 “Alone”
Season Premiere Thursday, December 8 at 9 PM ET/PT on HISTORY
 
          HISTORY’s fearless survival series Alone” returns for a ten episode third season. With higher stakes and greater challenges than ever before, “Alone,” will place ten hardcore survivalists – both male and female – alone in the cold, isolated region of Patagonia, Argentina with one mission: to stay alive. There are no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks. In a new remote location at the bottom of the globe, survivalists will face treacherous predators like never before, experience unforgiving and unpredictable weather conditions and showcase unbelievable building acumen by creating some of the most ingenious inventions ever seen.

          Equipped only with limited gear, their wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, these brave men and women are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain. Thousands of miles away from home, the survivalists are unaware of when others tap out, increasing the pressure. To survive, they must find food and water, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation, psychological distress, and treacherous environmental conditions as they descend into the unknown.  In the most dangerous season yet, the harsh conditions of Patagonia force the urgent medical evacuation of many individuals throughout the season.

          Each episode of “Alone” features the nerve-wracking thrill of watching individuals face the fury of Mother Nature while plunging into a state of isolation unimaginable in today’s hyper-connected, always-on world. These participants must battle everything from territorial predators such as puma and wild boar, to sub-zero temperatures of an extremely remote location. Determined to thrive in any environment, the men and women of season three display incredible ingenuity building elaborate creations such as a floating, propeller driven duck trap, self-draining wooden shelter floors, a punji stick boar trap and a live fish refrigerator system.
