“Survivor” announces 18 new castaways competing on the show’s 43rd edition

SURVIVOR today announced the 18 new castaways who will face off when the Emmy-winning series kicks off an all-real Wednesday night and returns for its 43rd season with a two-hour premiere Wednesday, Sept. 21 (8:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. ET). /PT) on the CBS television network. The series is also available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+*. The show is hosted by Emmy Award-winning Jeff Probst.

After 22 years on television, 646 castaways and 639 torchlight, the Season 43 premiere will be the 621st episode of the CBS Original series, kicking off a new chapter in the groundbreaking reality competition. SURVIVOR continues to evolve as these 18 new players are stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji and must form a society and adapt to their physical and social surroundings, forcing players to choose between personal risk and reward as they navigate the complex social game and trying to forge alliances to last another day.

These determined castaways require strong social skills, strategic acumen, and physical stamina. They will be divided into three tribes of six and will face a faster and more extreme season from the moment they set foot on the beach. Moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and mental and physical challenges force players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies every day.

The individuals competing in Season 43 come from diverse backgrounds and bring a fresh perspective to this new era of gaming, with the same ultimate goal: outsmart, outsmart, and survive. And in the end, only one will be left to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win the million dollar prize.

Here are the 18 new castaways in competition this fall:
