There is a lot of buzz recently around Les Stroud and the Survivorman show. Fans are wanting to know when they’ll get their next dose of the best (and most real) reality show on TV. We hadn’t heard much from Les since January when he spoke about pitching several series to network TV including Survivorman Ten Days, Survivorman and Son, and Survivorman Bigfoot. Since then, silence. There has been a lot of speculation, but no hard evidence until yesterday when Les posted on Facebook:
“I should mention also – I have now signed to produce 8 new episodes (in addition to the new season i am shooting right now): Survivorman; the Secrets of Survival”
Which leads us to believe there will be two different shows. It’s still unclear whether or not this will be for Canadian TV only, but I have to imagine that they wouldn’t deprive the American fan base. Les also posted this video of being stranded at the border on the way to his next Survivorman shoot, which means that the show is being produced as we speak.
This is exciting news Les, even a short video of you eating your breakfast is something for us to chew on. So now we wait, and hope, and pray that Discovery has something better to offer in 2014 than “Moonshiners” or the other garbage we’ve been forced to watch. One can only guess what the Secrets of Survival will bring. We’ve already seen the unflattering side of survival, watching Stroud eat bugs and run around naked. I’m not sure what other secrets he has left. But he did elaborate just a little, saying
“The Secrets of Survival will dissect all the hows, whys and whats of what it takes to survive.”
As soon as this next series premieres, i’ll be there to watch just as I have been before. So thank you Survivorman for getting out there and bringing us some good ol’ adventure television.
We predict to see some form of a Survivorman show premiere this fall on Discovery.
