Survivor Season 43: When It Will Be Renewed?

In a new season of Survivor, one of the longest-running reality shows on TV, there are 18 new castaways.

Jeff Probst has been the host of the CBS show Survivor for 22 years and 42 seasons. Now, season 43 of the reality show is ready to start this fall.

Even though we don’t know much about the new season yet, we can guess that a group of strangers stuck in a remote place will face new challenges, form new bonds, and lie to each other. The end goal is always the same: to win $1 million and be the only person left.

The shipwrecked people were taken to the Mamanuca Islands, which are a group of 20 islands in Fiji. Since season 33, this is where the show has been filmed. Probst told Entertainment Weekly, “I hope we stay here forever.” He said it has everything they need, like beautiful water, beaches, the jungle, and wildlife.

Here’s what we know about Survivor’s 43rd season.

Release Date

On September 21, the first two hours of the new Survivor season will air. You can watch the episode at 8 pm ET/PT, so prepare your bathrobe.

The 43rd season of Survivor airs every Wednesday at 8 pm ET/PT on CBS. You can stream the most recent episodes on Paramount Plus the next day.

Very quickly, 18 new players will go from not knowing each other to living together and competing against each other. The list of cast members hasn’t been made public yet, but it should come closer to the start date.

What is the Survivor Premise?

As usual, on Survivor, the castaways are split into tribes, (probably) form alliances, and compete in physically and mentally challenging rewards and immunity challenges while in a remote location with little food. The point? To outthink, outplay, and outlast every other player to win $1 million.

This season, the focus is on the society made by the players. If you’ve seen a previous season, you know it’s all about adapting to your surroundings.

“What we’re going to look at this season is how the society they create affects the game they’re playing,” Probst said. “You have to figure out what the values, norms, and rules of this society are because they make the rules.”


If Jeff Probst wasn’t the host, would it still be Survivor? He’s the only host the show has ever had for more than 20 years, and he’s back for his 43rd season. The 60-year-old has been nominated for 10 Emmys and has won four for Outstanding Host For A Reality or Reality-Competition Program.

If you can believe it, Probst quit the hit TV show in 2009 because he was tired of it. But he returned after taking some time off and making changes to the production team.

“My Achilles’ heel for most of my life was that nobody saw me as a storyteller. They saw me as a white guy with dark hair who was just a game show host,” he told The New York Times (opens in new tab). “And that was the thing that could kill me regarding how I saw myself. It felt like a punch to the kidneys.

How to Watch

All of the new episodes of Survivor season 43 air live on CBS. Since CBS is one of the four most extensive TV networks in the US, you can watch it if you have a traditional pay-TV cable subscription or a good old-fashioned TV antenna. FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV, and YouTube TV are all live TV streaming services that also carry CBS. Paramount Plus premium subscribers can watch their local CBS station through the streaming service.

Now that Paramount Plus is available in the UK, UK fans of Survivor will have to go there to try to watch episodes.

When Season 3 Film

Filming for Survivor 43 likely began in late April or early May. Like seasons 41 and 42, likely, it was only filmed for 26 days. This is a significant change from the 39 days in which many previous seasons were filmed.

Survivor Diversity News

In June 2019, a group of Black Survivor alumni talked about their experiences and the problems they faced as minorities on the show. They were inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and discussions about anti-racist practices.

The “Soul Survivors Organization,” which is made up of contestants from seasons 1 to 40, put out a petition that has been widely shared. It asks the show to do several anti-racist things, such as casting at least 30% BIPOC in each cast, hiring more BIPOC as crew members, and actively supporting the model after the season by giving them access to mental health resources.

Probst says about the petition, “The whole culture is in a beautiful upheaval, and it’s our job to respond to it so that Survivor continues to reflect our culture, our behavior, and how we interact with each other.” Everything that happens will change how Survivor goes forward.

As a result of the initiative, CBS said in November 2020 that its unscripted shows would have to follow new rules to make them more diverse. That means that at least half of every show’s contestants must be Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC). It also means that at least 25% of its annual unscripted development budget must go to projects made by or with BIPOC producers.
