Chris Hemsworth has a new TV show and it’s something that he hasn’t done before.
Called Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, the six-episode program is part documentary and part reality TV series that sees the Thor actor doing some extreme tests and challenges to help discover how humans can live better for longer.
What is Limitless with Chris Hemsworth about?
From National Geographic and Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth explores the question “What if you could combat aging and discover the full potential of the human body?”
The show’s official description notes that “new scientific research is shattering conventional wisdom about the human body and offering fascinating insights into how we can all unlock our body’s superpowers to fight illness, perform better and even reverse the aging process.” These new discoveries are put to the test by Hemsworth himself, who, despite being in peak superhero condition, is on a personal mission to learn how to improve his health, strength, and intellect further into his later years.
In Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, the actor undergoes a series of epic trials and life-threatening challenges in order to understand the limits of the human body. He’ll learn firsthand how we can live better for longer by discovering ways to regenerate damage, maximize strength, build resilience, supercharge memory, and confront mortality.
Described as entertaining, immersive and life-changing, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth promises to rewrite the rulebook on living better for longer.
