National Geographic Channel has renewed its Primal Survivor TV show for a third season. According to Deadline, the cable channel has ordered six episodes for season three. Icon Films produces Primal Survivor for National Geographic. Harry Marshall and Stephen McQuillan executive executive produce.
Survival instructor and wilderness guide Hazen Audel hosts the series. In it, Nat Geo says Audel, “…travels to some of the world’s most remote tribal communities to learn how they have survived for thousands of years in the planet’s toughest environments.” Primal Survivor has explored locales including the rainforests of Ecuador, the Kalahari Desert of Namibia, the mountains of western Mongolia, the Artic, and equatorial Kenya.
Primal Survivor Renewed for Season Three on Nat Geo
Season 3 will follow wilderness guide and survivor instructor Hazen Audel as he lives with native inhabitants in climates all over the world. In a bid to determine how anyone survives in these extreme places, this season will see Hazen tackle solo journeys in six locations around the world.
A few of the highlights — Off the coast of Taiwan, Audel will battle powerful ocean currents and violent tropical storms in a tiny boat to reach the Tao tribe’s fishing grounds and prove he is worthy of respect. In the Australia desert he will have to avoid venomous snakes and deadly spiders in search of a new waterhole. Wearing thin leather sandals in the way of the Tarahumara, he will have to navigate precarious cliffs, raging rivers and violent thunderstorms on a treacherous run through Mexico’s mountainous Copper Canyon. Other locations include northern Namibia, the Indonesian jungle and frozen wilds of northeast Canada.
