Survivor: Season 34 Wraps Up Filming In Fiji

Filming comes to a close in Fiji for Survivor’s thirty-fourth season, the all-returnee Survivor: Game Changers – Mamanuca Islands.

It’s been a long journey for Survivor: Season 34, since the initial calls went out to potential returnees back in January, to the chopped and changed themes, to last minute drop-outs and replacements. Eventually, the final cast of twenty flew out to Fiji on May 30, ready to begin their 39-day adventure for the chance to win a million dollars.

The game began on June 6, in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, after almost a week’s worth of pre-game preparation and press interviews. Just a few hours ago, on Thursday, July 14 (in the early hours of the morning for American readers), cameras captured Day 39’s final tribal council where the jury voted for the winner of Survivor: Game Changers. Filming has now wrapped, and the cast is expected to arrive back in the US on Friday afternoon.


Despite being filmed already, Survivor: Game Changers is not scheduled to air on CBS until March 2017. That means after we’ve completed our Cast Connections feature, Inside Survivor’s coverage of Season 34 will take a back-seat until the next off-season. Instead, we will turn to the upcoming Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, which is set to premiere Wednesday, September 21 at 8:00 pm with a 90-minute special.

In August, CBS and various other media outlets should release the official cast bios and pre-game interviews for Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X. Inside Survivor will have cast assessments and more next month. For an early sneak peek, you can check out the Inside Survivor season 33 cast bios.

Coverage of Season 34 will return from December with cast retrospectives, interviews, assessments and more.
