Survivor Second Chance Filming To Begin Next Week

Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance is scheduled to begin filming on May 31, the same day on which Survivor debuted on television 15 years ago. The shoot will last for 39 days and the cast is expected back in the US between 10-14 July. While the cast was officially announced during the Worlds Apart finale on May 20, the twenty returning players didn’t actually fly out to Cambodia until May 23, having spent the previous three days sequestered in a Los Angeles hotel. Despite cast and crew arriving on location earlier this week, filming itself has yet to begin.

Members of the press only recently arrived in Cambodia to conduct pre-game interviews, including former winner and three-time Survivor player Parvati Shallow and Entertainment Weekly’s Dalton Ross:

This suggests that the pre-game press will be taking place this weekend. Survivor Second Chance filming is taking place on Koh Rong island which was also home to the recently filmed Survivor Kaôh Rōng: Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty II; the conditions were described as “brutal”. Many have speculated that filming has been delayed due to poor weather conditions or because of a cast member pulling out but as of this moment we do not believe that to be true.

Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance is set to air this September on CBS.

UPDATE: Jeff Probst confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that filming began on May 31. Article edited accordingly.
