Bear Grylls is known for his gnarly survival skills and stomach-turning eating habits. He has had a few of his own shows on TV like the Discovery Channel show, Man vs. Wild as well as Running Wild With Bear Grylls which saw him take celebrities on survival missions in the wild.
Now, Bear is bursting onto Netflix with his own show called You vs. Wild. This new Netflix show will be a first of its kind, by being an interactive live-action show where audiences can make key decisions in Bear Grylls’s survival.
In this interactive series, you’ll make key decisions to help Bear Grylls survive, thrive and complete missions in the harshest environments on Earth.
The 8-part show will let you accompany Bear Grylls on all sorts of crazy survival adventures, allowing you to make important decisions for him and see how it turns out. But don’t worry, you can’t kill him by making a bad choice. In the announcement trailer, we see Bear Grylls somewhere on an ice mountain (when is he not?) asking the camera (you) to choose between two plans of action – walk tentatively or crawl.
This new interactive show from Netflix comes after it has tested out other animated shows like Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and a Minecraft show in partnership with Telltale Games. This new interactive show is similar to Netflix’s interactive movie, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, but a little less dark.
We suspect that this new Bear Grylls show from Netflix is a sign of more interactive shows to come, giving audiences a unique, immersive experience.
Are you keen to watch this new show when it becomes available on Netflix on 10 April 2019?
