‘Survivorman’ is back!

After a four-year hiatus, Les Stroud is getting back behind the camera and out into the woods for a new season of his television program “Survivorman.”

The show last went into production in 2008. He’s done several projects since then, but he’s most remembered for going out into wilderness areas, camera gear in tow, alone and putting himself in survival situations to show what you can do if you’re caught in a similar predicament.

Stroud’s show is just one of many pitting man against nature in survival situations. Bear Grylls’ wildly popular “Man vs. Wild” had a similar format, and other programs have followed suit. But with the exception of “Alone in the Wild,” none have featured the host also being the sole member of the crew and completely alone.

  1. I’m glad to hear it. Personally I liked Stroud’s approach a lot more than Grylls’. Grylls’ is entertaining and goes for shock value while Stroud’s is just a lot more down to earth and realistic.
