Naked and Afraid Returns to Discovery in February

Man-eating crocodiles, aggressive hippos, and toxic frogs await a new group of survivalists when Naked and Afraid debuts on Sunday, February 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Discovery has released a new promo for the season, which you can watch on YouTube.

Throughout the series, the participants must overcome their personal struggles and face the raw brutality of nature without easy access to food, water, or clothing.

In the premiere episode, a hunter and a farmer pool their knowledge as they attempt to survive 21 days in South Africa.

But when the wildlife proves too stealthy to hunt, the survivalists take a life-threatening risk for food.

Later this season, two veteran fan-favorite survivalists return to mentor two newcomers in an all-women tribe’s challenge in Colombia; a pair of Naked and Afraid critics use their armchair survival knowledge to attempt to make it through a 14-day fan challenge; and a survivalist must cope with menstruation in the middle of the African bush.

Scarce food resources and mosquito-infested tropics are just the beginning of what lies ahead for these survivalists.

Naked and Afraid is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83, a division of Lionsgate‘s Alternative Television group.
