"Survivorman" returns to Science Channel in 2015 for four new episodes that feature Les Stroud as he embarks on five-to-seven-day journeys into the wilderness, relying on his years of training, raw instincts and sheer will to survive. And if that weren't enough, he refuses to bring along a film crew, preferring instead to maintain an authentic survival situation and film the journey himself, dragging 65 pounds of camera gear every inch of the way. But this season, one episode will feature a very special guest.

2012

The series returns to Discovery Channel in 2012 after four long years for gripping all-new episodes. Filmmaker and outdoor adventurer Les Stroud once again ventures into the wild with no food, no water and no crew. He must rely on his years of training, raw instincts and sheer will to survive. And if that weren't enough, he refuses to bring along a film crew, preferring instead to keep it an authentic survival situation and film the journey himself, dragging 65 pounds of camera gear every inch of the way. And this time, Stroud is upping the ante and spending 10 days surviving alone in some of the world's harshest environments. Each location plays out in two one-hour episodes.

Over the course of his "Survivorman" career, Les Stroud has visited 23 locations where he spent more then 170 days alone and starving while foraging for food, building makeshift shelters and filming his survival odysseys. Throughout, Stroud put himself in precarious situations while relying on his years of training, raw instincts and sheer will to survive with little more than a multi-tool. He's been chased by jaguar in an Amazonian jungle, come dangerously close to heat stroke in the Kalahari Desert and feasted on a rotten turtle in the Georgian swamps that left him battling a parasite for the next year.

"Survivorman" is produced for Discovery Channel by Survivorman Productions, Inc., where Les Stroud is the executive producer. For Discovery Channel, Joshua C. Berkley is the executive producer.
