The series’ freshman season finale airs Thursday night.
“Alone is a groundbreaking series that has truly connected with audiences,” said Paul Cabana, executive VP and head of programming for History. “In today’s crowded landscape, it is incredibly rewarding to see a new series break through the clutter and grow week after week.”
