Netflix has set a new interactive series starring Bear Grylls: “You vs. Wild,” which has an eight-episode order, debuts on April 10.
In “You vs. Wild,” viewers join survival expert Grylls on exciting adventures all over the world. Dense jungles, towering mountains, brutal deserts, and mysterious forests await, with tough decisions around every corner, per Netflix. In the interactive adventure series, viewers will make all the decisions and whether or not Bear succeeds or fails is totally up to you.
“I’m so proud to deliver this first-of-its-kind live-action interactive series, really giving viewers an all access pass to explore the world and its landscapes in my boots,” Grylls said. “The stakes are high in this one!”
Grylls, Chris Grant, Drew Buckley, Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Rob Buchta, and Delbert Shoopman are executive producers on the Electus and Bear Grylls Ventures series. Ben Simms will direct.

Netflix rode its “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style movie “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” to big viewership numbers and large fanfare. “Bandersnatch” debuted on Dec. 28.
Grylls’ other survival series, “Running Wild With Bear Grylls,” where he actually gets to make the decisions, recently moved from NBC to Nat Geo.
