Wavelength Entertainment, an award-winning full-service international media production company, in collaboration with ITV and Creative Saskatchewan, are pleased to announce that season 10 of The HISTORY® Channel’s popular nonfiction survival series Alone will take place in Northern Saskatchewan. Alone premieres on The HISTORY® Channel in Canada on June 8, 2023 from 10:00 pm to 11:30 pm EST, and in the US on June 8, 2023, from 9:00 pm – 10:30 pm EST.
Alone features 10 survivalists who are dropped off in undisclosed, remote locations and equipped with just 10 survival tools, and enough camera gear to self-document their experiences. The survivalist who endures the longest, facing total isolation, punishing weather, and deadly predators, will win the $500,000 grand prize. No camera crews. No gimmicks. Alone is the ultimate test of human will.
This season, 10 contestants fight to survive in the Northern Saskatchewan wilderness. Welcomed by the Woodland Cree First Nation, Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation, and the governing bodies of Saskatchewan, shooting Alone along Reindeer Lake landed the newest participants in an extremely rugged and remote location among approximately 43,000 black bears, a strong wolf and moose population, and some of the largest fish ever caught on the show. The Arctic winds and the waves they produced along with cold and snow of a true Saskatchewan winter put the grit of the participants to the test.
Previous seasons of Alone have been filmed across a range of remote locations, usually on Indigenous-controlled lands, including northern Vancouver Island, Chilko Lake in interior British Columbia, Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories as well as Patagonia in Argentina and Northern Mongolia.
“Wavelength Entertainment is thrilled to be in partnership with Leftfield Pictures/ITV America on a series as popular as ‘Alone’. It was a beautiful collaboration that will inevitably lead to other opportunities for our company and the Province. ‘Alone’ has captivated millions of viewers around the world since its debut season in 2015 and it was a pleasure to help bring it to Saskatchewan,” says Jeff Stecyk, Principal/Executive Producer for Wavelength Entertainment.
Season 10 of Alone was a recipient of Creative Saskatchewan’s Feature Film and TV Production Grant program, with the agency committing $818,534 to the production. “This investment is expected to see an estimated $4.3 million of positive economic outputs back into Saskatchewan.” says Erin Dean, CEO of Creative Saskatchewan, “We invest in productions with a market trigger and solid business and marketing strategies in place that create significant ripple effects for Saskatchewan people. The team at Wavelength have done exactly that, and we can’t wait to watch the first episode!” Alone has a Saskatchewan spend of over $2.3 million, mainly in the northern region.
A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for both the series and the format for Alone.
