Solitary 4.0 will air on Fox Reality before the channel goes off the air

Although the Fox Reality Channel is done and will be replaced at the end of March by Nat Geo Wild in most places, the network will still air the fourth season of its competition/torture series.

Solitary 4.0 taped during a week late last summer, but with the end of the channel, its future was up in the air, and plans considered included airing it online only. But the channel announced that it will return next Saturday, airing at 10 p.m. ET, after the finale of Seducing Cindy, the dating series starring Cindy Margolis.
