As of writing, Discovery has not announced a release date for a fourteenth season of “Naked and Afraid.” Additionally, Premiere Date reports that Discovery has not officially renewed the show for another season, but that a renewal could come soon.
Discovery’s silence on the future of “Naked and Afraid” isn’t too out of the ordinary, as Season 13 only ended this past September, and filming for the next season might not have begun yet. Furthermore, past seasons of “Naked and Afraid” have cycled between spring and summer releases, and it’s possible that Discovery will announce a new season in early or late 2022. However, Discovery also may be looking to fully transition “Naked and Afraid” into a dating show.
In May, The Wrap reported that Discovery ordered a reality dating show based on “Naked and Afraid” called “Naked and Afraid of Love.” The series began airing on Discovery+ in late August and has already been renewed for a second season, per Deadline, indicating the network is confident about the show’s ratings and performance. While the future of “Naked and Afraid” is uncertain, here’s hoping that both shows can thrive under the network.
