Plot Synopsis

ALONE is an adventure reality series that places ten hardcore survivalists alone in the wilderness -- no camera crew, no teams, no producers -- on a single mission to stay alive. At stake is $500,000 awarded to the person who can last the longest. Throughout the competition, they face extreme isolation and psychological distress as they plunge into the unknown, self-documenting their experience. Seasons 1 and 2 took place on Vancouver Island. On Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, History premiered the 13-episode second season of ALONE, immediately following an all-day marathon (10am-9pm) of encore episodes from the previous season. Season 3 of ALONE premiered on Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, immediately following a new one-hour special. The ten-episode new season places ten hardcore survivalists -- both male and female -- alone in the cold, isolated region of Patagonia, Argentina with one mission: to stay alive. As in previous seasons, with no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks, these survivalists face treacherous predators like never before, experience unforgiving and unpredictable weather conditions and showcase unbelievable building acumen by creating the most ingenious inventions. Before the season begins, the "Making the Cut: Season 3" special at 8pm introduced the ten brave participants on ALONE Season 3 and learn about the extreme new location at the edge of the world. Then, in the season opener (9pm), "A New Land," the adventure begins as ten new participants are abandoned in the remote wilderness of Patagonia to live as long as they possibly can. Faced with the unforgiving terrain of a foreign land and the onset of winter, each must act quickly to adapt to their new environment in order to survive. On December 7 -- one day before the Season 3 premiere -- History announced that it renewed ALONE for a fourth season.
On Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, History premiered the Season 3 finale of ALONE, immediately followed by the season's reunion show. In the season ender (9pm), "Day 87," the remaining participants, short on food, risk death in their attempt to triumph. Only one survivalist will be able to endure the wilds of Patagonia and take home the $500,000 prize. Then at 10pm, the participants of ALONE's third season reunite to discuss their experiences, genius creations, and reveal never-before-seen footage.
