The return of Naked and Afraid is on the horizon.

PEOPLE can exclusively announce that an all-new season of the hit series premieres Sunday on Discovery and will stream concurrently on discovery+. In an exclusive sneak peek, a pair of contestants kick off their journey to conquer the survival challenge — in the nude, of course.

"We set up camp, got a fire started," the male contestant says. "Great partner — knowledgeable, resourceful. This is a picture-perfect great start."

"Feeling awesome about our first day," the female contestant adds. "Pretty successful so far."

But things take a turn at nightfall, when a heavy downpour commences and floods the shelter they built.

"We're f-----. I mean, honestly, we're f-----," he declares. "This is going to be the worst night ever. I didn't sign up for this."

This season of Naked and Afraid will follow survivalists from the bug-infested rainforests of Ecuador and the frigid peaks of the Colorado Rockies, to the apex predator hunting grounds of Namibia and the scorching desert of the U.S./Mexico border. In each location, the contestants must endure hostile climates, lurking predators and a scarce food and water supply while undergoing the ultimate test of human endurance and willpower.

The new season of Naked and Afraid premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on Discovery, and will also stream on discovery+.
