‘Naked and Afraid XL‘ takes the crazy survivalist core of the original series, ‘Naked and Afraid,’ and turns it up a notch. The spin-off follows a similar pattern where survivalists are allowed to carry two items, as they have to get through a period in the wilderness. The cherry on the cake is that the series offers no prize whatsoever. The victory lies in the thrill of having survived the harsh environment. Obviously, the participants are not cut from the same cloth as others, since they willingly put themselves through such an ordeal. It is precisely why ‘Naked and Afraid XL’ has grown popular over the seasons. Curious to find out if ‘Naked and Afraid XL’ Season 7 is in the works? Here’s all you need to know.
Naked and Afraid XL Season 7 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
‘Naked and Afraid XL’ Season 6 started airing on May 17, 2020 and wrapped up on August 2, 2020. Currently, there’s been no word on Season 7 from Discovery Channel. However, Season 6 has been an immense success thanks to an additional twist. Naturally, the network won’t be stopping here and will be looking to capitalize on the momentum. Therefore, Season 7 stands an excellent chance of being renewed.
Now that we have cleared that out of the way, when will ‘Naked and Afraid XL’ Season 7 release? Well, once greenlit, the season typically takes a couple of months for the entire filming process. Thus delays in airing are not likely to happen. That said, 2020 has thrown every schedule out of the window with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As things stand, it is unlikely filming can begin before the last couple of months of the year. With that in mind, ‘Naked and Afraid XL’ Season 7 is likely to release in April or May 2021.
Who Could Be in Naked and Afraid XL Season 7?
The participant list for ‘Naked and Afraid XL’ Season 7 has not been announced yet. Some members might be previous survivalists, but we have to see who is brought on for the show. We will update you with more news, as and when the network makes an announcement.
What Could Naked and Afraid XL Season 7 Be About?
‘Naked and Afraid XL’ Season 7 will remain faithful to the core principles of the show. Participants will be allowed to carry two items and survive 40 days in extreme conditions. The remaining participants will be transported to the extraction point at the end of the period. There won’t likely be any prize, except for one’s satisfaction. Similarly, food, water, and shelter have to be scourged for or built. Intervention from the camera crews will only take place under extreme emergencies.
Apart from the basic rules, which we have seen in past seasons, Season 7 might have a theme. However, the network will have to announce that. The most exciting addition in Season 6, which we hope becomes a tradition, is the rule of elimination. If a survivor can’t pull their weight, others can eliminate them from the series. If this continues in Season 7, we are likely to see the new participants going the extra mile to last until the end.
