TV show description:      
The storyline of this scripted series begins in 1908, when an unexplained event occurs deep in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska. More than 100 years later, 16 reality-show participants descend on Tunguska — unknowing of the land’s mysterious past.

These contestants are from varied walks of life and attempt to battle the elements (and each other) in a quest to survive the harsh winter and claim a large cash prize. What is initially met with unbridled enthusiasm quickly turns to sheer panic as a series of strange events begin to occur.

The contestants soon attribute the occurrences to ruses set up by the producers, even dismissing the death of a fellow player as an accident.

When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the other players meet the chilling realization that the strange occurrences are not part of the show. With their safety threatened, the competitors must band together in an effort to survive.

The show is hosted by Jonathan Buckley (Jonathan Buckley) and the participants are Carolina (Joyce Giraud), a bartender from Colombia; Johnny (Johnny Wactor), a bull rider from Jedburg, South Carolina; Daniel (Daniel Sutton), a computer programmer from Minneapolis; Neeko, a professional rugby player from London; Natalie (Natalie Scheetz), veterinary assistant from Santa Barbara; Sam (Sam Dobbins), an auto mechanic from Brooklyn; and Esther (Esther Anderson), a model from Melbourne.

The remaining contestants are Tommy (Tommy Mountain), a philanthropist from Boston; George (George Dickson), an accountant from Louisville; Anne-Marie (Anne-Marie Mueschke), a graphic artist from New Orleans; Miljan (Miljan Milosevic), a DJ from Podgorica, Montenegro; Irene (Irene Szuchun Yee), a fashion designer from Taiwan; Berglind (Berglind Icey), a photo journalist from Iceland; Harpreet (Harpreet Turka), a graduate student from Washington, DC; Victoria (Victoria Hill), a sales clerk from Winnipeg; and Sabina (Sabina Akhmedova), a soldier from Israel.

Series Finale:     
Episode #11 — Into the Oven
Reunited and seemingly safe, the contestants begin to put the pieces together — and encounter yet another mind-blowing surprise.
First aired: September 16, 2013.

    I LOVE Siberia!!! Please don’t cancel it!!! At least do a wrap up show so it has an ending. My friends and I are addicted!!!

    There should be a standing rule that on any series that runs through one season, if it is cancelled, should allowed closure episodes to follow to complete the basic story line. Number of episodes to depend upon what is needed to complete the story.

    Have enjoyed watching this series and hate that it has left us hanging without any mention when and if it will return. Please let us know if there will be an ending or at least another season. Thanks for the suspense.

    My oh my I think that the show was good. It left you on the edge of your seat. It through twists in there when you least expected it to.. I wish they would put it back on so I can continue to watch it.. Wish they would of just left it on then leaving it off where there did.. Please put it back on for a true watcher like me.. I was watching it every week …. Please put it back on…….

    A stupid miserable show. I kept watching it because I thought (hoped) it would get better. The characters mumbled so much that you could not really tell what they were saying most of the time and they always (very often at least) all talked simultaneously. A little bit more
    of explanation would have been welcome particularly for those of us with dull minds which need to be spoon fed. I have not ye decided if I should waste any more time watching future
