SiberiaDescription: A group of international contestants agree to test their will to survive and their sanity in an unforgiving Siberian wilderness for the chance to win $500,000.  When 16 contestants from around the world are dropped off by helicopter in an ancient Siberian wilderness with only the clothes on their backs, they find themselves in an extreme survival adventure and social experiment with no rules or help from producers or the outside world. Leaders and followers emerge, and the contestants’ survival is constantly being challenged in unexpected and literally life-threatening ways. Everything is on the line as they struggle against the elements – human and inhuman, natural and unnatural – in a place where misfortune abounds, and the fragile fabric of their new society is woven and torn apart from day to day. It is a study of humans under great stress who are relentlessly tested with sudden, frightening events and situations gone horribly wrong. NBC.com

Where Does It Stand? This series landed on the NBC Summer 2013 schedule with little promotion, and not surprisingly it never performed well in the ratings. The network allowed the series to air out its episodes and then said nothing about it, leading to the assumption that they had quietly cancelled it even though it ended on a major cliffhanger. However, Siberia came to NBC prefunded and its production company owns the rights to the show. They have continued to air the first season across international markets where it has continued to build up a following. According to the cast members (who are still making appearances to promote the show), a second season is still a possibility even though it has been two years since the first season originally aired in the United States. Fans should keep up hope and contact production company Sierra/Engine Television to let them know they want more seasons of the show.  (More on Siberia at this link.)
