CBS has announced its upcoming midseason schedule, including the premiere of Survivor 42, which will premiere on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, at 8:00 PM with a two-hour episode. The show will move to its regular Wednesday 8-9 PM time period from March 16.

Survivor 42 wrapped up filming in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands in June 2021 and will once again feature 18 new castaways battling it out for the $1 million prize and the title of Sole Survivor. As with season 41, this season will not have a theme or location title, it will simply be referred to as Survivor 42 and will last 26 days.

The shortened length was due to the COVID-19 pandemic and mandatory 14-day quarantine eating into the production schedule. In early 2020, Survivor was forced to shut down production and remained on hiatus for an entire year before cast and crew could return to Fiji.

Survivor 42 is expected to follow an almost identical format to the currently-airing Survivor 41, with 18 castaways divided into 3 tribes, no swaps, and many of the same twists and advantages. While CBS has yet to officially announce the cast, Inside Survivor revealed the season 42 castaways earlier this year.

In other news, CBS also confirmed the finale date for Survivor 41, which will air on Wednesday, December 15, from 8 – 11 PM.

  1. I really hope that after the 42nd season, they will shoot seasons 43 and 44 in another country to see another continent, why not a return to Asia, whether in the Philippines or Myanmar (Burma) to see why not the south of India.

    for the Philippines, they could shoot in a region of Palawan (as Koh Lanta is doing right now for their new season currently being filmed)
