automate a homestead to function on its own while its residents are away.

To never give up is the Raney way – but will some of these homesteads simply prove too difficult to rescue?
