More than a year after the end of Man vs. Wild, adventurer and reality star Bear Grylls will return to TV on NBC on July 8.

Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls follows Grylls as he leads a non-stop extreme-survival journey that tests 10 teams of two as they venture into New Zealand's South Island. Grylls' wildly successful Man vs. Wild was canceled in March 2012 after a contractual dispute between the host and Discovery.
