BIO CHANNEL’S HIT ORIGINAL SERIES ‘I SURVIVED…’ AND
‘I SURVIVED…BEYOND AND BACK’ RETURN WITH ALL-NEW EPISODES ON
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 23 AT 9PM ET & 10PM ET

BIO Channel’s original franchises “I Survived…” returns with new episodes and “I Survived…Beyond and Back” premieres season two on Sunday, October 23 at 9PM ET/8PM CT/10PM PT and 10PM ET/9PM CT/11PM PT respectively.

Each episode of the critically-acclaimed “I Survived…” documents two or three life-altering stories in which survivors explain – in their own words – how they overcame unbelievable circumstances and what carried them through the experience that ultimately changed their lives forever.

New episodes of “I Survived…” include stories from a store manager and his staff who are held-up and shot by two intruders; an 18-year-old has both arms torn off in an accident on the family farm; a young couple are shot execution-style at a reservoir on their first date; two strangers’ lives collide when they are caught in a deadly train crash; and a young woman is abducted and put through a terrifying eight-day ordeal by a man who forces her to live inside a metal box.

“I Survived… Beyond and Back” reveals one of life’s greatest mysteries by profiling the extraordinary stories of people who have literally flat-lined and come back to life. The series combines the compelling and emotionally gripping stories of “I Survived…” with the unexplainable experiences some people have when they are pronounced legally dead. Through first-person accounts and testimony from the medical personnel and family members who were present, “I Survived… Beyond and Back” will not only explore the survivor’s encounter with death, but also the ways in which it has changed their outlook on life forever.

This season of “I Survived…Beyond and Back” will features stories from a man who dies in a car crash and believes he visits hell; a man reveals an encounter with Moses after dying from a heart attack; a young woman falls from her horse and sees heaven; doctors work for three hours to bring a young mother back after she dies giving birth to twins, meanwhile she is visited by two small figures; an 8 year old girl envisions traveling to the Coliseum when she dies after being hit by a car.
