Ice Road Truckers is definitely one of History’s most successful and veteran shows. Obviously, the docu-series is very compelling, when you have to watch heavy loaded 18-wheelers skid across frozen lakes, as they are trying to avoid snowbanks and the always present fear of actually breaking through the ice – which has happened on numerous occasions. Unfortunately, the drivers did not always survive these accidents, so the deaths as well as the general unkind driving conditions will not only keep the drivers themselves, but also the viewers well on their toes. Boasting overall ratings of a solid 6.4 out of 10 stars on IMDb and a whopping 8.2 out of 10 stars on TV.com, the show is bound to get another renewal, as the fan base is huge. However, as of today, History has not yet officially announced its future plans for the show, so stay tuned and we will keep you updated if and when Ice Road Truckers returns with season 12.
About the series
Ice Road Truckers (IRT) is an American reality TV series about the drivers who operate trucks on seasonal routes in the very remote Arctic territories of Canada and Alaska. The very first season originally premiered back in 2007 on the American History Channel and has since been renewed for overall 11 seasons, with the current installment debuting on August 24th, 2017 with brand new episodes. The show has been adapted worldwide and airs in several other countries, like the UK, the Netherlands and Australia. The docu-series hails from the production companies Original Productions, History Channel and Eagle Vision and is executive produced by Thom Beers, who also narrates the show, Philip David Segal, Jeff Conroy, Dawn Fitzgerald, David McKillop and Julian P. Hobbs, to name just a few.
Each season features a group of daring drivers taking on some incredibly dangerous and sometimes oversized loads for their companies. There are men and women, who take on these monumental tasks of not only driving the biggest trucks in the country, but to actually – as the title suggests – drive them across ice. Some drivers are veterans with extremely valuable experience, but they are often also haunted by the accidents and also deaths they had to witness. Other drivers are young and have no experience at all, which could put them into real danger, if they get stuck in white-out conditions. The fire within these people is truly inspiring and more often than not the show will have you on the edge of your seat.
