Naked and Afraid XL Enters the Valley of the Banished

By: Discovery

Thrive with the tribe or face the consequences in the new season of NAKED AND AFRAID XL

May 03, 2020

In an all-new season of NAKED AND AFRAID XL, only the strong will survive as a new crop of survivalists, including those seeking redemption, are looking to conquer the 40 day challenge. The unforgiving savannah of South Africa may look familiar but there's a new twist unlike anything ever attempted on previous seasons. This year's twelve survivalists are about to enter The Valley of the Banished.

Meet the Naked and Afraid XL Cast

Facing unforgiving conditions, grueling temperatures and clashing personalities, these survivalists will be pushed past their limits. To make it through this NAKED AND AFRAID XL challenge, every survivalist will have to earn their right to stay in the tribe and anything less than your all will mean banishment from the group. Give everything or get out.

In an environment where food is scarce and resources are nearly impossible to come by, only the strong willed and strong minded will survive. Each survivalist must prove their worth to the group, or risk being cast out.

NAKED AND AFRAID XL premieres Sunday, May 24 at 8P on Discovery. Viewers can also catch up on all episodes of NAKED AND AFRAID and NAKED AND AFRAID XL on Discovery GO.
