Running Wild with Bear Grylls

About the Show

Famed adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls returns for a second season of "Running Wild with Bear Grylls," premiering July 13, 2015 (10:00 p.m. ET/PT).

In this hour-long alternative series, Grylls will take eight entertainment and sports stars into the most remote and pristine locations in the U.S. and around the world for a 48-hour journey of a lifetime.

Joining the renown survivalist for Season 2 are Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet, Oscar nominee Kate Hudson, Super Bowl-winning quarterback Drew Brees, Emmy nominee and "Modern Family" star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, "Hangover" star Ed Helms, "Furious 7" star Michelle Rodriguez, and award-winning film and television actors James Marsden ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") and Michael B. Jordan ("Fantastic Four").

Each of these eight accomplished actors and athletes will partner with Grylls for two days for a one-on-one adventure they will not soon forget.

This season, the series will take viewers to the jungles of Panama and the far reaches of the Italian Alps to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and red rocks of Utah. The intrepid cast members will face their deepest fears and tackle everything from skydiving to repelling as they journey through some of the world's most unforgiving wildernesses.
Pushing their minds and bodies to the limit to complete their journeys, they will experience the excitement of being dropped into uncharted territory and tackling the wilderness head-on, which will be daunting and draining, but also very empowering.

The show was devised by Grylls and Delbert Shoopman. Grylls recently starred on the NBC series "Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls" and serves as host and executive producer of "The Island."
