Alone Australia Season 2 Will Premiere 27 March on SBS

Published

on


The second season of the acclaimed survival series Alone Australia is scheduled to debut on SBS in late March. The upcoming season will showcase the journeys of 10 Australian survivalists as they confront the unforgiving and untamed landscapes of New Zealand’s South Island (Aotearoa’s Te Waipounamu). In this formidable setting, they will be subjected to a rigorous trial that will push their physical and mental limits to the extreme.

Similar to the first season, participants in Alone Australia will be completely isolated from the world and each other, stripped of modern possessions, contact, and comforts. They will have to self-document their experiences as they navigate the harsh conditions.

The last contestant standing at the end of 10 episodes will win a prize of $250,000 sponsored by SBS. The first season of Alone Australia was a breakout hit in 2023 and became the most successful original show in SBS history. Viewers were drawn to its real, unfiltered, and authentic portrayal of survival.

The second season promises even higher stakes as participants face the challenges presented by the breathtaking but brutal South Island of New Zealand. They will have to overcome dehydration, starvation, relentless rain, snow, freezing subantarctic fronts, strong winds, tree avalanches, earthquakes, landslides, and more.

Without camera crews or help from the production team, contestants must rely on their own resourcefulness and survival skills. They can only use 10 carefully selected survival items and the natural resources available to them. For the first time in Alone Australia history, participants are allowed to hunt with bow and arrow for food.

One of the unique aspects of Alone Australia is that contestants are unaware of who remains in the competition or how many people are left. This adds an additional psychological challenge as they battle their own emotional and physical limits.

To enhance viewers’ experience with each episode, SBS Audio has launched a companion podcast called Alone Australia: The Podcast. Hosted by Season 1 winner Gina Chick and SBS Presenter Darren Mara, they will discuss each episode in detail with special guests, including Season 2 cast members, Season 1 alumni, series creators, and fans of the show.

Alone Australia: The Podcast will be available on SBS On Demand, SBS Australia on YouTube, the SBS Audio app, and other podcast platforms. The show will also be accessible to a wider audience with subtitles in Simplified Chinese, Arabic, Vietnamese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean. It will also have audio description for blind or vision-impaired audiences.

Don’t miss the highly anticipated second season of Alone Australia when it premieres on Wednesday 27 March at 7.30pm on SBS.
