Survivor isn’t going away anytime soon. Recently, host Jeff Probst told Entertainment Weekly the CBS TV show has been renewed through season 38.
The long-running competition series, which just wrapped its 36th season, debuted in 2000 and has been a consistent ratings performer for CBS during its nearly 20 years on the air.
In the interview, Probst revealed Survivor has already filmed season 37 and is about to shoot season 38, but how much longer will the CBS series run for? Probst says as long as the fans are still watching, Survivor will continue:
We’re actually in the middle of our 19th year. We’ve already shot our 37th season. We’re about to shoot our 38th starting in five days. So we just keep going … The audience will continue to watch so long as they believe we are continuing to try to keep the show fresh.”
What do you think? Do you watch Survivor? How many more seasons do you think the show should run?
