Survivor Officially Renewed For Seasons 35 and 36


CBS officially announces renewals for returning series for the 2017-2018 season, including SURVIVOR.

Today CBS announced early renewals of 18 returning television series for the 2017/18 season – which includes another cycle of long-running reality show SURVIVOR. While ratings have dipped in recent seasons, the hit reality series still consistently tops its Wednesday night timeslot, beating competition from all other major broadcast networks. Jeff Probst will return as host.

Seasons 35 and 36 will film between April – July on the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, the same location that housed production for last year’s Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X and the currently-airing Survivor: Game Changers. Inside Survivor understands that both seasons will feature all new players. Season 35 will air in Fall 2017, while Survivor 36 will likely premiere February/March 2018.

Below is a full list of the returning series renewals:

  • THE BIG BANG THEORY

CBS will finish the current season as America’s Most Watched Network for the 14th time in 15 years. The Network will announce its new fall 2017-2018 schedule on Wednesday, May 17 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
