Although little new details have been released about the upcoming season, a short 11 second teaser for Survivor: One World confirms that one major twist will not be returning. After using it for two consecutive seasons, Redemption Island has been voted off the show. Read on to watch the teaser video for more!
While many fans expected that Redemption Island would be nixed from Survivor: One World, it wasn’t confirmed until CBS released the teaser video earlier this week. Watch the teaser below, which clearly declares there is “zero redemption” in the upcoming season:
For many fans, this is happy news because some Survivor purists were very angry with the concept of Redemption Island. The idea that somebody could still win the game after being voted off multiple times wasn’t the kind of twist many fans appreciated. In fact, there were loads of people who despise the concept.
But I have a feeling the Redemption Island twist could likely return in a future edition because host Jeff Probst absolutely loves it. At the finale for Survivor: South Pacific, Probst asked the live studio audience during a commercial break what they felt about Redemption Island. Half the audience cheered and the other half booed, which Probst said confirmed it’s a great twist proven by the split opinions.
Survivor: One World, which marks the show’s 24th season, premieres on Wednesday, Feb. 15. The cast will feature 18 all-new contestants living on one beach as two separate tribes divided by gender. The cast should be announced very soon. Watch a preview for the season below:
