CBS Announces 20 All-Star Castaways For Next Season Of ‘Survivor’

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)   —  CBS on Wednesday announced the 20 castaways who will compete against each other on “Survivor: Game Changers” when the series returns next month for its 34th season.

The show will kickoff with a special two-hour premiere, Wednesday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 p.m..PT).

Notably, the season premiere marks the 500th episode of the series.

“When we started this adventure, I don’t think anybody would have predicted we’d still be going strong 17 years later!” said host and executive producer Jeff Probst. “I’m as enthusiastic as ever and love the relationship we have with our audience. I think “Survivor” fans are really going to enjoy this season.”

The 20 castaways in the new season have all played the game before — some of them will be playing for the fourth time. Many of the players are fan favorites and game all-stars, notably two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine; Cirie Fields, Jeff Varner, Ciera Easton, Tai Trang; Ozzy Lusth; winner Tony Vlachos and Michaela Bradshaw. Caleb Reynolds, who was medically evacuated from his earlier season, is back for redemption. (Reynolds also has been an ever-shirtless houseguest on “Big Brother.”)
