Australian Survivor is inviting back 24 of the game’s ultimate players for what promises to be the biggest season yet: Australian Survivor: All Stars.

In what is probably the worst kept secret in television, Network 10 confirmed the much-rumoured All Stars season at the end of tonight’s Champions vs. Contenders II finale. The season, which will see the return of fan favourites, devious villains, loved heroes, and everyone in-between, is set to air in early 2020.

“Over the past four sensational seasons of Australian Survivor, we have watched almost 100 fantastic contestants play the game,” said Network 10 Chief Content Officer, Beverley McGarvey. “Now with the next All Stars season, we have the exciting opportunity to invite some of our most memorable players back for another chance to take home the title of Sole Survivor.

“Australian viewers have embraced the game play, the physical challenges, and the passionate characters that makes Survivor so unique and compelling,” McGarvey continued. “We can’t wait to return in 2020 with more twists and turns from the All Stars cast.”

This year’s season of Champions vs. Contenders was a massive success for Network 10, breaking all sorts of audience records across TV, online, and social media. Its TV audience (841,000) is up seven per cent year on year and its 10 Play broadcast video on-demand audience (81,000) is up 35% year on year.

“We are immensely proud that Australian Survivor has resonated with viewers and really hit its stride,” said Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Carl Fennessy. “We look forward to bringing together a phenomenal All Star cast to play this incredible game.”

    Martin why isn’t there an article on the All-Star cast yet, isn’t it already pretty much leaked…?
    (I tried googling it up and ended up on a “sucks” forum where they already discussed who got voted out – ugh! please keep feeding me “safe” spoilers here)

    • I can’t do spoilers for Australian Survivor because I receive press releases (etc) from Network Ten.

        ah fair enough, thanks for the explanation 🙂

    I feel like it’s too early to do All-Stars

    As it stands they’ll be looking for six people from each season assuming the traditional 24 players. They could get away with Luke and Russell as returnees because of the theme but trying to say that we have game changers or all-stars in a game that is still evolving feels too much like a marketing gimmick and not enough of a “okay, let’s see how our game is shaping up”. At FTC last season Baden and Pia started touching on how the game has to play differently from the US game because of nuances in Australian culture, and honestly the F2 and no F4 Firemaking change optimal strategies a lot.

    I’m all for Australian Survivor building up to an All-Stars but we need to establish our game first.

    Now if they just secure a licensing deal where it can easily be watched outside of Australia… Are you listening, CBS All Access?
