What happens when 16 people are dropped off in the middle of a freezing wilderness and only one of them can win a grand prize of $1,000,000 just for surviving? That’s the whole idea of Netflix’s Outlast in a nutshell. Here is what we know so far about Netflix’s Outlast reality survival series including a list of all cast members as well as confirmed release date. Read to find out. 

Netflix: Outlast

According to the show’s official description on Netflix, Outlast is a raw survival competition series where 16 contestants will compete against each other in the Alaskan wilderness. The grand prize is one million dollars.

  • Interestingly, the show’s participants are all ‘lone wolves’, who prefer working alone rather than in teams. However, the primary rule is that they must be part of a team to win.
  • The show revolves around the concept that the enemy is not mother nature, it’s human nature. Netflix has dropped a new trailer for Outlast and the upcoming survival series promises to be quite an intense adventure.

  • The 16 players will be split into four different teams who will set up camps in different locations. The contestants will have to get out of their comfort zone of working alone and collaborate as a team to win the final $1,000,000 prize.
  • In Netflix’s Outlast, players can change their teams at any point. This spices up things as we can expect some cold betrayals, unexpected alliances, and a lot of constant tension.
  • Unlike other reality shows, there is no scope to vote contestants out of the competition. Instead, the only way out is to give up.

Hollywood actor Jason Bateman serves as an executive producer on Netflix’s Outlast, as the survival series is produced by his Aggregate Films. Outlast has a confirmed release date for streaming on Netflix from March 10, 2023.
