The 'Survivor 41' Cast

CBS The 'Survivor 41' Cast

On Monday, August 30, CBS announced the 18 castaways who will make up the season 41 cast of “Survivor,” which premieres Wednesday, September 22 at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on CBS with a two-hour premiere episode.

The Cast

The CBS press release announcing the cast teases, “As the thrilling competition begins on the beautiful islands of Fiji, 18 determined castaways will be divided into three tribes of six to face a faster, more intense and more dangerous season than ever before. The unpredictable, accelerated pace will test even the strongest super-fan, as supplies are minimal, reward challenges are scarce, and players find themselves faced with advantages that could significantly help their game or, just as easily, extinguish their torch.

“I cannot remember a time when I’ve been this excited to launch a new season of ‘Survivor,’” said executive producer and host Jeff Probst in a statement. “’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. 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!'”
