Who will be last standing in the last frontier?
That’s the question Netflix poses in its new reality series, Outlast. Only in this survival show, set in the Alaskan wilderness, you literally can’t go it alone. Contestant Jill Ashock teased what to expect from the eight-episode social experiment, which dropped March 10.
“I know people think that they’re getting ready to watch just another survival wilderness kind of reality TV show,” she exclusively told E! News on March 9. “They’re in for a rude awakening.”
As the private investigator put it: “Outlast is like a horror film, Hunger Games and all the other survival shows thrown together and put in a blender with a lot of bitter sour and vodka and they churn it all up and just shove it down our throats. And that’s what the viewers are gonna get.”
The series—from executive producer Jason Bateman—stars 16 nature lovers with varying degrees of survival skills. While there are no outright eliminations, the twist to Outlast is that to remain in the game (and eventually win some of the $1 million prize) you must be part of a team.
