Although Season 2 of History’s popular survival series Alone is only just premiering tomorrow, April 21, the network has gone ahead and renewed the show for Season 3, it was announced today. For the next season, the series will move from Vancouver to South America.

Not changing much are the basics of the competition: Ten hardcore survivalists are placed alone in the wilderness, and the contestants have one mission: to stay alive. There are no camera crews, no teams, and no gimmicks. At stake is a $500,000 cash prize awarded to the person who can last the longest.

Equipped only with limited gear, their wilderness experience, and cameras to self-document their journeys, these brave men and women are completely separated from one another in harsh, unforgiving terrain. To survive, they must find food and water, build shelters and fend off predators. They will face extreme isolation, psychological distress, and treacherous environmental conditions as they descend into the unknown.

POLL: WHO WILL WIN ALONE SEASON 2?

“The success of Alone truly speaks to the fact that there is simply nothing else like it on television.” said Paul Cabana, Executive Vice President and Head of Programming of History. “Season 2 truly takes the series to the next level and gives us the confidence to trigger Season 3 immediately.”

Filming on Season 3 begins in Patagonia, South America, next month.

Alone Season 2 airs on History Thursdays at 9pm ET/PT beginning April 21.

  1. I can beat any person that I go against. It’s not survival of the body it’s survival of the mind. I challenge any producer to take me and put me on an island and I will survive past any person left standing. I have the heart of a bear and the skin of a rhino.

  2. Larry will forever stand out as the most disgusting contestant on Alone.

    His wife and kids surely feared his wrath all their lives! Can you imagine calling this man husband or father?

    You get the idea that if he could, he would burn all the forests on earth, slaughter every animal to extinction, and murder every human being. This guy goes postal daily. He’s an ultra scary man. He can’t produce a single sentence without 4 profanities. He’s completely unglued.

    It’s disgusting that The History Channel continues to show any part of his pitiful journey. It ruins this beautiful show.

  3. wow applied for season three web sight said that apps. were still being taken but if they are to start filming next month than contestants must already be chosen. all i heard when i sent in my app. was that producer would get back to me. never heard anything one way or another bummer.

  4. I want to know how to get entered into the contest. It would be more of an adventure/ camping trip than a challenge.

  5. I am sorry to hear the Alone series is moving to Patagonia for season 3.
    One of the appeals of the show is that it is set on Vancouver Island. I think the Northen tip of the island is an incredibly challenging area. I have been to Vancouver Island and traveled most of its length, except the very most northern end. It is awesome in its beauty, terrifying in its dangers and
    magnificent in its stature. A true test of inner strength and courage.
    I am very happy to see women in this year’s challengers.
    Good luck to all the contestants. Warm regards, Kate
