What’s This TV Show About?
A competitive CBS reality TV series, Survivor is hosted by Jeff Probst and features a group of castaways who try to outwit, outlast, and outplay each other. The players share the ultimate goal of hanging on until the very end, in hopes that they will be named the sole survivor and will win the $1,000,000 prize money. In cycle 38, Survivor: Edge of Extinction, the show welcomes 14 new castaways and four returnees, for a total of 18 competitors. In a twist new to this season, after players are voted out, they will get a choice between going home or to the “Edge of Extinction,” where they face tough challenges for a chance to return the game.

Will Survivor be cancelled or renewed for season 39? This series is still a ratings winner for CBS, so cancellation is highly unlikely, barring some unforeseen disaster. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens, because one of these days, the Tiffany Network is going to vote this show off their schedule.
