BROADCAST HISTORY:
7/12/15 - ???
STATUS:
returning this summer (yet to premiere)
TIME SLOT:
sundays from 10:00 PM-11:00 PM EST
CURRENT SEASON:
4 (??? episodes)
DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery Channel's press release, March 2018) After three seasons and three treacherous locations, thirteen Naked and Afraid veterans take on the most harrowing survival challenge yet in an all-new season of Discovery's NAKED AND AFRAID XL. For 40 days and 40 nights, survivalists put their lives on the line in Africa's deadly Selati River Basin, a region devastated by drought and teeming with starving predators. For some, the challenge offers potential redemption - three Naked and Afraid veterans unable to complete the challenge in the past will attempt another 40 days in hell. Elsewhere in the African Bush, another former survivalist sets off on his own impossible quest for redemption. But in this survival challenge that is biblical in scale, can any of the survivalists make it to the end? NAKED AND AFRAID XL premieres Sunday, May 6 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Deep in the heart of Africa, ongoing drought has stripped the lush region of resources, creating a fierce competition among the country's deadliest predators. Dropped into the savannah in four groups of three, the survivalists must master the environment and face their deepest fears. But the trial tests more than just personal endurance - survivalists will have to decide if they are stronger together or if they will break into smaller groups to succeed. Will teams embrace their varied skills and personalities as a tool for survival, or will their differences divide them?
