According to the network, the upcoming season of “Running Wild” features Grylls going all-out with the celebrity guests, who will push themselves beyond their limits by leaving civilization behind for a no-holds-barred journey through the most extreme environments on the planet.

“The ‘Running Wild’ team is so excited that our adventure series has really found its home on National Geographic with our fifth season,” Grylls said. “I’m so proud that each Hollywood A-lister, who joins me on these journeys through the wild, always has such a life-affirming experience. That’s what the wild does; it often takes us to the edge but then rewards courage and determination with a pride that money can’t buy.”

This season of “Brain Games” finds Key, world-famous mentalist Lior Suchard, and field correspondent and science communicator Cara Santa Maria guiding celebrities through a series of experiments, illusions and demonstrations to help them realize their untapped brainpower. “Brain Games” S is produced by Magical Elves with Alfred Street Industries.
