If you like survivalist shows, you’ll love Discovery’s new Ultimate Ninja Challenge. The all-new series puts groups of people into some of the most frigid and dangerous conditions.

Discovery is bringing an all-new survivalist show to your screens that you will certainly love. Ultimate Ninja Challenge puts survivalists into the harshest environments in small groups. Can they make Mother Nature work to their needs to get through the nights?

The first episode airs tomorrow night and we have an exclusive sneak peek of the first episode. If you thought you’d get a chance to see the survivalists at their bests or get a couple of nights to acclimatize, you’re mistaken. Ultimate Ninja Challenge puts the survivalists straight into some of the most frigid and dangerous conditions.

In the first clip, you’ll get a sense of the urgency they have. One small group is left to find shelter for the night where there literally isn’t any. All they have is ice that they need to turn into a shelter. It’s a race against time as the sun sets. Once that happens, the conditions are only going to get worse.

The idea for the challenge is for the nine warriors to become like the ancient Japanese ninjas. For 24 days, they must face the Pacific Northwest wilderness. Spirits will reach breaking point and bodies will do things never considered possible before. Their only methods of survival are those taught and practiced by the ancient ninjas. Those who make it through the challenge will get a final lesson from Jinichi Kawakami, who is the last known Japanese ninja.
