Naked and Afraid Season 17

Was Naked and Afraid cancelled or renewed for season 17? When does it start on Discovery? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is Naked and Afraid About?

In "Naked and Afraid," complete strangers -- usually a man and a woman -- meet in a very unique way: They're stranded in a dangerous, desolate location, without food or water, and they're completely naked. Each episode follows the adventurers as they attempt to survive on their own with nothing but a personal item and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. Because there is no other choice, competitors quickly get to know one another -- and their surroundings -- and hope that their instincts, survival skills, and intestinal fortitude serve them well.

Man-eating crocodiles, aggressive hippos, and toxic frogs await a new group of survivalists when NAKED AND AFRAID debuts Sunday, February 18 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. Throughout the series, the participants must overcome their personal struggles and face the raw brutality of nature without easy access to food, water, or clothing.

In the premiere episode, a hunter and a farmer pool their knowledge as they attempt to survive 21 days in South Africa. But when the wildlife proves too stealthy to hunt, the survivalists take a life-threatening risk for food.

Later this season, two veteran fan-favorite survivalists return to mentor two newcomers in an all-women tribe’s challenge in Colombia; a pair of Naked and Afraid critics use their armchair survival knowledge to attempt to make it through a 14-day fan challenge; and a survivalist must cope with menstruation in the middle of the African bush. Scarce food resources and mosquito-infested tropics are just the beginning of what lies ahead for these survivalists.

In addition to watching NAKED AND AFRAID on Discovery, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #NakedAndAfraid and following Naked and Afraid on Facebook, X, and Instagram.

NAKED AND AFRAID is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83, a division of Lionsgate’s Alternative Television group.
