Back for its sixth season on National Geographic, world-renowned survivalist Bear Grylls returns to the wilderness, eager to push the mental and physical limits of a new slate of celebrities in the hit adventure series Running Wild With Bear Grylls that is set to premiere on April 23.
Survival is the name of the game, as celebrity guests leave the luxury of their homes to venture into some of the most extreme environments to conquer their fears. Continuing to push their comfort levels, Grylls travels the globe from the deserts of Utah to the Dolomites of Italy for epic, life changing adventures.
“There’s no doubt that life has been difficult for so many around the world, but if anything, this time is teaching us all resilience—and there is no better teacher than the wild. For me to be able to head back into the wild with so many incredible new celebrity guests is a true privilege,” says host Bear Grylls.
“I know the power in life of never giving up, and this newest season tested that in spades. In each of these tough, unforgiving environments, from deserts to high mountains, we see these stars share some incredibly intimate and honest moments. To be part of that is a powerful inspiration—and that is so needed right now.”
This season’s line-up of celebrity guests includes award-winning and influential American TV and radio personality and bestselling author (“The Bobby Bones Show,” “Breaking Bobby Bones,” “American Idol”) Bobby Bones and fiancée Caitlin Parker; Terry Crews, Emmy Award-nominated actor, and former NFL linebacker (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Deadpool 2,” “The Expendables”).
Celebrities also include Keegan -Michael Key, Emmy Award-winning actor and comedian (“Brain Games,” “The Prom,” “Friends from College”); Anthony Mackie, award-winning actor (“Avengers: Endgame,” “Altered Carbon,” “Captain America: Civil War,” highly anticipated Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”); Danica Patrick, former professional racing driver and the only female winner of an IndyCar Series race—the 2008 Indy Japan 300; Danny Trejo, award-winning actor (“Machete,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”); and Rainn Wilson, actor, writer and producer (“The Office,” “Utopia,” “Star Trek: Discovery”).
