Plot Synopsis

A pair of strangers -- one man and one woman -- survive in the wilderness for 21 days after being stranded without food, water and clothing and with only one personal item each. Each episode chronicles a different pair, as they get acquainted with each other, their surroundings, and the elements -- and then find a way to survive together or possibly die apart. In this series, survivalists try to survive 21 days in the Costa Rican rainforest (Kim and Shane), on the African Serengeti (EJ Synder and Kellie Nightlinger), in Massif D'lsalo in Madagascar (Jeff and Eva), and many more of the world's most extreme weather environments. Season 1 included 60-minute episodes, with Season 2 installments having a running time between 60 and 90 minutes in duration. Immediately following an eight-hour marathon (2-10pm ET/PT) of encore episodes, NAKED AND AFRAID returned with new episodes on Sunday, June 29, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery. In this episode, "Primal Fear," an unlikely pair of survivalists must coexist on the unforgiving African savannah of Namibia. A lack of food and fire -- and the difficulty of navigating the thorny landscape -- threaten to keep the intrepid team from completing their 21-day survival challenge. Discovery Channel premiered a new season of NAKED AND AFRAID on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, immediately following a brand-new, two-hour special, "Survival Countdown," which aired from 8-10pm. This season, Discovery Channel follows through with the #ShowUsWhatYouGot contest, which was launched the previous fall. Fans of the series were asked to submit videos explaining why they would want to take on the ultimate survival challenge. Two winners were chosen by a fan vote to take part in their very own NAKED AND AFRAID challenge. These super fans-turned survivalists will have their experience in survival training showcased in an exclusive series on Discovery.com, and their special episode of NAKED AND AFRAID will air on Discovery Channel later this season. In the season opener, "Alligator Alley," one Army mom and one Marine are shipped out to the sweltering swamps of the Florida Everglades where they will put their military survival training to the test, facing 8-foot alligators, venomous water moccasins, and bloodthirsty mosquitoes. NAKED AND AFRAID returned for its fifth season on Sunday, October 4, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT. In Season 5, survivalists are stranded all over the world, from Panama to Namibia, Belize to Thailand. Add in elephants, venomous snakes, skunks, tarantulas, killer bees, hippos, boa constrictors and mosquitoes that will just not quit... and that makes these the toughest and most challenging episodes of NAKED AND AFRAID to date. In the season opener, "Forsaken," an ex-cop and a 'wild child' clash over cuddling in the Panamanian jungle, but when one gets overwhelmed, the other steps up to the plate. A new season of NAKED AND AFRAID premiered on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, immediately following an all-day marathon (9am-10pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "King of the Forest," a self-proclaimed 'King of the forest' and a skilled endurance athlete take on the Alabama backwoods. They secure shelter and fire on Day 1, but once hunger kicks in it pushes one of them to do something that's never been done before on the series. Discovery Channel premiered a new season of NAKED AND AFRAID on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT. In the season opener, "Eye of the Storm," a wild child and retired sergeant are stranded in the Belize Jungle following a catastrophic hurricane that threatens their entire challenge. Can they survive in a rainforest that has been turned completely upside down? Plus, for the first time ever, this season features two survivalists, YouTuber Cory Williams and pro-surfer Anastasia Ashley, who documented their experience across social media. Fans of the series can catch daily highlights and low points of the NAKED AND AFRAID survival journey in real time. Cory and Anastasia both shared their journey in across their social platforms, as they trained and also during the challenge itself -- from Monday, February 20 until Sunday, March 5. Cory and Anastasia's episode airs later in the season.
