Season 2

Daredevil Bear Grylls returns for a second season of seeking out extreme survival challenges in some of the most inhospitable places on Earth.

He'll experience hair-raising drops into the infamous Viper Pits on the Camino Reale in Panama, disembowelling a dead camel to seek food and shelter in the Sahara, attempting to survive the extreme cold of Siberia and even facing his biggest fears as he fights his way out of crevasses in Patagonia.

Along the way there are plenty of gut-wrenching moments as he snacks on everything from a scorpion to a vine snake.

Bear builds on his survival knowledge as he encounters indigenous experts from the Berbers in the Sahara to tribesmen with an encyclopaedic knowledge of just what it takes to survive in such harsh environments.
