CBS ANNOUNCES THE 20 RETURNING CASTAWAYS COMPETING ON THE NEXT EDITION OF "SURVIVOR"

Special Two-Hour Season Premiere, Themed "Game Changers," Airs Wednesday, March 8

The Season Premiere Marks the 500th Episode of the Series

CBS announced today the 20 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR, when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 34th season with a special two-hour premiere, Wednesday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. 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."

In the summer of 2000, the premiere of SURVIVOR introduced a mentally challenging, physically demanding and strategically complex adventure series to television. This spring's edition, themed "Game Changers," will feature 20 returning castaways who helped evolve the game even further by launching an accelerated level of competition and proven willingness to risk it all in order to become the Sole Survivor. These castaways who have made some of the biggest moves in the history of the game will be divided into two groups of 10 and forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other. The show, filmed in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.

The following are the 20 returning castaways, including the previously announced two-time winner Sandra Diaz-Twine; fan-favorites Cirie Fields, Ciera Easton and Tai Trang; challenge dominator Ozzy Lusth; Cagayan winner Tony Vlachos; Millennial stand-out Michaela Bradshaw; and Caleb Reynolds, who was medically evacuated from his earlier season.
