Naked and Afraid: XL is Going HAM for 60 Days

By: Discovery

Legends Only. NAKED AND AFRAID XL heads to the swamp Sunday April 25 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery.

April 11, 2021

It’s time to get XXL. We’ve seen all-star survivalists take on the most extreme environments, from Colombia jungle to South Africa Savannah. They’ve given it all they’ve got, but could they give more?

Now, 12 legends are about to test themselves like never before. In an all-new season of NAKED AND AFRAID XL, the survivalists are heading to the deadly swamps of Louisiana for an epic 60-day-challenge. Who will make it to the end and reach legendary status?

NAKED AND AFRAID XL returns for an all new season Sunday, April 25 at 8PM ET/PT on Discovery.

Louisiana’s infamous Atchafalaya Basin, the murky waters are home to 10-foot-alligators and North America's only venomous water snake, the cottonmouth. Of course, there’s microscopic parasites to contend with that can end the season for anyone. Only the toughest survivalists in the world can make it to the top of the food-chain. With danger around every bush in the Bayou, survivalists will have to hunt, fish and forage and withstand the elements to earn the title of Legend.

In addition to large predators, survivalists must find ways to combat intense heat, dehydration, and unrelenting mosquitoes. At night, relentless rainstorms and swamp cold put them at risk for hypothermia. Tune in to see the best of the best struggle to survive mother nature and each other.

Forests might be the best tool humanity has to tackle climate change. Trees give cooling shade, absorb and store carbon dioxide (CO2), recycle water, and provide habitat for other plants and animals.
