What happened to Michael Manzo from Life Below Zero?

Life Below Zero is a documentary featuring a group of people, such as Michael Manzo, who live in Alaska in below zero degrees temperatures.

The show highlights the daily activities and techniques they use to survive in the difficult environments in which they live.

Viewers may be wondering where Michael is on the new season of the National Geographic series, and Reality Titbit has the latest updates.

Who is Michael Manzo?

Michael Manzo is a fan favorite in the documentary Life Below Zero.

He is a 30-year-old American, with Mi’kmaq Indian ethnicity, living in the Alaskan wilderness, where he moved to back in 2002.

This guy is a man of many trades, being a hunter, traveler, fisherman, and canoe-builder, and he is currently the co-owner of Yukon Freightworks Canoe Company!

Michael Manzo is quite a private person, he isn’t on social media and hasn’t revealed much on the show about his personal life.

Therefore, we assume that he doesn’t have a wife or children, as he has never mentioned them.

What happened to Michael Manzo?

  • National Geographic has replaced him with the Roach family.

Michael Manzo will not be appearing in the latest season of Life Below Zero. Instead, a new family will feature as his replacement.

Although he won’t be on the show, he is still very much living out in Alaska and using his Native techniques to get by.

Now, Michael is professionally a canoe builder, and runs a base camp right outside of Delta Junction. If he’s not working, then he is travelling.

Reality Titbit assumes that he was dropped from the series due to bringing on more relatable, younger, and less experienced cast members.

This may be down to generally just switching up the series, but it is likely that Michael is too busy to re-join the show for filming.

Who is returning to Life Below Zero?

There are several original cast members who fans will recognise, that won’t be leaving us for the 17th season.

This year’s confirmed cast members include:

  • The Hailstones (Chip, Tinmiaq, Carol and Agnes)
  • Skyler Wells
  • Jessie Holmes
  • Sue Aikens
  • Alex Javor
  • Brittany and Caleb Rowland
