National Geographic has announced details on the second season of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls”, which is returning with on March 29th at 9/8c on National Geographic.  No Disney+ release date has yet been announced, but the first season is available to watch now on Disney+ in the US and some other countries.

Each week, a new celebrity guest leaves the luxury of their homes to venture into some of the most extreme environments in the world to conquer fears, test their limits and sometimes dabble in nature’s not so tasty delicacies. Continuing to push superstars’ comfort levels this season, Grylls travels the globe from the deserts of Utah to the Dolomites of Italy to the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California for more epic, life-changing adventures.

“There’s no doubt that life has been difficult for so many around the world, but if anything, this time is teaching us all resilience—and there is no better teacher than the wild. For me to be able to head back into the wild with so many incredible new celebrity guests is a true privilege,” says host Bear Grylls. “I know the power in life of never giving up, and this newest season tested that in spades. In each of these tough, unforgiving environments, from deserts to high mountains, we see these stars share some incredibly intimate and honest moments. To be part of that is a powerful inspiration—and that is so needed right now.”

Survival is the name of the game when Emmy®-nominated star Terry Crews (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) joins Bear on an epic journey across Iceland’s treacherous terrain to cross freezing, violent floodwaters while trying to avoid hypothermia. Fan-favorite Bobby Bones (“Breaking Bobby Bones”) is back for round two, and this time he brings his fiancé Caitlin Parker along for the ride in their first joint television appearance! Their ability to rely upon each other in the rugged wilderness of the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains is put to the ultimate test when they must track deadly mountain lions, descend towering sandstone cliffs and forage for food under ice-covered waterfalls.

Bear takes Marvel superstar Anthony Mackie (the highly anticipated Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”) to the highest peaks of the Italian Dolomite mountains for an adventure he’ll never forget. There he braves freezing conditions to conquer sheer cliffs and icy waterfalls, where even the smallest slip could lead to disaster. Emmy Award-winning actor and comedian Keegan-Michael Key (“Brain Games”) must put all jokes aside and face some of his greatest fears to conquer the lava fields of Iceland in an adrenaline-pumping adventure.

  • Bobby Bones and fiancé Caitlin Parker –award-winning and influential American TV and radio personality and bestselling author (“The Bobby Bones Show,” “Breaking Bobby Bones,” “American Idol”)

    Maybe you could start confirming which countries Disney+ shows are airing on rather than just stating it is on Disney+ because they’re not always across the board on all international versions, prime example being Running Wild with Bear Grylls. You’ve stated season 1 is available, but not in the UK.

      I've updated the article to reflect that. I usually try to be as specific as I can, this came from the direct press release.
