CBS has announced its upcoming fall schedule, including the premiere of the highly anticipated Survivor 41, which will premiere on Wednesday, September 22 at 8:00 PM with a two-hour episode. The show will move to its regular Wednesday 8-9 PM time period from September 29.
While we don’t yet know if the two-hour premiere will be one feature length episode or two regular length episodes back-to-back, given recent history, it stands to reason it is two separate episodes. The Winners At War premiere, which aired in early 2020, was a considered a single episode, however, it still featured two separate Tribal Councils and eliminations.
Survivor has been on hiatus for well over a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic forcing production to shut down back in March 2020. After various setbacks and delayed restarts, the show was eventually able to get back up and running earlier this year. The production crew returned to Fiji and filmed two seasons back-to-back.
As previously reported on Inside Survivor, the upcoming Survivor 41 (and Survivor 42) will be shorter in length than past seasons, lasting just 26 days. There is also no theme or location title for the season, it will simply be referred to as Survivor 41.
