Survivor 41

Survivor 41 is almost here!

The new season of the classic CBS competition show, set on the islands of Fiji, will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 22 with 18 new castaways competing for $1 million and the title of Sole Survivor. The contestants will be divided into three tribes of six "to face a faster, more intense and more dangerous season than ever before," the network said in a press release.

"I cannot remember a time when I've been this excited to launch a new season of Survivor," executive producer and host Jeff Probst said in the release. "Survivor 41 features a really likable group of savvy Survivor players, and they are in for the most intense, most difficult and most dangerous season we've ever done."

The new season will also feature more fan interaction than ever, as Probst, 59, will address the audience directly throughout the season and let viewers in on some twists before the players are made aware. Junior fans can test their own Survivor skills by playing the new Game within the Game, in which they can spot a hidden rebus puzzle within the episode and then solve it.

"We know we have the most loyal fans of any show on television, and we are pumped to bring them a new, exciting season of Survivor!" Probst said.
