Host Jeff Probst will be on the go again. CBS has renewed the Survivor TV show for both a 43rd and a 44th cycle which will air during the network’s 2022-23 broadcast season. The 42nd season kicks off tonight.
A reality competition series, the Survivor TV show is hosted, as always, by Jeff Probst. The 42nd edition was once again filmed over the course of 26 days (instead of the usual 39) in Fiji. Split into three teams called VATI Tribe (Green), TAKU Tribe (Orange), and IKA Tribe (Blue), the 18 contestants compete for a $1 million prize and the title of Sole Survivor. The castaways are Jenny Kim, Chanelle Howell, Lydia Meredith, Mike Turner, Daniel Strunk, Hai Giang, Marya Sherron, Lindsay Dolashewich, Maryanne Oketch, Jackson Fox, Omar Zaheer, Jonathan Young, Drea Wheeler, Tori Meehan, Swati Goel, Rocksroy Bailey, Romeo Escobar, and Zach Wurtenberger.
The renewal comes as no surprise. Survivor remains one of the network’s highest-rated unscripted shows and typically airs two cycles each broadcast season. Casting was already underway for season 43 ahead of the announcement.
Today, the network also renewed Secret Celebrity Renovation (season two), The Amazing Race (season 34), and Tough As Nails (season five) for the 2022-23 television season. The latter show was renewed for a yet-to-air fourth season back in April 2021.
