The Survivor 41 cast list was just officially released by CBS. We got our first real look at who we will see on the beaches of Fiji during the Fall 2021 television season, and it is exciting news to pass on to fans of the show.
There are 18 new castaways on the Survivor 41 season, meaning we are getting a lot of new blood. Following up a season of all returners (Winners At War), this will serve as a nice break for the franchise.
The Survivor 41 season premiere arrives on Wednesday, September 22, so it’s less than a month until we get to see the new castaways in action for the first time. It’s going to be exciting to see new content, but fans should also be prepared for a much shorter season of Survivor than normal.
Host Jeff Probst has been constantly promoting the new season on social media, but it’s good to finally get some new tidbits directly from CBS about what we will see this fall.

A fun new season of Survivor ahead
Recently, Jeff Probst celebrated the anniversary of Survivor. He took the time to thank fans who have been with the reality competition show since the very beginning. Now, he can start really teasing details of what we are going to see this fall.
As a reminder, we are going to see the first episode of Survivor 41 on Wednesday, September 22. It is a two-hour premiere episode for the show, giving us a long look at what we can expect from the Fall 2021 season. Due to the scheduling shift at CBS, it means the Big Brother schedule had to change as well.
Survivor airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
