Alone is a reality television show and is one of the most popular shows on the History channel.

The winner of the show gets a huge sum of $500,000. Even if you don’t make it for 100 days, you’d still get the cash prize if you are the sole survivor, the last standing of the show.
This show has 8 seasons so far. Alone season 8 episode 1 dropped on 3 June 2021 and is still ongoing. Over the years, the show has received lots of appreciation and love from the viewers. Alone season 9 is a highly anticipated series of the show and fans are curious to know its release date. Read the article till the end to find out more about your favourite show— its release date and many more. Without further ado let’s delve into details, shall we?
Is “Alone” pre-written?
Most survival shows are revealed to be staged but Alone, who also has the survivalist genre, seems to embrace its authenticity and theme. This is because most of the participants in this show are alone trying to survive on their own. Alone contestants record all the films themselves. The contestants are given hundreds of hours of camera time to production, the only time they come out from the remote locations is to change batteries and memory cards.
According to Larry Roberts, “It varied, but they did check on us regularly. We had a GPS tracker that we were required to carry, and they would check in with us at least nightly to make sure that we were OK. They would send a very simple text that just said, ‘Nightly check-in,’ and we would just hit, ‘OK,’ and send it,” he said to ODN.
Indeed Larry’s statement discloses many interesting details, proving the fact that the participants of the show deliver their every footage and they hunt and search for their food. It’s impossible to even think that the show has a pre-written storyline since the contestants are doing it all on their own.
The countdown for Alone Season 9
Tons of fans have been eagerly waiting for its release date but unfortunately, there’s no official announcement of the 9th season. Fans need to wait for some more time for the makers to declare for the ninth season. While you wait, you can watch season 8 of the latest episodes that are currently airing on the History Channel.
Filming locations of the show
All seasons of the show were filmed in numerous remote locations, most of them were on Indigenous-controlled soils, also including northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Nahuel Huapi National Park in Argentinian Patagonia, Northern Mongolia, the Northwest Territories’ Great Slave Lake, and interior British Columbia’s Chilko Lake.
As for the plot, it’s not really difficult to predict since the show has this one concept which most of us are familiar with. Usually, the show introduces a couple of contestants and sets them out in the wilderness all scattered. Each contestant has to perform a task formed by the show makers and give their everything to stay in the show. The ones who performed poorly are immediately eliminated from the show. The showmakers have been giving their best effort to come out with another great season after such an incredible success of the show’s eight-season.
