And by looking at the release pattern of the previous seasons, we expect ‘Naked and Afraid’ season 12 to premiere sometime in late 2020, on Discovery.

Naked and Afraid Season 12 Cast: Host and Contestants

Voice talent Michael Brown has been successfully hosting and narrating the series since its inception. With a booming voice, Michael provides the viewers with important information and insights about the locations and contestants, while also explaining the immediate dangers, they are exposed to. There is a high possibility that he might reprise his role as the host/narrator in season 12.

As it’s a reality show, the contestants change with every season. However, in season 11, we have seen the return of ‘Naked and Afraid’ and ‘Naked and Afraid XL’ veterans like Luke McLauglin, Gary Golding, Lacey Jones, and Max Djenohan, as they embark upon their solo adventures in the wild. It also features several special episodes, comprising twin sisters Amber and Serena, twin brothers Warren and Thoma, Kim Kelly, and All-Star alums Sarah and Trent.

Season 12 might feature returning contestants from previous seasons of the show and its spin-offs. it can also include some brand-new additions.

What can Naked and Afraid Season 12 be About?

The show introduced a never-seen-before format in season 11. Instead of featuring a cast with just fresh faces, season 11 chronicles the activities of a cast comprising seasoned contestants/veterans of the show and/or its spin-offs. Not only that, the members are also directed to face the 21-day challenge all alone, instead of pairs and groups. Throughout the season, we witness the solo adventures of Luke, Gary, Lacey, Max, and other contestants in the Amazon jungles, Belize, the Balkan Mountains, and the African Savannah.

In season 12, we can expect the show to feature expert survivalists who might be stranded on the most isolated areas around the globe, all alone, with nothing to survive but their will, skills, and determination. The show might follow them as they hunt for food, find places to rest in, and save themselves from the perils of nature and terrifying creatures that loom in the wild.
