Bear Grylls Canned by Discovery Channel

The upcoming season of Man Vs. Wild looks like it will be the last. At least as far as Discovery Channel is concerned. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Discovery has severed its ties with Bear Grylls after the reality adventure star allegedly failed to complete two contracted projects for the channel.

“Due to a continuing contractual dispute with Bear Grylls, Discovery has terminated all current productions with him,” a Discovery flack told THR. Grylls’ management had no immediate comment.

Grylls is a part-time Malibu resident who also lives with his family on a private island in Wales. Something tells us he’s going to be spending a little more time in Malibu in the near future, trying to deal with this fallout.
