CBS has revealed the scheduling plans for its 2019-2020 Fall season, which includes a feature-length Survivor premiere, as well as the return of hit comedy Young Sheldon and the third season of SEAL Team.
Survivor’s thirty-ninth season, Island of the Idols, will premiere Wednesday, September 25 at 8:00 PM and fans will be happy to hear it’s a special 90-minute episode. This marks a return to the 90-minute premiere format following last season’s underwhelming 60-minute Edge of Extinction opener.
The season, which was filmed in Fiji earlier this year, features 20 brand new castaways, and the return of Survivor icons “Boston” Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine, who will act as “mentors.” As previously reported, Rob and Sandra will live on a separate island, the titular Island of the Idols, where throughout the game castaways will visit for advice and advantages.
Stay tuned to Inside Survivor over the coming months for more news and features regarding season 39.
