You knew he couldn’t stay away for long: A little under two years since the end of Survivorman, Canadian survival guru Les Stroud returns with a new Discovery show—Beyond Survival. This time, Les will travel the world to hang out and learn ancient survival techniques from some of the most isolated and primitive tribes in the world. Based on the trailer, the result looks, well, pretty kickass.

Check it out:

Welcome back, Les—we’ve missed you. Based on that poisoning incident in the trailer, it seems like you’ll still suffer for our education. But look on the bright side: At least this time it looks like you’ll have company.

Beyond Survival premieres Friday, August 27 at 10 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel
