Synopsis

Famed adventurer and survivalist Bear Grylls returns for a third season of "Running Wild with Bear Grylls."

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

Joining the renowned survivalist for Season 3 is SAG Award-winning actress Courteney Cox; actress, dancer and Emmy Award-winning choreographer Julianne Hough; stage and screen actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens; triple-platinum recording artist and actor Nick Jonas; NFL Super Bowl champion Marshawn Lynch; Hall of Fame basketball player Shaquille O'Neal; and alpine skier and Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn.

This season the series takes viewers from the remote African Savanna and mountain passes of Sierra Nevada to the wilds of Ireland and rocky shores of Corsica. The intrepid cast members face their deepest fears and tackle everything from wild animals to rock rappelling as they journey through some of the world's most unforgiving wildernesses. 

Pushing their minds and bodies to the limit to complete their journey, they experience the excitement of being dropped into uncharted territory and tackling the wilderness head-on, which is daunting and draining, but also very empowering.

"Running Wild with Bear Grylls" was developed by Grylls and Delbert Shoopman. The series is produced by Electus and Bear Grylls Ventures. Grylls serves as executive producer along with Ben Silverman, Chris Grant, Laura Caraccioli, Vittoria Cacciatore and Shoopman.
