The following is a list of Survivorman episodes. The television series Survivorman consists of 8 seasons with a total of 51 episodes and 9 specials.[1] The show originally aired on the Outdoor Life Network.[2] It's unclear whether the dates of airing listed below are the Canadian or United States dates or a mix depending on the season. The show debuted in Canada in 2004.[3]

Season 6, which premiered in the US on April 1, 2015, is a break from the traditional series scenarios. It's focused on finding the mythical creature known as Bigfoot, rather than on outdoor survival odysseys as the name would otherwise imply.

Season 7 of Survivorman, which returned to the traditional format of lone survivor scenarios, premiered in the US on 7 November 2015, 10/9c PM.
