Premiere Date Announced for Survivor Season 36


CBS announce the premiere date of Survivor: Ghost Island.

CBS have revealed their Winter scheduling plans for 2018, including several primetime premiere dates. The reality heavy line-up features the return of Survivor and The Amazing Race, plus the first ever U.S. edition of Celebrity Big Brother, which will air over three weeks on a condensed schedule.

But most important to Survivor fans is the air date of the upcoming thirty-sixth season, Survivor: Ghost Island, which will premiere Wednesday, February 28 at 8:00 PM with a special two-hour episode. The season, which was filmed in Fiji earlier this year, will feature twenty brand new castaways vying for the $1 million prize.

“The next installment of the Emmy Award-winning SURVIVOR taking place in Fiji debuts with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, Feb. 28 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), after BIG BROTHER and THE AMAZING RACE conclude. It moves to its regular Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on March 7.”

It is unclear at this point if the premiere will feature two separate one-hour episodes – much like we saw with Survivor: Game Changers – or if it will be a two-hour feature length episode with just one elimination.

Inside Survivor revealed the theme for season 36 earlier this year, as well as the 20 new castaways who will be competing.

Stay tuned to Inside Survivor over the coming months for more news and features regarding season 36.
