Press release from Discovery, Jan. 30, 2017:
You think you know NAKED AND AFRAID? Think again. The television pop culture phenomenon that entices and shocks viewers every week returns Sunday, March 5th at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery. The all-new season is upping the ante and changing the game with the most real, raw, dangerous and insane moments you won’t see anywhere else on television. Last season, America’s #1 cable survival show garnered over 47M viewers P2+ and this year’s twists and turns promise to deliver naked and extreme television.
Each week, meet a new man and woman as they take on the toughest survival challenge out there… NAKED AND AFRAID. Only on NAKED AND AFRAID will you see survivalists stranded at sea for 24-hours dodging sharks. Only on NAKED AND AFRAID will you see people forced to hand-craft bird ‘nuggets’ to ward off starvation. Only on NAKED AND AFRAID will you see a duo hoping to survive under an active volcano, or skinning pelts with their bare hands in an attempt to ward off hypothermia. Only on NAKED AND AFRAID will you see two strangers come together and give it everything they’ve got just to make it one more day.
Will these survivalists have the emotional strength and drive to endure these grueling conditions and find out what they’re made of? Watch as each couple battles the elements, each other, and their own inner weaknesses to see who will triumph over the terrain, or fail under the force of nature.
Tune in this season, as two NAKED AND AFRAID super fans see if they have what it takes to conquer the ultimate survival challenge… all documented in real time, and uploaded daily over Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter for the ultimate NAKED AND AFRAID fan experience. And look out for a surprising twist this season, as one duo discovers they are not alone.
NAKED AND AFRAID is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83; David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Steve Rankin and Mathilde Bittner are executive producers. For Discovery, Denise Contis and Joseph Boyle are executive producers.
