The Survivor 43 cast has been revealed, and the new season has the 18 castaways split into three tribes.
All of the people who played the game this time are new to the show, so fans aren’t going to see any familiar faces this time.
It’s also important to add that all of Survivor Season 43 has already been filmed in Fiji, but now we are going to finally see how the season plays out.
Ahead of the big premiere, host Jeff Probst has been talking a lot about what comes next and how this season will compare to seasons from the past.
Jeff noted that 39-day seasons wouldn’t be coming back. A number of Survivor fans posted their frustrations with the new 26-day format, but it is here to stay.
One interesting thing that Jeff did mention is that one major Survivor twist has been shelved for now.
