Are you getting excited for the premiere of Survivor: South Pacific? The TV Guide Channel is all set to squash your Survivor hunger with a special one-hour preview of the upcoming season. When does their inside look at Survivor: South Pacific air? What will it showcase? Read on to find out!
The TV Guide Channel will broadcast their Survivor: South Pacific Preview for the first time at 9 p.m. on Sunday, September 4. But if you miss that one, don’t worry. The special is scheduled to be replayed several times:
- Tuesday, September 6 at 1 p.m.
- Wednesday, September 7 at 8 p.m.
- Thursday, September 8 at noon.
- Friday, September 9 at 1 p.m. and 9 p.m.
There might be more air times of the preview added to TV Guide’s lineup as the season premiere edges closer.
The special, which TV Guide has done for many seasons prior to each premiere, will showcase interviews with every cast member. Host Jeff Probst will also offer up his predictions and comments for the season throughout the preview.
My favorite part of these special previews is the behind-the-scenes tour of the new Tribal Council set. Jeff typically offers some interesting details on how the set was constructed before showing off the torches and snuffer.
You can also expect to see a glimpse of the first challenge of the season.
Survivor: South Pacific, which marks the show’s 23rd edition, kicks off with a special 90-minute premiere on Wednesday, September 14. It features 16 new castaways up against veterans Benjamin “Coach” Wade and Ozzy Lusth who are each returning for their third time on the show.
Who do you think will be the first person voted out of the game? Do you think Coach or Ozzy stand a chance? Who is your favorite castaway based on first impressions? Sound off and leave us a comment below!
