It’s edging closer. Mark your calendars now. Get ready to watch the epic island battle once again. CBS has announced that Survivor: Philippines will make its debut at 8 p.m. EST with a special 90-minute premiere episode on Wednesday, Sept. 19. What more can you expect from the show’s 25th season? Read on to find out!
As we learned during the Survivor: One World finale in May, Survivor: Philippines features three returning players who were all medically evacuated from a previous season. Each veteran will be placed on one of three tribes — red, blue and yellow — with a batch of new castaways.
The entire cast will be introduced at some point in August.
After a rather lackluster season with Survivor: One World, I’m hopeful that Survivor: Philippines will be a stronger example of why this is still such a great reality show. Hopefully the Redemption Island twist will stay dead in this season, too.
What are you expecting from Survivor: Philippines? Did you like the way Survivor: One World played out or were you among those who disliked the season? Are you happy more former castaways are returning to play the game again? Sound off and leave a comment below!
