CBS Announces Season 34 Theme – Survivor: Game Changers


Twenty former castaways are set to change the game in the thirty-fourth edition of the long-running reality series.

Jeff Probst confirmed the theme for Season 34, which Inside Survivor first reported back in June, during tonight’s live reunion show for Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X. The new season, Survivor: Game Changers – Mamanuca Islands, will feature returning players and premieres March 8, 2016, in its regular Wednesday night timeslot from 8-9PM ET/PT.

The season, which was filmed in Fiji, will see twenty former castaways return in another attempt to outwit, outplay and outlast the competition. It marks the second all-returnee cast in under two years; CBS aired Survivor: Cambodia – Second Chance in September 2015, a cast made up of past players voted onto the season by viewers. Unlike the Second Chance competitors, the Game Changers cast was picked specifically by CBS/SEG.

The cast, some of who were in the audience during tonight’s reunion show,  is made up of second, third, and even four-time Survivor players, including former winners JT Thomas, Sandra Diaz-Twine (two-time winner!), and Tony Vlachos. Alongside those are fan favorites such as Ciera Eastin, Cirie Fields, Malcolm Freberg, and Ozzy Lusth. Last season’s runner-up Aubry Bracco also returns for a second shot, as well as Caleb Reynolds who was medically evacuated that same season. Also taking part are two castaways from this most recent season, Millennials vs. Gen X, Michaela Bradshaw who was shockingly eliminated just before the merge, and Zeke Smith who was taken out in ninth place due to being seen as a threat to win.

Stay tuned to Inside Survivor over the coming months for all your Survivor: Game Changers news and features, including cast retrospectives and interviews with former castaways who have played with the Game Changers cast.

    Tony for first boot please. I was the true game changer, without me Tony would’ve been an inconsequential early-merge boot.

    The 2 peeps from the recently concluded season have a big advantage here.
    Since season 34 has already been filmed that means McKayla and Zeke are
    the only 2 nobody has seen play before. They are both uber strong with Zeke
    commanding the 5 person army at final 10 and McKayla learning from her
    aggressive leadership mistake(s) seemingly as it was happening.

    For the love of all things holy, please show the woman some respect and spell her name correctly. It’s Michaela, if you’re unsure, scroll up to the article you are commenting on, it’s right there, or copy and paste. This isn’t rocket science. Just think of the masculine version of her name, Michael, now add an A, and voila, you have the correct spelling of her name. Sorry for the rant, just a pet peeve of mine. Thanks
