In an all-new season of Running Wild, high-octane celebrity guests face tough challenges, sending them to the very edge of what they can handle.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls: Rainn Wilson
Bear Grylls inspires Rainn Wilson to work for it by having him search for hidden caches in the aspen forest and alpine terrain of the La Sal mountains in a time-tested method of mountaineering training. Bear pushes Rainn to the limits of his endurance with dangerous rappels and dizzying climbs, but it’s not until they fish for food that things take a revealing turn in what is definitely the most naked RUNNING WILD in the history of the show!
Running Wild with Bear Grylls: Keegan-Michael
As if right out of a science fiction movie, Bear Grylls swoops in on a jetpack to pick up funnyman Keegan-Michael Key, kicking off their adrenaline-pumping adventure in the lava fields of Iceland. The “Key & Peele” star must put all jokes aside to face some of his greatest fears and conquer the lunar landscape. From a perilous rappel off a sheer 200-foot cliff to an endurance-testing jumar climb, Keegan-Michael is pushed beyond mental and physical limits in a truly life-changing experience.

But being a bona fide superhero doesn’t prepare Anthony for their final ascent up an icy waterfall, where even the smallest slip could lead to disaster.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls: Ashton Kutcher in the Coastal Jungles of Costa Rica
Ashton Kutcher joins Bear in the jungles of Costa Rica. As they traverse through rivers, swamps and jungles, Bear teaches Ashton essential survival skills including how to travel with fire, traverse a mangrove forest, and do a commando crawl.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls: Florence Pugh in the Volcanic Rainforests of Costa Rica
Bear takes actress Florence Pugh on an adventure into the volcanic rainforests of Costa Rica. They abseil out of a helicopter, traverse river rapids, and depth sound to determine whether it’s safe to dive from a towering cliff.

Still, nothing is more intimidating than the final challenge that leaves even Danica Patrick unnerved.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls: Terry Crews
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews joins Bear Grylls on an epic journey across Iceland’s treacherous terrain. Their adventure begins with a heli-ski ride into the mountains, where they must descend a volcanic scree slope without setting off a deadly rock avalanche. Survival is the name of the game for this NFL linebacker turned actor—from trying to cross freezing, violent floodwaters without drowning to finding warm shelter to avoid hypothermia—but nothing can prepare Terry for being tossed out of a plane at 12,000 feet!
