History’s ‘Alone’ Returns On Thursday And Is Already Renewed For Season Three

HISTORY’s bold survival series “Alone” is back for a second season, premiering Thursday, April 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The thirteen episode series places ten hardcore survivalists alone on northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The contestants have one mission: to stay alive. There are no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks. At stake is a $500,000 cash prize awarded to the person who can last the longest. “Alone” will also air in more than 200 territories worldwide on HISTORY. The show has already been renewed for season three.

Equipped only with limited gear, their wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, these brave men and women are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain. To survive, they must find food and water, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation, psychological distress, and treacherous environmental conditions as they descend into the unknown.

2.4 million viewers tuned in for the season one finale of “Alone,” growing 50% from its series premiere. It was History’s #1 new non-fiction series of 2015 among all key demos.

Each episode of “Alone” features the nerve-wracking thrill of watching individuals face the fury of Mother Nature while plunging into a state of isolation unimaginable in today’s hyper-connected world. These participants must battle everything from territorial black bears and cougars, to punishing winds and incessant rain. Determined to thrive in any environment, many of the men and women on the second season display incredible ingenuity by building elaborate creations such as a functioning stove, gravity-fed plumbing system, primitive weapons, boats, and much more.
