Worst-Case Scenario was a survival skills television series hosted by Bear Grylls on the Discovery Channel.[1] Bear Grylls showed how to survive in different natural cataclysms, man-made disasters, accidents, and other non-standard situations. In this series, Grylls used skills he learned in the 21 SAS (also known as the 21 Regiment Special Air Service)[2] which include self-defense, evasive driving, parkour, urban survival, and wilderness survival.

Like the earlier Worst-Case Scenarios TV show, it was based on the Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook and other related titles and merchandise.

In March 2012, Discovery Channel terminated its contract with Grylls due to a contractual dispute.[3]
