It’s been over a year now since the Winners At War finale, which was the last time Survivor graced our screens. But today brings good news, as CBS officially confirmed that Survivor‘s forty-first season will premiere this fall.

The eye network made the announcement ahead of today’s ViacomCBS Upfronts, which will take place virtually, as they revealed the scheduling plans for the 2021-2022 fall season. This includes the return of Survivor to Wednesday nights at 8 PM. An exact premiere date was not given, but Survivor traditionally launches in September.

10 pm CSI: VEGAS

Season 41, which recently wrapped up filming in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, was initially postponed in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Survivor returned to production in Fiji earlier this year after the country set new COVID-19 protocols, including a mandatory 14-day quarantine for cast and crew. A recent rise in cases had caused potential worries for season 42, but that is also currently in production in Fiji.

“They are in production and everything is going well and according to plan,” CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl told Variety. “We expect to have two versions for the season.”

CBS also released a short teaser with host and executive producer Jeff Probst previewing Survivor 41. “It’s a brand new game, fast-paced, super dangerous, very difficult to win, and absolutely entertaining to watch,” says the Emmy-winning host. “Fans are going to love it.

As Inside Survivor first reported last month, season 41 will be a shortened season, cutting back from 39 days to 26, and the show will also be dropping themed titles.

  1. Why do we have to wait until the fall? Why can’t they are it sooner? Haven’t we already been waiting long enough?

  2. “We expect to have two versions for the season.”

    Does Kahl mean Survivor 42 will also air this fall? A boy can only dream.

    I have never heard a new Survivor season be described like this.

  3. I throughly enjoy a 39 day survivor season. 26 days means less viewing time. But, I’m in such withdrawal I’ll take it!! But season 42…..
