In 2016 Channel 4 began filming on a reality TV show called Eden. The premise was that 23 people would be left in the Scottish wilderness to fend for themselves with only a small amount of food and supplies. They would be filmed 24/7 for a year as they struggled to form a new society.

However, the program was mysteriously pulled after just four episodes with no explanation. Until now. 

Channel 4 has announced a new show titled Eden: Paradise Lost which is set to air the footage that originally caused the station to drop the project. 

It has since been revealed that only ten contestants managed to remain for the entire year with others leaving due to health concerns. 

Producer Liz Foley told The Times UK that things "went quite dark" and that "it was quite a shock". Reportedly members of the camp were starving and bullying each other as a Lord Of The Flies mentality took over. 

We'll find out for sure when Eden: Paradise Lost airs for five consecutive nights starting this Monday, August 7th.
