Disney has announced that the sixth season of “Running Wild With Bear Grylls” will be coming to Disney+ in the United States on Friday 21st May.

In each episode, 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.

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.

This season’s lineup of celebrity guests includes (in alpha order):

  • 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”)
  • Terry Crews – Emmy Award-nominated actor and former NFL linebacker (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Deadpool 2,” “The Expendables”);
  • Keegan-Michael Key – Emmy Award-winning actor and comedian (“Brain Games,” “The Prom,” “Friends from College”)
  • Anthony Mackie – award-winning actor (“Avengers: Endgame,” “Altered Carbon,” “Captain America: Civil War,” highly anticipated Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”)
  • Danica Patrick –former professional racing driver and the only female winner of an IndyCar Series race—the 2008 Indy Japan 300
  • Danny Trejo – award-winning actor (“Machete,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series”)
  • Rainn Wilson – actor, writer and producer (“The Office,” “Utopia,” “Star Trek: Discovery”)

New episodes are currently airing on the National Geographic channel.  No international Disney+ release has yet been announced.

Season 5 is available to watch on Disney+ now.  The first four seasons aren’t owned by National Geographic, which is why they aren’t available on Disney+.
