Discovery Channel Parts Ways With Man Vs. Wild Star Bear Grylls

Disagreement on future programming leads to star losing his job

Discovery Channel Parts Ways With Man Vs. Wild Star Bear Grylls

Adventurer Bear Grylls will thrill us no more on Discovery's Man Vs. Wild after the network ended their relationship with the English star.

The Discovery channel reportedly attributed the split to a contractual dispute and severed all their ties with the action man.

"Unfortunately, Bear and Discovery have not been able to come to mutual agreement on new programming, and he disagrees with Discovery's decision to terminate current productions. Bear has loved the 'Man vs. Wild' journey and looks forward to producing further cutting edge content again soon for his loyal audience," said Grylls' publicist Heather Krug, according to Reuters.

Season six of the show was aired last summer. Love him or hate him, he sure got up to some crazy stuff in the wild.
