Alone places ten hardcore survivalists isolated in the Vancouver Island wilderness – no camera crew, no teams, no producers – on a single mission to stay alive. Carrying only what they can fit in a backpack, the survivalists are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain to hunt, build shelters and fend off predators. They face extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown, self-documenting their experience. Alone is the ultimate test of man’s will to survive. The contestant who survives longest on Vancouver Island in complete isolation stands to win $500,000.
“Alone is a groundbreaking series that has truly connected with audiences,” said History’s Executive Vice President and Head of Programming, Paul Cabana. “In today’s crowded landscape, it is incredibly rewarding to see a new series break through the clutter and grow week after week.”
Season one of Alone is averaging 2.5 million total viewers and has become the number three new nonfiction series on cable in 2015.
The season finale is set to air Thursday, August 20 at 10 p.m. on History.
