At the Winter Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, National Geographic Global Television Networks President Courteney Monroe announced “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” has been picked up for a second season.
Finding a new home on National Geographic this season, the wildly popular hit series RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS garners an original season pickup ahead of its season finale. In the current season on the adrenaline-packed RUNNING WILD, world-renowned adventurer Bear Grylls traversed croc-infested mangroves in the Gulf of Panama with Brie Larson, experienced the ancient art of trout tickling with Channing Tatum in the mountains of Norway, ate ants and then climbed a mountain in the Swiss Alps with free soloist Alex Honnold, and even drank milk directly from a goat’s udder with Armie Hammer in Sardinia.
In the season finale on Tuesday, January 21st at 10/9c on the National Geographic channel, Grylls will take Emmy-nominated actor Zachary Quinto on a treacherous adventure through the dense Panamanian jungle during tropical storm season.
Back at last years Investor Day Event, it was announced the series would be coming to Disney+. With the first season ending this month on the National Geographic channel, I’d expect the first season to be coming to Disney+ soon.
Are you excited for more Bear Grylls?
